RIGHT MITTEN:
Worked in the round. Cast on 58-64 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1 with Fabel. K 1 round and continue in rib, K1/P1, until rib measures 6 cm / 2 3/8''. K 1 round, AT THE SAME TIME dec 10 sts evenly = 48-54 sts. Continue in stockinette st. When piece measures 7 cm / 2¾'' inc 1 st for thumb each side of the 3rd and 4th st at beg of round. Inc with YO, to avoid a hole K YO into back of loop on next round. Repeat the inc on each side of the inc sts on every other round a total of 5-6 times = 12-14 thumb sts (58-66 sts in total). When piece measures 12-13 cm / 4 3/4"-5 1/8" slip the 12-14 thumb-sts on a stitch holder. On next round cast on 2 new sts behind thumb-sts = 48-54 sts. Continue in the round in stockinette st until piece measures 22-23 cm / 8 3/4"-9" (3.5 -4 cm / 1 1/4"-1½" remain). Now insert a marker each side (i.e. 24-27 sts on upper hand and 24-27 sts in palm of hand). Continue in stockinette st, AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st each side of each marker (= 4 dec sts). Dec as follows 2 sts before marker: Slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso. Dec as follows after marker: K2 tog. Repeat the dec on every other round a total of 7-8 times = 20-22 sts left on needle. K2 tog across next round = 10-11 sts left. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

THUMB:
Slip the 12-14 sts from stitch holder back on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm / US 1 and pick up 2 sts behind these sts = 14-16 sts. Work stockinette st in the round for approx 5.5-6 cm / 2 1/4"-2 3/8" and K2 tog across next round = 6-7 sts. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
