LEFT MITTEN:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.

WOMEN: Cast on 96 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with off white. Work diagram M.1 over all sts, after diagram M.1 there are 48 sts on needle. Then work rib with K over K and P over P until piece measures 10 cm. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work 1 round in stocking st while at the same time dec 4 sts evenly = 44 sts. Continue with diagram M.2.

MEN: Cast on 56 sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with off white. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 10 cm.
Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm – NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work 1 round in stocking st while at the same time dec 4 sts evenly = 52 sts. Continue with diagram M.4.

WOMEN and MEN:
When it has been worked up to the 3 black squares in the diagram, work diagram M.3 women and diagram M.5 for men over these 3 squares. Inc in diagram M.3/M.5 with 1 YO inside 1 st in each side, on next round K YO twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st) to avoid holes. When 4-5 inc has been worked (11-13 sts in thumb gusset), work 6-4 rounds without inc, then slip the 11-13 thumb sts on a stitch holder. Cast on 3 new sts behind sts on stitch holder = 44-52 sts. Then work diagram M.2/M.4. When beg to dec at top of hand, dec on each side of off white st in each side by working 2 sts tog with brown. Dec as follows before the off white st: K 2 tog.

Jeg sidder tilbage med to omgange sorteruder til tommel kile selv om jeg er nåede de 4runder hvor der ikke tages ud. Hvad har jeg misset?

DROPS Design 20.12.2018 kl. 08:43:

Hei Louise. Jeg regner med du strikker herrestørrelsen, og her var det visst en feil i diagrammet. Det var 1 omgang mer med sorte ruter i M.4 enn det var omganger til tommekil i M.5. Vi har nå rettet dette så det er 16 omganger på hvert diagram. Siden du allerede har strikket tommekilen kan du strikke den siste omgangen med sorte ruter i henhold til mønsteret på votten. God fornøyelse

Julie Ringsted 14.12.2018 - 11:20:

Beautiful pattern and easy to follow. However, the men's size became rather small even though I knitted the largest size exactly as instructed. I would suggest that you use larger needles, e.g. +1mm / 1,5mm.

B Watkins 27.10.2015 - 23:54:

I think there is a typo. Womens: cast on 96 st. Mens: cast on 56 st.

DROPS Design 28.10.2015 kl. 11:50:

Dear Mrs Watkins, number of sts is correct, for women, you will work diagram M.1 (small "flounced" edge). After M.1 has been worked 1 time in height, there are 44 sts left. Happy knitting!

Anni Jørgensen 11.12.2014 - 23:41:

Er der ikke en fejl i det maskeantal der skal slås op til damestr.??? Der står 96, men til herre str. skal der kun slås 56 m op??

DROPS Design 12.12.2014 kl. 14:17:

Hej Anni. Mönstret er korrekt. I dameversionen har du en flaesekant (du strikker mönster M.1) og det er der ikke paa herreversionen.

Mathian 02.11.2014 - 20:22:

Il faut monter 96m. pour le modèle femme et seulement 56m. pour le modèle homme ! N'y a-t-il pas une erreur ?

DROPS Design 03.11.2014 kl. 09:36:

Bonjour Mme Mathian, pour la version femme, on fait un petit volant (diagramme M.1) au début de la moufle et on tricote le diag. M2 sur 44 m, en version homme, on tricote directement en côtes et on tricote le diagramme M.4 sur 52 m. Bon tricot!

Rut 16.02.2014 - 08:49:

Det är 96 m för damer (volang)

Hedvig Repstock 16.02.2014 - 08:36:

Dame: Slå 46 masker op Ikke 96.

Betty Ravn 16.01.2014 - 22:58:

Hvad menes med op til 3 ruder

DROPS Design 17.01.2014 kl. 17:05:

Hej Betty. Du strikker M.4 eller M.2 er der efter 6 pinde 3 sorte ruder til venstre i den höjre del af diagrammet (= m til tommelf-kile). Det er disse tre sorte ruder der henvises til.

Eirin 12.12.2013 - 11:00:

Hei! Jeg ville bare gi beskjed om at det er feil i mønster m4, rad 14 til høyre for den sorte "tommelboksen" har det sneket seg inn ei sort rute som jeg ikke får til å stemme med mønstret. Siden dette er mitt første vottepar og første forsøk på mønster er jeg veldig konsentrert, så på den første votten ble mønstret fulgt til punkt og prikke, men for å få til høyre votten måtte jeg tegne nytt mønster siden jeg som sagt ikke har gjort dette før og det var da jeg ikke fikk den til å stemme inn.

DROPS Design 13.12.2013 kl. 10:31:

Hei Eirin. Det har du ret i. Vi skal faa det rettet. Tak for meldingen ;-)

Strickelfe 20.11.2013 - 15:22:

Habe diesen Handschuh mehrmals gestrickt weil es ein schönes Muster ist und vorallem eine sehr gute Anleitung dabei ist! Vielen Dank dafür.
