INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO, on next row K YO twisted to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec as follows (beg 3 sts before marker): K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is between these 2 sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.
--------------------------------------------------------

RIGHT MITTEN:
Cast on 40-40 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with light grey and K 1 round. Then work rib (= K 2/P 2). When rib measures 6-7 cm, work next round as follows: * K 5, K the next 2 tog *, repeat from *-* 2 more times, P 2, * K 2 tog, K 2 *, repeat from *-* 2 more times, P 2 and finish with K 3 = 34-34 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm, work next round as follows: * K 2 tog, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* the entire round. Work next round as follows (K YOs): 18 sts in stocking st (= inside hand), A.1 (= 13 sts) and 3 sts in stocking st. Continue pattern like this. When piece measures 13-14 cm, inc 1 st on each side of first st on round for thumb - READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc on each side of the inc sts on every other round 4-5 more times = 44-46 sts. Now slip the 11-13 thumb sts on 1 stitch holder. Continue in the round as before AT THE SAME TIME cast on 1 new st behind thumb sts on next round = 34-34 sts. When mitten measures approx. 26-28 cm (try the mitten on if needed, approx. 4 cm until finished measurements), insert 1 marker after the first 16 sts on round and 1 marker after the next 17 sts (1 st remains on round after last marker). Now dec 1 st on each side of both markers - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every other round 2 more times and then every round 3 times = 10 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

THUMB:
Slip the 11-13 thumb sts back on double pointed needles size 4 mm. In addition pick up 4-3 sts behind thumb = 15-16 sts. Work in stocking st until the thumb itself measures approx. 4½-5 cm (try on the mitten, approx. ½ cm remains until finished measurements). K 2 rounds AT THE SAME TIME K all sts tog 2 by 2 on both rounds = 4-4 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

LEFT MITTEN:
Cast on and work as right but reversed – i.e. beg rib with 2 P sts (instead of 2 K sts). Work 1st round after rib as follows: K 3, P 2, * K 2, K 2 tog *, repeat from *-* 2 more times, P 2, * K 2 tog, K 5 *, repeat from *-* 2 more times. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm, work next round as follows: * K 2 tog, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* the entire round. Work next round as follows (K YOs): 3 sts in stocking st, A.1 (= 13 sts) and 18 sts in stocking st. Inc for thumb on each side of last st on round. Before dec at the top of mitten insert 1st marker after 1st st on round and 2nd marker after the next 17 sts (= 16 sts remain on round after last marker).

TIES:
Cut 2 lengths of 2.5 metres each with off white. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Make a knot at each end. Thread the tie up and down through the eyelet holes on the mitten. Make 2 pompoms with an approx. diameter of 2 cm in off white. Fasten a pompom in each end of the tie. Repeat on the other mitten.
