Dec as follows after 2 sts off white: Slip 1 red st as if to K, K 1, psso.
----------------------------------------------------------

LEFT MITTEN:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 52 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 with red. K 1 round, then work 4 rounds rib = K 1/P 1. Then work pattern according to A.1 while AT THE SAME TIME dec 4 sts evenly on 1st round = 48 sts. After A.1 work A.2 while AT THE SAME TIME inc 2 sts evenly on 1st round = 50 sts. Adjust so that hearts in A.2 are directly above one of the big hearts from A.1. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
When it has been worked up to the first black squares in the diagram, work A.3 over these 3 squares, work the other sts according to A.2 as before. Inc in A.3 with 1 YO inside 2 sts in each side as shown in diagram. On next round K YO twisted to avoid holes. When 5 inc have been done in each side on thumb gusset (there are now 13 sts in thumb gusset), work 4 rounds without inc (see diagram A.3). Then slip the 13 thumb sts on 1 stitch holder. Cast on 3 new sts behind sts on stitch holder = 50 sts on needle. Then work in the round according to A.2.
When dec at the top of mitten beg, dec 1 st on each side of the 2 off white colored sts in each side on every round 10 times in total – READ DECREASE TIP. After all dec are done there are 10 sts on needle. On next round work all sts tog 2 by 2 with off white. Cut the yarns and pull them through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

THUMB:
Slip the 13 thumb sts back on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4. Pick up 9 sts behind the thumb = 22 sts on needle. Continue pattern in the round according to diagram A.3. Dec the same way on thumb as at the top of mitten, but dec beg earlier at the outside of thumb (i.e. 4 dec in each side on outside of thumb and 3 dec in each side on inside of thumb). After all dec are done there are 8 sts on needle. On next round, work all sts tog 2 by 2 with off white. Cut the yarns and pull them through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

RIGHT MITTEN:
Cast on and work as left mitten but reversed, i.e. the 3 black sts for thumb are worked in second, third and fourth st from the right in the diagram.

I'm on A2... Added 2st. Then continued..but it done not make the base of big hearts line up with small ones....any advice ????? Help!

DROPS Design 09.10.2018 kl. 09:47:

Dear Heather, you will have to calculate how to increase before starting A.2 so that the big hearts will be lined up with the smaller ones. Happy knitting!

Når jeg har strikket 9 masker op til tommelfingeren og har 13 i forvejen stemmer det godt med 22 masker, men hvordan kan jeg strikke rundt efter diagram A 3 når jeg nu er på pind nr 14 og der er 3 pinde endnu inden diagrammet begynder at "hænge sammen" skal disse "overskydende" pinde være uden mønster? Eller hvad gør jeg lige efter at jeg har strikket de 9 masker op, og skal til at begynde på tommelfingeren?

DROPS Design 13.01.2016 kl. 14:09:

Hej. Då har du dessvärre gjort lite fel, se här: "Når der er taget ud 5 gange i hver side af tommelfinger-kilen (der er nu 13 m i tommelf-kilen), strikkes der 4 omg uden udtagning (se diag A.3). Derefter sættes de 13 tommelf-m på 1 tråd". Du skulle ha stickat de 4 omg för du satte tommelf-m på 1 tråd.

Mihin on kadonnut Valentine sydänkuvioisen sukan ohje sivuiltanne ?Olen hukannut sen, ja haluaisin tehdä niitä joulahjoiksi. Se on niin upea malli ,että nyt minulta viedään kohta omat sukat jaloistani.

Norske vanter med hjerter. Der står, at man efter at have strikket A1, fortsætter med A2 samtidig med at der tages 2 m ud jævnt fordelt på 1. omgang. Sørg for at hjerterne i A2 kommer lige over et af de store hjerter i A1. Men hvis man tager ud "jævnt fordelt", så kommr opskriften ikke til at passe med hjerterne. Hvordan gør jeg så? Desværre kan de ikke hjælpe mig hos Rito, hvor jeg har købt garn. mvh

DROPS Design 02.09.2014 kl. 11:17:

Jo de 2 nye m strikkes i rød sammen med alle de andre på første p i A.2. Og så er det bare at følge diagrammet fra næste p (de 2 nye m er da ekstra i venstre side og de strikkes natur ifølge diagrammet)

Er dette mønsteret til en damevott,eller vil den passe til en herre også?

DROPS Design 08.04.2014 kl. 09:27:

Det er jo one-size og de bør være lange nok, men det kommer jo an på hvor store hænder han har :)

Lovisa 17.03.2014 - 19:47:

Har stickat en vante och håller på med andra i paret.. Jättenöjd med mönster, har aldrig stickat vantar förut :)

Johanna 23.02.2014 - 22:35:

Hej. Hade man kunnat få en lättare förklaring på hur man stickar tummen? Suttit flera timmar och försökt komma på hur man ska göra med dessa ökningar.

DROPS Design 03.03.2014 kl. 23:53:

Hej, Du har 3 m till tummen, dessa stickas "natur, röd, natur" i 4 varv. 5.e v: när du kommer till dessa 3 m, så stickar du "natur, omsl med röd, röd, omslag med röd, natur", nu har du 5 m till tumme. 6:e v: "natur, röd, natur, röd, natur". 7:e v: "natur, röd, omslag med röd, natur, omslag med röd, röd, natur". Forts på samma sätt med ökn som omslag i rött. Omsl stickas som maskor på nästa v.

Marie 05.02.2014 - 15:15:

Hej! Ni får titta igen när ni lägger ut mönstrena på drops Det inte vad för färger om man ska sticka efter eran DIAGRAM? Skriv gärna till det. Mvh Marie.

Elsa 04.02.2014 - 18:07:

Om jag vill sticka dessa underbara vantar i Lima, kommer det fortfarande räcka med 50 g av varje färg? :)

DROPS Design 06.02.2014 kl. 09:26:

Du har inte lika många m i 50 gr Lima, så du kanske behöver 1 nystan till i den röda :)
