PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

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 / US 2.5 with Nepal. K 1 round. Insert 1 marker at the beg of the round. Continue to work rib as follows: * P 2, K 2 *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total, P 2, K 3, P 3, K 4, P 2, K 4, P 3 and K 3. Continue like this until piece measures 4-5 cm / 1½"-2''. Then work 1 round with dec as follows: * P 2 tog, K 2, P 2, K 2 *, repeat from *-* 2 times in total, P 2 tog, K 3, P 2 tog, P 1, K 4, P 2 tog, K 4, P 1, P 2 tog and K 3 = 34-34 sts.
Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6, work next round as follows: 18 sts in stockinette st (= inside hand), A.1 (= 13 sts) and 3 sts in stockinette st. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat A.x upwards - AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 11-12 cm / 4½"-4 3/4" inc 1 st on each side of first st on round (= mid st on thumb) for thumb – READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc on each side of mid st 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, cast on 1 new st behind thumb on next round = 34-34 sts. When A.x has been repeated 2 times in total vertically, piece measures approx. 24-25 cm / 9½"-9 3/4". Repeat last row in A.1 until piece measures approx. 24½-26½ cm / 9½"-10 1/4"'' (try the mitten on if needed, approx. 3½ cm / 1 1/4" 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 work stockinette st while 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 / US 6. In addition pick up 4-3 sts behind thumb = 15-16 sts. Work in stockinette st until the thumb itself measures approx. 4½-5 cm / 1 3/4"-2" (try on the mitten, approx. ½ cm / ½'' remains until finished measurements). K 2 rounds while 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. work rib as follows: K 3, P 3, K 4, P 2, K 4, P 3, K 3, P 2, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total. Work 1st round after rib as follows: K 3, P 2 tog, P 1, K 4, P 2 tog, K 4, P 1, P 2 tog, K 3, P 2 tog, * K 2, P 2, K 2, P 2 tog *, repeat from *-* 2 times in total. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6, work next round as follows: 3 sts in stockinette st, A.2 (= 13 sts) and 18 sts in stockinette st. Inc for thumb on each side of last st on round (= mid st on thumb). 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).

Vorrei inviarvi la foto delle muffole rosse che sono riuscita a realizzare.\r\nPotete darmi una mail ? Grazie.\r\nL\'unica difficoltà incontrata é nella spiegazione (e relativo video) di come iniziare gli aumenti del pollice. Sarebbe necessario spiegare con parole piú chiare e mostrare in un video il procedimento iniziale con piú lentezza e piú volte.\r\nSandra

Non mi é chiaro come effettuare il giro di diminuzioni dopo il polso a coste. Per muffola dx: indica di diminuire lavorando insieme 2 m a rovescio. Nei SUGGERIMENTI DIMINUZIONI\" consiglia di diminuire lavorando 2 m insieme a diritto. Non mi é chiaro come procedere. Devo seguire il testo o i suggerimenti ? Potete chiarirmi se no non posso continuare il lavoro delle muffole rosse "Christmas touch". Grazie. Sandra

Buongiorno Sandra. Dopo le coste deve diminuire come indicato nel testo, quindi lavorando 2 m insieme a rov. Seguirà le indicazioni che trova nel suggerimento per le diminuzioni, verso la fine della muffola, poco prima delle istruzioni del pollice , dove trova il riferimento: leggere il suggerimento per le diminuzioni. Buon lavoro!

Hej! Det är första gången jag stickar vantar. Vad betyder det när det står att jag ska lägga upp 40-40 maskor (mönster Holiday touch)? Mvh Thérèse

Hej. Det motsvarar de två storlekarna (S/M - M/L). Dvs stickar du den minsta storleken följer du den första siffran och stickar du den största så följer du den andra siffran. Lycka till!
