--------------------------------------------------------

MITTEN:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 36-40 (44-52-56) sts on double pointed needle size 2.5 mm with rust. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 5-6 (7-8-9) cm. K 1 round and dec 12-10 (8-10-8) sts evenly = 24-30 (36-42-48) sts. Work in stocking st for 1 cm. On next round beg inc for thumb gusset and inc 1 st on each side of 2nd st on round – READ INCREASE TIP (= 2 sts inc). Repeat inc on every 3rd round a total of 3-4 (5-6-7) times = 7-9 (11-13-15) thumb sts. When piece measures 8½-10 (11½-13-14½) cm in total, slip the 7-9 (11-13-15) thumb sts on 1 stitch holder. Cast on 1 new st behind sts on stitch holder = 24-30 (36-42-48) sts on needle. Continue in stocking st in the round. When piece measures 10-13 (14-15-17) cm in total, work pattern according to diagram A.1 – NOTE: St with arrow in diagram should fit with approx. the middle on top of mitten. After A.1 continue with off white until finished measurements. When piece measures 13-16 (17-19-21) cm, insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 12-15 (18-21-24) sts both on top and inside mitten. On next round dec 1 st on each side of both markers – READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every other round 2-2 (1-3-2) times in total and on every round 2-2 (4-4-6) times in total = 8-14 (16-14-16) sts remain on needle. On next round K all sts tog 2 by 2. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. The entire mitten measures approx. 15-18 (19-22-24) cm.

THUMB:
Slip the 7-9 (11-13-15) sts from stitch holder over thumb gusset back on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm, knit in addition up 5 sts in the edge behind the thumb sts = 12-14 (16-18-20) sts. Work stocking st in the round until thumb measures 2½-3 (3½-4-5) cm. Then K all sts tog 2 by 2 = 6-7 (8-9-10) sts. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Work another mitten but reversed, i.e. when inc for thumb, inc on each side of next to last st on round (instead of on each side of second st on round).
----------------------------------------------------------

HAT:

Cast on 84-96 (104-108-112) sts on double pointed/circular needle size 3 mm with off white. Work 6 rounds in stocking st. Then work 6 rounds rib (= K 2/P 2). After rib work pattern in the round according to diagram A.2. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue in stocking st and rust. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION

SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on (44-48-52) 52-56-56 (60-64-64) sts on double pointed needle size 2.5 mm with rust. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for (8-10-10) 12-14-14 (16-18-18) cm. Work next round as follows: K the first (26-30-30) 30-34-34 (34-38-38) sts and dec (8-8-8) 8-10-10 (10-10-10) sts evenly over these sts = (18-22-22) 22-24-24 (24-28-28) sts K, slip these sts on 1 stitch holder (= mid on top of foot). (18-18-22) 22-22-22 (26-26-26) sts remain on needle for heel. Continue rib as before back and forth for (3-3½-4) 4-4½-4½ (5-5-5) cm. Insert 1 marker in the piece. Then work HEEL DECREASE - see explanation above. After heel decrease, pick up (8-9-10) 10-11-12 (13-13-13) sts on each side of heel and slip the (18-22-22) 22-24-24 (24-28-28) sts from the stitch holder back on needle = (44-50-52) 52-56-58 (64-68-68) sts. Insert a marker on each side of the (18-22-22) 22-24-24 (24-28-28) sts on top of foot.

Repeat dec every other round a total of (4-4-5) 5-7-5 (8-7-7) times = (36-42-42) 42-42-48 (48-54-54) sts. Continue to work until piece measures (4-5-5) 6-8-9 (10-12-13) cm (approx. (6-6-7) 7-7-8 (8-8-9) cm remain until finished measurements). Now work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1 - NOTE: St with arrow in diagram should fit approx. mid on top of foot. When diagram A.1 has been worked, continue with off white until finished measurements. Continue to work until piece measures (7-8-9) 9-11-13 (14-16-18) cm from marker on heel (approx. (3-3-3) 4-4-4 (4-4-4) cm remain until finished measurements). Now insert 1 marker in each side so that there are (18-21-21) 21-21-24 (24-27-27) sts both on top of foot and under foot. On next round dec 1 st on each side of both markers for toes – READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every other round (5-4-4) 7-6-5 (5-5-5) times in total and then every round a total of (1-3-3) 0-1-4 (4-5-5) times = (12-14-14) 14-14-12 (12-14-14) sts remain on needle.

Ich glaube im Diagramm A.1. ist ein Fehler. In Reihe 5 müsste meines Erachtens die erste Masche Natur sein.

DROPS Design 11.02.2019 kl. 09:42:

Liebe Andrea, danke für den Hinweis, unser Designteam wird das Diagramm noch mal prüfen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Beverly 09.01.2019 - 20:31:

Help please, I have made the hat and bound off the stitches as the pattern reads. Now I need to "sew seam at the top of the had inside bind-off edge. sew with grafting/kitchener stitchs". I cannot figure out how to do that would you please help me? I just love this pattern it is so cute. I almost have the mittens finished. I love the way they come to the little point at the end of the fingers. Wonderful!

DROPS Design 10.01.2019 kl. 09:20:

Dear Beverly, this video below shows how to sew the seam at the top of the hat (= bind off stitches). Happy knitting!

Holly 07.01.2019 - 22:22:

I'm trying to knit the mittens for the smallest size. The pattern indicates that there should be 24 stitches once thumb stitches are placed on the holder but the diagram A1. only has 17 stitches. What color are the remaining stitches knit?

DROPS Design 08.01.2019 kl. 09:15:

Dear Holly, work A.1 over the all sts centering the st with the arrow on middle top of hand - read here how to center a diagram - all sts should be worked in pattern. Happy knitting!

Angélique 10.01.2018 - 10:30:

Bonjour. Pour les augmentations du pouce, faut il les faire à chaque fois au début du rang ou marquer la maille et les faire à chaque fois de chaque côté de cette maille ? Merci

DROPS Design 10.01.2018 kl. 13:29:

Bonjour Angélique, les premières augmentations du pouce se font avant et après la 2ème maille du tour (1ère moufle - avant et après l'avant-dernière m du tour pour la 2ème moufle). Augmenter ensuite de part et d'autre des augmentations, soit avant et après ces 3 m pour l'augmentation suivante. Bon tricot!

Salvija 08.12.2017 - 19:11:

I'm knitting Fox mittens and I do not understand this part: *Repeat dec every other round 2-2 (1-3-2) times in total and on every round 2-2 (4-4-6) times in total = 8-14 (16-14-16) sts remain on needle.* Especially that second part*on every round*? do I have have to firstly do dec every other round and after that dec on every round? Thank you!

DROPS Design 09.12.2017 kl. 10:48:

Dear Salvija, you are right, it means exactly just that. The numbers in order refer how many times you have to decrease / increase in each size. And first you have to decrease every other round, then in every round. I hope this helps. Happy Knitting!

Vasiliki 30.10.2017 - 13:23:

I want to knit the mittens size 12/24, but i have a question. I will have 30 sts and i will increase at first round 2 sts and 4 times more. So i will have (1+4) * 2 = 10 sts for thumb and not 9.

DROPS Design 30.10.2017 kl. 14:48:

Dear Mrs Vasiliki, you inc 2 sts a total of 4 times = 8 sts + thumb st = 9 sts. Happy knitting!

Amanda 08.06.2017 - 10:14:

"Fortsätt med slätst runt över alla m och minska så här i varje sida: Sticka de 2 sista m före de (18-22-22) 22-24-24 (24-28-28) m uppepå foten vridet räta tills, och sticka de 2 första m efter de (18-22-22) 22-24-24 (24-28-28) m räta tills. Upprepa minskn på vartannat v totalt (4-4-5) 5-7-5 (8-7-7) ggr = (36-42-42) 42-42-48 (48-54-54) m." Om jag har 52 maskor och ska minska 4x5 maskor=20m, hur ska jag då kunna ha 42 maskor kvar? Det blir ju 32 maskor. Hur ska jag göra?

DROPS Design 08.06.2017 kl. 13:56:

Hej! Du minskar endast 2 maskor per varv, detta upprepas 5 gånger så det minskas alltså totalt 10 maskor.

Anne 21.01.2017 - 21:31:

Bonjour, je voudrais faire les mêmes pour adulte. Combien monter de mailles au début ? Apres, je me débrouillerai... Merci !

DROPS Design 23.01.2017 kl. 10:10:

Bonjour Anne, vous pouvez vous baser sur un modèle similaire (bonnet, moufles ou chaussettes) avec la même tension pour votre taille, retrouvez-les à partir de notre moteur de recherches en page d'accueil. Bon tricot!

Paola 29.12.2016 - 06:54:

Grazie come sempre x la vostra squisita velocità e precisione nelle risposte ai miei dubbi. Buone feste

Paola 28.12.2016 - 20:02:

Buonasera, chiedo una precisazione. le maglie per il pollice vanno aumentate ogni 3 giri; ho un pò curiosato sul forum di drops, e mi sembra si debba fare così: aumenti, un giro senza, un giro senza, di nuovo aumenti. e' giusto così?? grazie buona serata paola

DROPS Design 28.12.2016 kl. 20:32:

Buonasera Paola, è corretto, gli aumenti si fanno ogni 3 giri: si lavora un giro di aumenti, 2 giri senza e si aumenta sul terzo. Buon lavoro!
