MITTENS:

MAGIC CIRCLE:
To avoid hole in the middle beg with this technique:
Hold yarn end in the left hand and make a loop around left index finger (from left to right). Hold the loop with left thumb and index finger. Insert needle through loop, get yarn from ball (i.e. place yarn 1 time over needle from you), pull yarn back through loop, 1 YO (now place yarn from the back and towards you) and pull YO through sts on needle, * insert needle through loop, 1 YO (place yarn from the back and towards you), pull YO through loop, 1 YO (from the back and towards you) and pull YO through outermost st on right needle (i.e. the last st made) *, repeat from *-* until there are 12 sts on needle. Distribute sts on 4 double pointed needles size 3 mm as explained in pattern.
Then work as explained in pattern – AT THE SAME TIME pull yarn end so that loop is tighten tog and the hole disappears.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. Work entire pattern in stocking st.

LATVIAN BRAID:
Braid consists of 3 rounds - all rounds are shown in diagram and worked as follows:
ROUND 1: * K 1 with off white, K 1 with coral *, repeat from *-* the entire round.
ROUND 2: Place both strands in the front of piece (towards you). Then move the off white strand to the back, P 1 and move the strand to the front again. Pull the coral strand underneath the off white strand and then move the coral to the back, P 1 and move the strand to the front again. Continue like this with P alternately with off white and coral but always place the strand underneath the strand from the last st worked.
ROUND 3: Work as 2nd round but now place strand always OVER strand from the last st worked.
----------------------------------------------------------

LEFT MITTEN:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles and work from fingertip to wrist.
Start with mustard and MAGIC CIRCLE - see explanation above = 12 sts distributed on 4 double pointed needles 3 mm - NOTE: If you do not want to start with a magic circle cast on 12 sts with mustard distributed over 4 double pointed needles size 3 mm (when mitten is done baste a yarn up and down through sts around hole at the top and tighten tog).
Then work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1 and inc as shown in diagram = 52 sts on needle. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When piece measures 12 cm from the tip (i.e. after round marked with arrow in diagram), cast off 3 sts over the 3 black squares in diagram for thumb opening (try the mitten and work to desired length). On next round: cast on 13 new sts over these = 62 sts on needle. NOTE: cast on as if working first row of diagram A.2, ie: cast on with 2 colours. See black star in diagram. Continue A.2 over these 13 sts, and A.1 as over the remaining sts. When A.2 has been worked, there are 52 sts on needle and continue A.1 in the round over all sts again. When A.1 has been worked, loosely cast off with coral. The entire mitten measures approx. 24 cm.

THUMB:
Pick up 1 st in each of the 13 sts cast on for thumb opening and pick in addition up 9 sts around thumb opening = 22 sts. Distribute sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.3. Dec as shown in diagram. When A.3 has been worked, 8 sts remain on needle. Cut the yarns and pull them through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

POMPOM:
Make 1 small pompom with coral with an approx. diameter of 3 cm. When tying the yarn around the pompom leave approx. 20 cm of yarn at the end. Now use the yarn ends and make knots after each other in a row until this tie is approx. 3 cm. Then fasten tie with pompom in the side on mitten (see picture). There should be 2 pompom with ties in the side on mitten.

RIGHT MITTEN:
Cast on and work as left mitten but reversed, i.e. the 3 black squares for thumb are worked in 2nd, 3rd and 4th st from the left in the diagram.

----------------------------------------------------------
SOCKS:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.4 to A.8 – choose diagram for correct size.

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

HEEL:
ROW 1 (= RS): Work until 10-10-11 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso, turn piece.
ROW 2 (= WS): Work until 10-10-11 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to P, P 1, psso, turn piece.
ROW 3 (= RS): Work until 9-10-10 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso, turn piece.
ROW 4 (= WS): Work until 9-10-10 sts remain, slip 1 st as if to P, P 1, psso, turn piece.
Continue dec like this with 1 less st before each dec until there are 17-17-19 sts on needle.

LATVIAN BRAID:
Braid consists of 3 rounds - all rounds are shown in diagram and worked as follows:
ROUND 1: * K 1 with off white, K 1 with coral *, repeat from *-* the entire round.
ROUND 2: Place both strands in the front of piece (towards you). Then move the off white strand to the back, P 1 and move the strand to the front again. Pull the coral strand underneath the off white strand and then move the coral to the back, P 1 and move the strand to the front again. Continue like this with P alternately with off white and coral but always place the strand underneath the strand from the last st worked.
ROUND 3: Work as 2nd round but now place strand always OVER strand from the last st worked.
----------------------------------------------------------

SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles and work from the toes and up.
Cast on 12 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm with off white. Work pattern in the round according to diagram A.4 and inc as shown in diagram = 48 sts on needle. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When A.4 is done, continue pattern in the round according to diagram A.5A. When piece measures 15-17-18 cm from toe (approx. 7-7-9 cm remain until full foot length – try the sock and work to desired length) insert 1 marker in 1st st on round and 1 marker in 25th st on round (both markers are in a mustard st on sock). Now inc 1 st before first marker and 1 st after 2nd marker - READ INCREASE TIP (= 2 sts inc). Inc like this every other round a total of 6-6-8 times = 60-60-64 sts on needle –NOTE: Work the inc sts in stripes under foot. After last inc keep the first 25 sts on needle and continue with stripes back and forth according to diagram A.6 over the remaining 35-35-39 sts for 3½-3½-4 cm (sock measures 22-24-27 cm from the toe). Then work HEEL - see explanation above, over the 35-35-39 sts (continue stripes in A.6 as before). After heel work next round as follows: Work with off white over the 17-17-19 sts on heel, pick up 8-8-9 sts (with off white) along edge on the 3½-3½-4 cm worked back and forth, continue A.5A over the next 25 sts and pick up 8-8-9 sts along edge on the 3½-3½-4 cm in the other side = 58-58-62 sts on needle. Insert 1 marker, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work next round as follows: Work pattern according to diagram A.7A over the first 33-33-37 sts (= behind sock) and dec AT THE SAME TIME 4-4-6 sts evenly over these sts on first round, so that pattern continues over 29-29-31 sts, continue A.5A as before over the next 25 sts (= at the front of sock) = 54-54-56 sts on needle. When A.7A has been worked one time vertically, repeat A.7B over these 29-29-31 sts (continue A.5A as before at the front of sock). AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 4 cm, inc 1 st inside outermost st in each side of A.7B - READ INCREASE TIP (= 2 sts inc). Inc like this every 4 cm a total of 3 times = 60-60-62 sts - NOTE: Work the inc sts in A.7B but the outermost 1-1-2 sts in each side should always be in off white.
When piece measures approx. 13-14-15 cm from marker – adjust after one whole repetition in A.5A and finish as shown on last round in A.5B K 1 round over all sts with off white. Then continue pattern in the round according to diagram A.8. AT THE SAME TIME on round marked with arrow inc 4-4-6 sts evenly = 64-64-68 sts. When A.8 has been worked, loosely cast off with coral. Sock measures approx. 19-20-21 cm from marker.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew opening at the front of toe tog with grafting/kitchener sts in mustard.
Knit another sock the same way.

Correction - LEFT MITTEN: When piece measures 12 cm from the tip (i.e. after round marked with arrow in diagram), cast off 3 sts over the 3 black squares in diagram for thumb opening (try the mitten and work to desired length). On next round: cast on 13 new sts over these = 62 sts on needle. NOTE: cast on as if working first row of diagram A.2, ie: cast on with 2 colours. See black star in diagram. Continue A.2 over these 13 sts, and A.1 as over the remaining sts.

Liebes Garnstudio-Team, auch ich verzweifel am Daumenloch. Wie wird weitergestrickt, wenn die drei Maschen abgekettet sind? Aus 3 abgeketteten Maschen 13 Maschen aufnehmen geht nach meinem Verständnis gar nicht. Danke und viele Grüße

DROPS Design 10.12.2018 kl. 08:27:

Liebe Andrea, eine Korrektur wurde am 16/11 dieses Jahr gemacht - siehe am Ende der schriftlichen Anleitung. Die 3 Maschen werden abgekettet und die 13 neuen Maschen werden mit den Farben der 1. Reihe in A.2 bei der nächsten Runde angschlagen, dann stricken Sie A.2 über diese 13 M. A.2 wurde auch korrigiert. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Nora 15.11.2018 - 11:17:

I also thought that logically i have to cast on 13 on a next row after cast off 3 stitches for a thumb opening to work, but then on A.2 diagram i see i have to work 13 rows in total and on A.1 diagram i am left with 12 rows for a thumb opening, because that first row out of 13 i already used for casting off 😕 So either i have to eliminate the bottom row from A.2 diagram or figure out how to cast on on the same row the cast off is. Could there be a mistake in diagrams?

DROPS Design 15.11.2018 kl. 13:46:

Dear Nora, we are checking this part and will hopefully be back as soon as possible, thanks in advance for your patience.

Maria 14.11.2018 - 19:40:

Hur gör man tumöppningen på vanten? Vilken färg avmaskar man med och vilken färg använder man när man lägger upp de nya 13 maskorna? Var kommer de här maskorna att ligga? Efter avmaskningen eller före det? Väldigt otydligt.

DROPS Design 16.11.2018 kl. 09:36:

Hei Maria. Etter en gjennomgang av oppskriften har vi nå rettet den slik at tommelåpningen stemmer. Du feller på omgangen etter den med sort pil i diagrammet, og legger opp 13 masker på neste omgang. Du legger opp med 2 farger, som om du strikker førset rad i A.2. Dette er nå rettet i teksten og diagrammene. Om diagrammet ikke er synlig på den svenske siden enda kan du se på den norske i mellomtiden. God fornøyelse

Nora 14.11.2018 - 09:54:

About mitten thumb opening. When i cast off 3 stitches do i immediately after that cast on 13 new stitches or do i first work in a round and then cast on 13 new stitches at the beginning of cast off stitches? What color yarn do i use for cast off and cast on stitches?

DROPS Design 15.11.2018 kl. 09:37:

Hi Nora, You cast on 13 new stitches on the next row after casting off 3 stitches. Use off white yarn for the casting off and on. Happy knitting!

Nora 13.11.2018 - 02:22:

Hellow. Asking about mittens. Do you have a video on how to do the magic circle? And what type of increases should i use next?

DROPS Design 13.11.2018 kl. 08:50:

Dear Nora, this video below shows how to cast on with a magic circle - just cast on the number of sts as given in the pattern. you increase then as shown in diagram with a YO worked twisted on next round Happy knitting!

Marie 06.06.2018 - 19:12:

Bonjour, Je débute en tricot et je ne sais pas quel type d'augmentations choisir pour réaliser les mittaines (augmentations barrées, jetés...) ? Lesquelles donneront le meilleur rendu? Merci d'avance pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 07.06.2018 kl. 08:40:

Bonjour Marie, on augmente pour les moufles avec 1 jeté tricoté torse au tour suivant pour éviter un trou (cf vidéo, vous pouvez également choisir d'augmenter d'une autre façon, comme vous préférez - n'hésitez pas à faire différents essais sur un échantillon si besoin. Bon tricot!

Samariten 08.03.2018 - 21:39:

Ok. Eftersom jag har på egen hand lyckats klura på tumöppningen kan jag försöka förklara hur jag har gjort: maska av tre maskor där det är svarta rutor på diagrammet med det naturvita garnet. Lägg upp 13 nya maskor på stickan till vänstersidan om arbetet. Sticka första raden på A.2 på de 13 nya maskorna och då är cirkeln sluten igen.

Jenny 02.03.2018 - 14:42:

Jag försöker se på bilderna hur tummen är konstruerad, men på inga av bilderna ser man insidan av vantarna! Jag gissar att ni menar att man ska avmaska tre maskor med den ena tråden och lägga upp nya maskor med den andra tråden eftersom de 13 nya maskorna ska ligga "över" de avmaskade maskorna. Stämmer det? Med vilken färg avmaskar man i så fall? Den senapsgula? En video för att visa hur det är tänkt att man ska göra skulle vara en mycket bra hjälp!

DROPS Design 08.03.2018 kl. 16:29:

Hej Jenny, du stickar upp maskorna som första varvet i A.3 och följer diagrammet. Lycka till!

Maaike Schiphprst 09.02.2018 - 22:37:

Hoera! De hiel is gelukt! Mbv youtube filmpje en eindeloos uithalen en opnieuw proberen.

Maaike Schiphorst 07.02.2018 - 22:12:

Ik ben met de sokken met de hiel bezig. Deze heb ik net klaar maar nu heb ik 10 cm. Aan strepen en ik moet de onderste 3,5 cm. 8 steken opnemen. Heb ik de hiel misschien fout gebreid? Volgens mij heb ik precies gedaan wat er stond.

DROPS Design 15.02.2018 kl. 23:22:

Hoi Maaike, Ik begrijp je vraag niet goed. Ís je werk 10 cm nadat je de hiel hebt gebreid? En wat bedoel je met 'Aan strepen en ik moet de onderste 3,5 cm 8 cm opnemen.' Zou je iets kunnen verduidelijken?
