See diagram A.1. Work entire pattern in stocking st.

Inc 1 st by making 1 YO. On next round K YO twisted to avoid holes.

Dec 1 st on each side of marker as follows: Beg 2 sts before marker, K 2 tog, marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso (= 2 sts dec).

Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 36-36-40-44 sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm with cerise. K 1 round. Then work rib = K 2/P 2 for 6-7-8-8 cm. K 1 round while at the same time dec 6-4-6-8 sts evenly = 30-32-34-36 sts. Switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When 3-5-5-7 rounds with pattern have been worked, beg inc for thumb gusset and inc 1 st on each side of second st on round – READ INCREASE TIP (work inc sts in cerise). Inc like this every other round 3-3-4-4 times in total (inc on each side of all thumb sts, i.e. thumbs sts inc by 2 sts after every YO). After all inc are done, there are 7-7-9-9 thumb sts and 36-38-42-44 sts in total on needle. When mitten measures 9-10½-12-12½ cm (piece measures approx. 3-3½-4-4½ cm from rib) slip the 7-7-9-9 thumb sts on 1 stitch holder. Cast on 1 new st behind sts on stitch holder = 30-32-34-36 sts on needle. Continue pattern in the round. When mitten measures 12-13-15-16 cm, work as follows with red until finished measurements. When mitten measures 14-15-17-18 cm (piece measures approx. 8-8-9-10 cm from rib), insert 1 marker in each side (= 15-16-17-18 sts between markers). On next round dec 1 st on each side of both markers – READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec). Dec every other round as follows a total of 4 times and then every round 2 times in total = 6-8-10-12 sts remain on needle. On next round K tog all sts 2 by 2 = 3-4-5-6 sts remain. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. Mitten measures approx. 17-18-20-21 cm.

Slip the 7-7-9-9 sts from stitch holder over thumb gusset back on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and pick in addition up 5 new sts with cerise in the edge behind the thumb sts = 12-12-14-14 sts. Work in stocking st in the round for 3-3½-4-4½ cm. On next round K tog all sts 2 by 2 = 6-6-7-7 sts remain. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Work left mitten the same way but inc for thumb on each side of next to last st on round.
