NFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on next round knit the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease as follows (start 3 stitches before marker): Knit 2 together, knit 2 (marker sits in middle of these 2 stitches), slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.
----------------------------------------------------------

MITTENS:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles.

RIGHT MITTEN:
Cast on 48-48 with double pointed needles size 3 mm and Karisma and knit 1 round. Then work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 6-7 cm. The next round is worked as follows: * Knit 2, purl 2 together, knit 2, purl 2 *, repeat from *-* 2 more times, knit 2, purl 2, knit 2, A.1 over the next 14 stitches, knit 2, purl 2 together = 50 stitches. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work the next round as follows: Knit 26-26 stitches (= the palm), A.2 (= 20 stitches) and knit 4 stitches. Continue the pattern in this way. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 13-14 cm increase 1 stitch on each side of the first stitch of the round for thumb – read INCREASE TIP above. Increase in this way on each side of the increased stitches every 2nd round, 4-5 more times = 60-62 stitches. Now place the 11-13 thumb-stitches on 1 thread. Continue in the round as before and cast on 1 new stitch behind the thumb on next round = 50-50 stitches. When mitten measures approx. 24-26 cm (you can try the mitten on; there are approx. 3-3 cm to finished length) insert 1 marker after the first stitch on round and 1 marker after 24-24 stitches. Now decrease 1 stitch on each side of both markers – read DECREASE TIP above. Decrease in this way every 2nd round a total of 3-3 times and then every round a total of 2-2 times - in addition, decrease 2 stitches over each cable = 24-24 stitches. Knit all stitches together 2 and 2 = 12-12 stitches. Knit the remaining stitches together 2 and 2 = 6 stitches. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well.

THUMB:
Place the 11-13 thumb stitches from the thread back on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm. In addition, knit up 4-3 stitches behind the thumb = 15-16 stitches. Work stocking stitch in the round until the thumb measures approx. 4½-5 cm (you can try the mitten on; there is now approx. ½ cm to finished length). Knit 2 rounds and knit all stitches together 2 and 2 on both rounds = 4-4 stitches left on needles. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well.

LEFT MITTEN:
Cast on and work as for right mitten, but increase to thumb on each side of the 22nd stitch on the round.
