Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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


= knit
= purl
= place 2 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, knit 2, knit 2 from cable needle
= knit 2 stitches in same stitch (i.e. knit 1 stitch in each loop)

Les explications ne sont pas claire, Comment réussir à obtenir 50 mailles, moi je n'y arrive pas.........au secours.

Bonjour Mme Loyer, en tricotant simplement ce tour où vous allez diminuer et augmenter: *2 mailles endroit, 2 mailles ensemble à l'envers (= 1 diminution), 2 mailles endroit, 2 mailles envers*, répétez de *-* encore 2 fois (= vous diminuez 3 m au total), 2 mailles endroit, 2 mailles envers, 2 mailles endroit, A.1 au-dessus des 14 mailles suivantes (= vous augmentez 6 m dans A.1), 2 mailles endroit, 2 mailles ensemble à l'envers (= vous diminuez 1 m) = vous aviez 48 m et diminuez 3 m, augmentez 6 m et diminuez 1 m soit 48 - 3 + 6 - 1 = 50 mailles. Bon tricot!

Bonjour Mme Serroul, après les côtes, tricotez le rang suivant comme indiqué: vous diminuez d'abord 3 fois 1 m, puis tricotez A.1 = vous augmentez 6 m (cf symbole rond noir) et diminuez ensuite 1 m soit: 48 m - 3 dim + 6 augm + 1 dim = 50 m. Bon tricot!

Hei! jeg holder på å strikke fra oppskriften deres og jeg trenger hjelp med å forstå den. Det står i tredje settning =50 masker, antar at det skal være tilsammen 50 masker i strikketøyet, men fram til det punktet har jeg tatt ut masker ved å strikke to masker sammen, og siden jeg startet med 48 masker er jeg ganske sikker at jeg ikke har 50 masker. Er det noe jeg har glemt eller gjort feil?

DROPS Design 16.11.2017 kl. 14:05:

Hei Lena. Du strikker A.1 over 14 masker, men husk at du skal strikke 2 masker rett i samme maske der det er en sort prikk i diagrammet. Så selv om du strikker A.1 over 14 masker økes det med 6 masker = 50 masker. God Fornøyelse!
