INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. The whole pattern is worked in stocking stitch.
----------------------------------------------------------

LEFT MITTEN:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles.
Cast on 48 stitches with double pointed needles size 3 mm and red. Work rib (= knit 2 / purl 2) for 6 cm. Change to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and knit 1 round where you increase 4 stitches evenly on round (increase 1 stitch after every 12th stitch by making 1 yarn over, on the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes) = 52 stitches. Then work pattern according to diagram A.1 (= 52 stitches). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When you have worked as far as the 3 black squares in the diagram, work A.2 (= thumb) over these 3 stitches, the remaining stitches continue according to A.1. When A.2 has been completed, as far as and including round 13 (see arrow in diagram) and you have increased 5 times, place the 13 thumb-stitches on 1 thread. Cast on 3 new stitches behind the thumb stitches = 52 stitches. Continue to work according to A.1. After all the decreases there are 12 stitches left on needles. Cut the strands, pull them through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. The mitten measures approx. 27 cm.

THUMB: 
Place the 13 thumb stitches back on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm. Knit up 9 stitches behind the thumb = 22 stitches. Continue in the round according to A.2. Decrease with off white on each side of the 2 red stitches. After all decreases, there are 8 stitches left on the needles. Cut the strands, pull them through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well.

RIGHT MITTEN: 
Cast on and work as for left mitten, but in reverse. In other words, the first 23 stitches in A.1 are worked as shown in A.3 so that the thumb is on the opposite side.

Har jeg forstått det riktig at alle kastene i A. 2 skal strikkes i rød med unntak av 9. Omgang med naturhvit? Selvsagt skal jo diagrammet følges men med hvilken farge selve kastet skulle strikkes med ble jeg usikker på.. På forhånd takk.

Hei Tom Erik. Ja, det stemmer. Lag kastene med rødt omgang 1-8 , og med hvitt 9. omgang. God fornøyelse.
