INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

INCREASE TIP (applies to right/left mitten):
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next row work the yarn over twisted to avoid a hole.

DECREASE TIP:
Always decrease from the right side.
----------------------------------------------------------

MITTENS:
Both mittens are worked back and forth on the needle and sewn together to finish. The mittens are worked in the same way, irrespective of whether you are working the left or the right mitten.

BEER-MITTEN:
The piece is worked back and forth on the needle in one piece – see sketch.
Cast on 11-13 stitches with needle size 5.5 mm and medium grey. The piece is worked in GARTER STITCH – see description above. Row 1 = right side. Work 7 ridges with medium grey, 2 ridges with yellow, 2 ridges medium grey and then continue with yellow. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When the piece measures 13 cm cast on 17 stitches at the end of the next row from the right side = 28-30 stitches. When the piece measures 20 cm cast on 2 stitches at the end of the next row from the wrong side for a triangle (= bottom). Cast on 2 stitches at the end of each row from the wrong side a total of 5 times = 38-40 stitches. Work 2 rows. Then cast off 2 stitches at the beginning of each row from the right side. Cast off 2 stitches on each row from the right side a total of 5 times = 28-30 stitches. When the piece measures 34 cm cast off the first 17 stitches at the beginning of the next row from the wrong side = 11-13 stitches. Continue back and forth until the piece measures 39 cm. Work 2 ridges with medium grey, 2 ridges with yellow, then 7 ridges with medium grey. Loosely cast off.

ASSEMBLY:
See sketch. Sew A to A – sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so that the seam is flat and fold half inwards – see broken line. Sew B to B (= top of hand), C to C (= one side of the bottom), D to D (= other side of bottom) and E to E (= under the hand).

MITTEN:
The piece is worked back and forth on the needle and is sewn together to finish.
Cast on 27-29 stitches with needle size 5.5 mm and medium grey. The piece is worked in GARTER STITCH – see description above. Row 1 = right side. Work 7 ridges with medium grey, 2 ridges with yellow, 2 ridges with medium grey, then continue with yellow. When the piece measures 13 cm insert 1 marker thread in the 14th-15th stitch (= thumb gusset). THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE.
There are now 13-14 stitches on top of the mitten and 13-14 stitches underneath. Continue like this until the piece measures 3 cm from the marker thread.

Now increase to thumb gusset by increasing 1 stitch on each side of the stitch with the marker – read INCREASE TIP! Increase like this every 2nd row a total of 4 times = 35-37 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 6 cm. Place the 9 thumb-gusset stitches on 1 thread, continue back and forth and at the same time cast on 1 new stitch on the row over the stitches on the thread = 27-29 stitches. Continue working until the piece measures 15-16 cm from the marker thread (there is now approx. 3 cm left to finished length, you can try the mitten on and work to desired length if necessary). On the next row from the right side decrease 7-9 stitches evenly on row – read DECREASE TIP = 20 stitches. Decrease 4 stitches 1 time = 16 stitches, then knit all stitches together 2 and 2 a total of 2 times = 4 stitches on the needle. The piece now measures approx. 18-19 cm from the marker thread. Cut the strand and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. Sew the side seam in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so that the seam is flat.

THUMB:
Place the 9 stitches from the thread on needle size 5.5 mm and in addition knit up 1 stitch at the back of the thumb = 10 stitches. Work garter stitch with yellow. When the thumb measures approx. 6 cm knit all stitches together 2 and 2 = 5 stitches. Cut the strand and pull it through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well. Sew the side seam of the thumb in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so that the seam is flat.
