EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

-------------------------------------------------------

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. All stitches are worked in stocking stitch. NOTE: There are 2 different symbols used for the stitches worked in off white in the diagrams.

DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 64 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 8) = 8. 
In this example, decrease by knitting each 7th and 8th stitch together.

MITTENS - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles.

LEFT MITTEN:
Cast on 64 stitches with double pointed needles size 2 mm and off white. Knit 1 round. Now work rib (knit 2, purl 2) until the piece measures 6 cm. Change to double pointed needles size 2.5 mm and work pattern A.1, AT THE SAME TIME as you decrease 8 stitches evenly on the first round in the diagram – read DECREASE TIP, = 56 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When you have worked as far as the 3 black squares in A.1 work A.2 (= thumb) over these 3 squares (the other stitches are worked in A.1 as before). Increase in A.2 as shown in the diagram. When you have increased 6 times (there are now 15 stitches on the thumb gusset) work 1 round without increasing (as shown in A.2), then place the 15 thumb-stitches on 1 thread. Cast on 3 new stitches behind the stitches on the thread = 56 stitches. Continue working according to A.1. When you have worked as far as the round with an arrow in A.1 insert a marker thread after stitches 1 and 28 in A.1. Then decrease on each side of the marker threads as follows (= 4 stitches decreased on round):
Decrease 1 stitch as follows before the marker thread: Knit 2 together.
Decrease 1 stitch as follows after the marker thread: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.
After all the decreases there are 10 stitches left on the round. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, pull tight and fasten well.

THUMB:
Place the 15 thumb-stitches back on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm. Knit up 9 stitches in the edge behind the thumb = 24 stitches. Continue in the round according to A.2. When you have worked as far as the arrow in A.2 insert a marker thread in the 11th stitch and the last stitch in A.2. Then decrease on each side of the stitches with marker threads as follows (= 4 stitches decreased on round):
Decrease 1 stitch as follows before the stitch with marker thread: Knit 2 together.
Decrease 1 stitch as follows after the stitch with marker thread: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1 and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
After all decreases there are 8 stitches left on needle. Cut the strand, pull it through the remaining stitches, pull tight and fasten well.

RIGHT MITTEN:
Cast on and work as for left mitten, but work A.3 instead of A.1. When you have worked as far as the round with an arrow in A.3 insert marker threads after the 26th stitch and after the next-to-last stitch in A.3.

Ikke direkte spørsmål, men det var jo en jakke i dette mønsteret da det var oversikt over forslag til mønstre vi kunne stemme på. Er det noen som helst sjans for at jakkemønsteret dukker opp ila. høsten? Jeg forelsket meg totalt :)
