Bim is a happy mitt or mitten that is worked from the top down starting with a super-simple winding cast on (brief tutorial in pattern – longer here).
It knits up quickly in DK.

A thumb gusset makes for a good fit, and just for fun, knit a sprinkle of colourful intarsia squares (aka blobs).

If you hate intarsia, you can add colour with Duplicate Stitch (also known as Swiss Darning).

The pattern links to photo tutorials for both (intarsia, duplicate stitch)

Bim is knitted with the magic loop method. If preferred, you can of course knit on double point needles or two circulars.

Bim is much like simsala but differs by having a shorter thumb gusset, a differently decreased thumb, and intarsia detail. The cuff is longer and can be folded double. The striping in the mitt cuff alternates purled and knitted bands (simsala features a string of purls).

You can use one feature from bim and another from simsala. Simsalabim! You get both for €7.
