Knitted in the round, Gridlock Mitts have thumb gussets and corrugated ribs. Instructions for left and right mitts are identical; the stripes above and below the thumb mean there is no pattern jog at the beginning of the round.

Written instructions for construction include the corrugated rib. The Gridlock colourwork pattern and thumb gusset are charted.

Tutorials are included for a Twisted German Cast-on as well as Lifted Increases.
