Width approx. 20 cm (8 in) (measurement taken before thumb shaping)
Sorry everyone, there is an error with the Left Hand instructions in this pattern.
After the rib is worked on the left hand the following instructions need to be worked:
Work as for right hand mitten to end of rib patt.
Change to 4mm (US 6) needles and work 4 rows in st st and mock cable rib patt setting sts as folls:
Patt row 1 (RS): K20, P2, RC, P2, K2, P2, RC, P2, K4.
Patt row 2: K1, P3, (K2, P2) 3 times, K2, P19, K1.
Patt row 3: K20, P2, K2, P2, RC, P2, K2, P2, K4.
Patt row 4: K1, P3, (K2, P2) 3 times, K2, P19, K1.
These 4 rows set the sts for the st st and mock cable rib patt.
Work these 4 rows once more.
Cont to work mitten pattern from shape thumb.
I hope this helps,
