Knitting in the round, working with two colors, reading a chart, decreasing, picking up stitches.

One size, adult medium.

Note: The chart repeat is too large to easily scale sizing up or down an inch or two. The best way to achieve a size other than what is listed is by changing the gauge. For example, to make a smaller with a 6” palm circumference, aim for a gauge of 32 stitches = 4” / 10 cm; for a larger mitten with an 8” circumference, use 24 stitches = 4” / 10cm as the target gauge.

Finished measurements
Palm circumference: 7” / 18cm.
