This is the first pattern that I have published, and I would like to thank you all for your enthusiastic response to the pattern and also for your patience as a couple errors in the written instructions were found by a couple diligent knitters. (The pattern is current as of 11 Dec 2015.)

I have included written instructions, which are quite basic, but if you follow the charts the mittens just knit themselves. It is suggested that the knitter be familiar with knitting in the round, but otherwise no previous experience with knitting mittens is needed.

Needle 1 - the palm
Needle 2 - three side stitches
Needle 3 - the back of the hand
Needle 4 - three side stitches

I think it is best to knit the mitten with the above distribution of needles as it creates a crisp flat palm and a nice crisp back of the glove (with the moose scene).
