These simple mittens are worked in the round from the cuff up.

The thumb is ‘grown on’ by increasing around markers and then put on hold while the rest of the hand is worked.

After completing the hand, thumb stitches are returned to needles and worked in the round.

These mittens have long cuffs to keep your wrists cosy. If you are short on yarn, just make shorter cuffs!
