Notes: Soumak is worked top down starting with the Long-Tail Tubular Cast On method, and 1x1 rib is worked for the worked for the cuff before the colourwork pattern begins.
For the top of the mitt, additional stitches are cast on after the thumbhole opening and worked in the colourwork pattern, before finishing with a rib top and tubular cast off. The live stitches for the thumb are then picked up and worked in 1x1 Rib and finished the
same way as the top.
When washing and blocking, the mitts are slightly felted by hand to create a smoother appearance.
You can make these mitts smaller or larger by decreasing or increasing the size of the needle used.
