The Woodruff mitten pattern is symmetrical for each hand — the only difference between Right and Left mitten is the placement of the “Afterthought Thumb” (see colored brackets in Woodruff Chart for placement of thumb stitches). If bobbles don’t suit your fancy, they can be easily omitted by substituting each Bobble symbol on the chart for a purl instead.

Mittens are worked in the round from the bottom up.
