Notes

I do not have a good track record with finishing mittens. I am hoping the name of this project will help change that.

Blogged here.

Modified these quite a bit, but love the stitch pattern! CO 26 with size 7’s, then switching to 8’s. Increased to 32 sts for hand. Shifted thumb 1 stitch palmward. Put 8 sts on holder for thumb. Picked up 6 for 14 thumb sts total. Knit to end of thumb and k2tog around, then closed. Knit to end of pinkie and then began decreasing 4 sts like for a sock toe. Decreased every other row twice, then every row 4x. Kitchenered 8 sts together.

Gauge on 8’s: 4 sts/inch, 6 rnds/inch
