Notes: Chōcho mitts are worked from the cuff to the fingertips, and the thumb is picked up at the end using the afterthought thumb method. The chart is worked using the stranded colourwork method. Keep floats loose to maintain an elastic fabric. For floats longer than 3 stitches, twist yarns together on WS of work. Length can be added to hand after completion of chart.
