  • These mitts are worked in the round from the bottom up. The thumb is shaped using an arched gusset.
  • The number of stitches in the Cable chart does not remain constant. It begins with 26 stitches, increases to 30 stitches after Rounds 4 and 10, then decreases back to 26 stitches after Rounds 6 and 12. Always count the chart section as 26 stitches, even if it is on a round where the number of stitches has temporarily increased.
