Size and Resizing
One size – palm width: 3.25” (8 cm), palm length: 4” (10 cm) approx. The stitch gauge is moderately tight, but the mitt itself is designed to be a loose fit (easy to glide on and off the hands). To make the mitts longer add more pattern repeat rounds. If you require a wider fit, cast on extra stitches as instructed in pattern.
