These directions were decoded from a pair of mittens found in my possession after my grandmother Alice passed away. This fits an average sized woman’s hand. The size can be varied by changing needle sizes and/or yarn weights. You could also measure the potential wearers hand and add or decrease stitches based on your measurements. If the thumb needs to be adjusted, you can decrease or increase gusset rows.

This pattern is not going to tell you exactly how to knit every conceivable size mitten but it is hoped that it will give you a starting place to design your own mittens. - Enjoy, Nettie
