Notes
I’m making these slightly larger. My round tension is 32 which makes the mittens longer. Stitch tension is 30 so another repeat will make them the perfect size for me.

Leftover yarn from the villsau-cardigan

CO 60 sts
3 rounds twisted rib + 1 round k1tbl, k1
Used the leaf pattern turned perpendicular on the cuff - first and last two rounds using CC2, the rest with CC1.
Knit 4 rounds
Knit 1 round and increase 4 sts --> 64 sts
Starting with 6 pattern repeats + the thumb (2 sts on either side of that)
10 pairs of increases on the thumb, set aside 21, CO 7 behind the thumb --> 70 sts, 1 extra repeat
Started the decreases earlier, made the first on round 53, then 56 - 60 - 62 - 63. (4 rounds less from thumb to top, but 1 cm longer)

I ran out of my main yarn (I was certain that I had another ball but couldn’t even find scraps) but fortunately, I was able to dig out an old lace swatch made from the correct colour.

Picked up 64 stitches on the inside of the cuff using my MC. K 1 round, switched to CC1, k1 p1 rib and decreased 8 sts. Made the inside cuff about 1 cm longer than the stranded part.

Made some simple embroidery on the flowers using CC2.

MC: 36 + 5
CC1: 10 + 9 + 11
CC2: 6
