Stitch patterns
- Ribbing in the round: *k1, p1*, repeat *¬-*. Two-colour brioche in the round:
- Round 1 (Off White): *k1, slip 1 yarn over (sl1yo)*, repeat *-* to end of round.
- Row 2 (Clay): *sl1yo

Left mitten

With the Off White yarn held double, cast on 28 sts and distribute them onto four double-pointed needles, 7 sts each. The beginning of the round is between needles I and IV at the mitten's outer edge. Work 1 round of ribbing. Then break one of the strands of yarn.

Begin two-colour brioche in the round on Off White row 1 of the chart: (keep repeating A-B on needles I and II and B-C on needles III and IV)

Row 1 (Off White): *k1, slip 1 yarn over (sl1yo)*, repeat *-* to end of round.

Row 1 (Clay): *sl1yo, brioche purl (brp = purl together the yo and the next st)*, repeat *-* to end of round.

Row 2 (Off White): *brioche knit (brk = knit together the yo and the next st), sl1yo*, repeat *-* to end of round.

Row 2 (Clay): *sl1yo, brp*, repeat *-* to end of round.

Continue in this manner, working each row with both Off White and Clay.

Begin the cable turns on the Clay row 5. Knit the sts on needles I and II. On needles III and IV work as follows: work 3 sts, slip 4 sts onto cable needle and hold in back (the slipped st and yo count as 1 st), work 4 sts from left needle, work the 4 sts from cable needle, work 3 sts.

Now work Off White row 6. Work from Clay row 6 to Off White row 12, then repeat the rows bracketed on the chart 5 more times. 6 cable turns in total.

Note: When the cuff measures 7 cm, begin increases for the thumb gusset on the next Off White round. Work until 2 sts remain on needle II. Work into the Off White st: k1, yo, k1, yo, k1. 4 sts increased on the gusset = 5 sts. Work 5 rounds even, alternating rounds of Clay and Off White. Repeat the increase at the same spot. 9 sts on the gusset. Continue until the gusset measures 6 cm (= 12 Off White rounds). Work to beginning of gusset. Leave the 9 gusset sts on hold on scrap yarn.

Cast on 1 st at the gusset and work until the mitten covers your forefinger.

Top decreases:

Needle I: Slip the knit st + yo knitwise, k2tog, pass the slipped st over, work to end of needle.

Needle II: Work until 4 sts remain, slip the knit st + yo knitwise, k1, pass the slipped st over. Move the st to the left-hand needle, pass the 2nd st over and work the last st.

Needle III: Work same way as on needle I.

Needle IV: Work same way as on needle II.

Work 3 rounds even, alternating rounds of Clay and Off White.

Repeat the decreases as established. 12 sts on the needles, 3 sts each. Work 1 round with Off White: knit together the knit sts and yos and purl the purl sts.

Break the yarn. Use a tapestry needle to thread it through the remaining sts. Pull tightly to close the hole and weave in.

Right mitten

Work B-C on needles I and II. Keep repeating A-B on needles III and IV. Work the thumb gusset at the first Off White st on needle III.

Thumb

Pick up the 9 sts on hold as well as 3 sts from the base of the thumb. Distribute these 12 sts onto three needles and work two-colour brioche in the round.

When the mitten covers half your thumbnail, finish on a Clay round and begin decreases. Work 1 round with Off White: knit together the knit sts and yos and purl the purl sts. Now k2tog through the back loop to end of round = 6 sts.

Break the yarn. Use a tapestry needle to thread it through the remaining sts. Pull tightly to close the hole and weave in.

Finishing

Lightly steam the mittens.
