Stitch patterns
Rib stitch in the round
All rounds: *K1, p1*

Left mitten

Cast on 54 sts and divide them onto four double pointed needles (dpns): 11 sts onto the first needle, 11 sts onto the second needle, 16 sts onto the third needle and 16 sts onto the fourth needle. The beginning of the round is between the fourth and first needle. Join to work in the round and work 3 cm in rib.

Start following the cable chart from row 1: K22 (first and second needle), work the 32 st pattern repeat once (third and fourth needle). Keeping the overall pattern correct, work rows 2-12 of the chart.

When the work measures 7 cm, start increasing for the thumb gusset:

Next round: K to last 4 sts on the second needle, PM, M1R, k2, M1L, PM, k2, work to end keeping the pattern correct.

Repeat these gusset increases on every third round for 5 more times. The sts count between the markers will increase by 2 on every increase round. After completing the gusset increases, work 1 round in pattern.

Next round: Work to the first M, remove M, slip 14 sts onto waste yarn, remove the second M, cast on 2 sts and work to end.

Keeping the pattern correct, work until you have repeated the chart rows 1-12 for four times. After that, work rows 1-10 (the work measures now about 20 cm).

Next round (row 11 of the chart): Keeping the pattern correct, work to the first st on the third needle, k2tog, work to the last 2 sts on the fourth needle, skp = 52 sts.

Keeping the overall pattern correct work rows 13-14 of the chart. You have now 11 sts on each needle.

Next, working in st st start decreasing for the mitten top:

Decrease round: First needle: k1, skp, k to end; second needle: k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1; third needle: k1, skp, k to end; fourth needle: k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1.

Repeat these decreases on every following round until you have 8 sts left. Cut yarn, thread through the stitches and pull tight. Weave in ends.

Thumb

Pick up the sts on hold onto three needles and pick up and knit 2 sts along the gap between thumb and index finger = 16 sts. Join to work in the round. Work in st st until the thumb measures 5 cm or until your thumb nail is covered up to halfway. Start decreasing for the thumb top:

Next round: On each needle, work to last 2 sts, k2tog.

Repeat these decreases on every following round until you have 4 sts left.

Next round: K1, pass the other sts over the knit stitch from left to right.

Cut yarn, pull tight and weave in ends.

Right mitten

Work as right mitten reversing the position of the thumb. The thumb hole will be worked in the beginning of the third needle.

Finishing

Steam block the mittens gently.
