I am making these little mitten christmas decorations to sell at the school "christmas shopping evening" I hope they sell!!!
here's the patten:
I use three double pointed needles: 3.25 mm and double knit yarn.
cast on 18 stitches
k1p1 rib for 6 rows
k8 kfb k1 kfb k to end
purl 1 row
K8 kfb k1 kfb k to end
slip first 7 stitches onto needle 1, next 8 onto needle 2, last 7 onto needle 1
on middle 8 stitches, join new yarn (I work from middle and outside of ball at same time) k 5 rounds as though you are making an i-cord, then k2tog accross, sew through 4 stitches and fasten off
go back to needle one, purl across, picking up and purling 2 stitches at thumb.
