Mitten Tutorial - Step 2

Step 2 is easy, but first I have to clarify some questions.

We will be using the same size needles for knitting the whole mitten.

I also forgot to mention that due to the shaping of this gusset we will be making a left and a right mitten.

We are working on the LEFT mitten for now.

So on to Step 2

Knit 4 rows in Stockinette stitch, but INCREASE by 1 st in the first row.
you will now have 33 sts on the needle.

Update for "Here is an example on Maggie's Rags Site.

Thanks for asking this question Kittie!

I increased in the center. This is the section that one may knit more rows if they like longer mittens but since these are for children we will keep it at 4 rows.

See I told you Step 2 was easy!

Tomorrow Step 3.
