Mitten Tutorial - Step 6

Step 6

Last instructions were to knit 16 rows of stockinette stitch for the body of the mitten.

Next you will begin decreasing for the mitten tip.

Decrease for mitten top:

1. (k6, k2tog) 4x – 28 sts
2. Knit
3. (k5, k2tog) 4x – 24 sts
4. Knit
5. (k4, k2tog) 4x – 20 sts
6. Knit
7. (k3, k2tog) 4x – 16 sts
8. Knit
9. (k2, k2tog) 4x – 12 sts
10. Purl 2tog across – 6 sts, break yarn, gather up.

This is the almost finished mitten that just needs seaming up.

And that's all for the LEFT mitten.

The RIGHT mitten is about the same, the only difference is the shaping of the thumb gusset.

For those of you who want to jump ahead, here are the instructions for the RIGHT mitten - no pics, yet. I'll be back with those pics as soon as I get to that point in my knitting.

Right Mitten:

Cast on 32 sts and rib for 22 rows

Knit 4 rows in St st Increasing by 1 on first row. 33 sts

Begin Right Thumb Gusset:

Row1: K29, PM, M1, Knit to end of round – 34 sts

Row 2: Purl to marker, M1, slip marker, p to end of row.

Rows 3-11: Repeat last 2 rows 4 times more.

Keep increasing every row until 44 total stitches.

Next Row: Purl 28 sts, (remove marker) turn and work the next 13 sts for thumb as in left mitten.

Mitten Body & Mitten Tip: Same as in left mitten.
