WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE MITTENS ENGLISH
This pattern is in English
The mittens are worked i two-coloured double knit stitch and double knit ribbing in the round.
After the ribbing, increases are made and now the diagram is worked while at the same time working increases for the thumb. The stitches of the thumb are placed on a holder and the mitten and thumb are now worked separately and finished with decreases on the top.
Because of the double knit stitch technique, the mittens can be turned inside out and worn both ways. The mittens are thick and warm, and the fit is tight, but the double knit stitch is very stretchy.
Choice of size
The model has a tight fit. In order to choose the right size, measure the width and length of your hand. Pick the size closest to your measurements. If you are in between two sizes, I recommend going up a size.
If your hand is 9 cm wide and 18 cm high, you should choose a size XS with a circumference of 18 cm and a length of 18 cm without the ribbing.
