For Christmas this year I made some mittens for someone very close to me! I used basketweave stitch and ribbing and also applied the ‘afterthought’ thumb technique (which I had also done previously).
I really enjoyed creating these as the wools were so soft! To learn how to do an afterthought thumb, which I now swear by, YouTube it and go to Kelly’s mitten classes as I found her videos extremely straightforward and helpful!
You will need to cast on a multiple of 8sts

Rows 6-10: *P4, K4, rep from * to the end
Rep rows 1-10 to form pattern.
