Galway Bay Ribbed Handwarmer Mittens
Aran weight yarn
4sts = 1” over the ribbing pattern, when stretched as worn
Width: 7” all around, when stretched as worn
Instructions: Make 2 mittens the same
Cast on 32sts, leaving a tail to use for joining
1st Row: S1, k2, * p2, k2, repeat from *to last st, k1
2nd Row: S1, p2, * k2, p2, repeat from * to last st, k1
Repeat the last 2 rows until work measures 7”
It is easy to adjust the length here ~ by increasing or decreasing the number of rows.
Cast off in rib, leaving a tail to use for joining
Fold the handwarmer in half lengthways. Using the cast on tail, join the sides up to 2.5 inches. This is the bottom of the mitten. Using the cast off tail, join the sides for 2 inches for the top of the mitten. This should leave a 2.5 inch gap for the thumb.
Darn away ends
