Pattern: *Knit 1, purl 2* to end decreasing two stitches evenly (to 30 stitches). *Knit 1, purl 2* to end. Knit the next two rows.
Repeat this combo 3 times. Put 6 stitches on a stitch holder for the thumb. Continue in pattern, casting on 6 stitches at the of the of row. Repeat pattern 8 times. Knit 1 row. *Knit 2, knit 2 together* to end. Knit 1 row. *Knit 2 together* to end. Cast off (not bind off). Pull wool through inside. Put the stitches from the stitch holder to a needle and knit. Pick up 9 stitches evenly around the thumb hole (so 15 stitches in total). Knit 13 rows. *Knit 2 together* to end. Cast off (not bind off). Pull wool through inside. Tie off and tuck the ends inside.
Looks like a pretty color. Another great pair of mittens. :)
I do really think that I need to teach myself how to pearl. I got the knit part down just fine - but when you tell me that I have to do it backwards and thats all - that really messes me up, ha. Amazing mittens - great cause too.
