Short Wave Mitts (DK Version)

I knitted this DK version of the Short Wave Mitts to match a cowl I had made earlier - pinching the idea of inversing the colours from another knitter on Ravelry.

  • a total about 45 grams of DK weight yarn  (in two colours)
  • 4.5 mm dpns

Here are the modifications to the original pattern:

Thumb panel:
  • CO7 in MC
  • do increase (to widen thumb panel) in rows 16 and 26
  • do thumb increases in rows 32, 34, 36, 38 - move 11 sts to scrap yarn in row 40
  • do decrease (to narrow thumb panel) in row 47
  • BO thumb panel in row 58
Main Part:
  • Pick up 30 sts from side => 31 sts on needles
  • When first knitting a row down the side: k3 pm k8 pm k8pm k8 pm k4 (to mark the beginnings and endings of sections - the sections are 8 sts wide).
  • Knit MC rows in stockinette stitch (i.e. k on RS, p on WS)
  • There are only 4 down sections and 4 up sections
  • for thumb pick up 3 sts from above gusset
  • knit 4 rounds of garter stitch (i.e k 1 round, p 1 round) and BO
