NOTES

There is a Chart on page 93 for the Front sec­tion of the Mit­tens. Each Square rep­re­sents a dc st or dc2­tog where di­rected. RS rows should be read from right to left, and WS rows from left to right. You can carry the un­used yarn on the WS, twist­ing the ends to­gether when you change colour to avoid holes in the fab­ric.

TO MAKE UP

With Front fac­ing, join Off White in the end of first row of Front. Ss evenly around edge of Mitten un­til you reach the other end of the first row.

Fas­ten off.

Turn Mitten over so that Back is fac­ing and re­peat ss in­struc­tions in Off White, this time work­ing through row ends of the Back as well as the ss just worked on the Front to join. With Front fac­ing again, join Rock into first ss on both sides. Ss through each Off White st around Mitten.

Fas­ten off.

Turn Mitten over so that Back is fac­ing and re­peat ss in­struc­tions in Rock, this time work­ing through Off White ss and pre­vi­ously worked Rock ss.

Re­peat this process to join the Thumb to­gether.

Cut a 40cm length of each yarn. Gently twist the lengths of each yarn to­gether. Wrap this

cord around the Mitten, at the top of the Cuff, so the ends hang down from the wrist (away from the Thumb). Sew this cord in through the twists of Pomegranate. Tie the ends of the yarns to­gether and trim to ap­prox 5cm in length.

Weave in ends and block to measurements.
