|Starting at the thumb and increasing the circle|
I started with a ribbing on the thumb, her pattern called for ribbing all of the way down the thumb, I only did 3 rows (just because) and then increasing evenly to enlarge the circle. I used a standard circle increase. Keep going on the circle until it fits around the palm of your hand. Then I joined the outer edges and used short rows to fill in by the pinky and the wrist. I finished off with ribbing at the top and the wrist. They look different because I played around with different methods of short rows and decreasing..
I used sock yarn (Lang Jawoll Magic superwash) and a size G hook. When I flew to NJ my sister picked me up at the airport and we went to a yarn shop (of course, yeeaaahhh) that she likes, The Stitching Bee in NJ a very nice shop with a wonderful sale bin. I am working on a pattern for the mitts.
Here it is on my hand, I may make the thumb a little shorter but they are nice and toasty and I love the way they showcase the yarn.
