I love this oven mitt pattern. I'm also using some of the yarn that I hand dyed for the Housewarming Oven Mitts. When using up my stash of Knitpicks Wool of the Andes yarn, I don't have enough yarn to make a mitt in a single color, so I tried to make some interesting striping patterns to decrease my stash.
To calculate with the pattern this time, I made some notes on the rows between each step:
- Increases for the thumb begin at row 32.
- The thumb is tied off after row 51 (during the knitting of row 52)
- Decreases for the top start after row 72.
- There are 93 rounds total to this pattern. (After row 91, 12 sts remain).
