Christmas Mitts Free Pattern

Hope you enjoy this pattern! These gloves are perfect for a number of things: opening presents on Christmas morning, sipping hot coco with a little peppermint schnapps stirred in, or taking a walk in the snow! They work up in just a couple of hours and are excellent for a last minute gift! The rib pattern is simple to make but exciting enough to make all of your friends marvel at your great skill.
Please do not copy this pattern. You may sell the mitts you make but please give me credit for the pattern. Thank you!

What you need:
35 grams of worsted weight yarn

US7 double pointed needles

Gauge: 5 stitches= 1 inch in stitch pattern

Note: These gloves are made with a very stretchy rib stitch. Mine are quite snug, but if you prefer yours to be looser, increase the stitches by 3 for a bigger glove.

Cast on 21 stitches and divide evenly between 3 dpns.
Rounds 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9: *knit 2, purl 1, repeat from *

Rounds 2, 4, 6, and 8: *knit 1, purl 2, repeat from *
After completing nine rounds, turn work so as to begin working flat, creating the thumb hole

Rounds 10-21: *knit 2, purl 1, repeat from *
Now rejoin in the round for rounds 22-28:

Rounds 22, 24, 26, and 28: *knit 1, purl 2, repeat from *
