Knit from the same yarn – Caron Simply Soft – as Killian’s long k2p2 mitts (FO#6 for 2011) and the blue k2p2 fingerless mitts (FO#7 for 2011) on US size 6 circular needle.
These mitts are for ladies’ hands, knit over 32 stitches. I began the thumb gusset on round 16 and cast the thumbs off on round 34. I kept knitting in k2p2 until the mitts were a total of 46 rounds “tall”, then cast off on round 47. I wove in the ends (one at the top, one at the bottom) and called ’em done. (Yep, the preceding description cut-n-pasted from the FO#7’s entry… ’cause they’re identical.)
