Cast on 30 sts using the silver yarn and leave a 20cm long tail. Work the first row in rib stitch: knit one, purl one – repeat until the end of the row. Knit in rib stitch for 11 more rows.

Step 2

Switch to the mint yarn and knit in stocking stitch (knit one row, purl one row or K1, P1) for 6 rows. When knitting the first stitch, make sure to leave a 40cm long tail – you will use it at the end to sew up the seams.

Step 3

Increase row: knit 2, make 1 (M1: pick up the strand that runs between the 2 stitches with your left needle and use your right needle to knit this new stitch through the back loop), knit to the last 2 stitches, M1, K2. Next row: purl.

Step 4

Step 7

K2tog across the row, purl the next and finally k2tog across for one more row. You should have 8 sts left. Cut the yarn off, take the remaining stitches off the needle and use your tapestry needle to go through these stitches and create a loop. Weave in the end.

Step 8

Using your tapestry needle and the silver yarn tail, work in mattress stitch to sew up the seams: place the two seams side by side with the right sides up. Insert your tapestry needle under the horizontal bar between the first two stitches of the mitten.

Step 9
