The textured patterning is created with simply knits and purls in these warm mitts knit flat on 2 needles. To top of your mitts for a full mitten, stitches are picked up along the edges and worked in the round to the tip of the thumb and hand. Instructions are given in both the line-by-line written method and charts. You choose whichever method you prefer.
A tutorial complete with sequenced photos is included to walk you through the unique thumb gusset shaping.
