The fingering weight sideways mittens (FWSM) are progressing nicely. I've got the hand done, and am knitting up the plan for the thumb, hoping it works as I thought it would.
Using a 2.0mm circular needle, cast on 100 sts with a provisional cast on.
Row 1: k49, pm, k2, pm, k49
Row 2: sl1, k47, kfb, k2, kfb, k48
Row 3: sl1, k48, kfb, k2, kfb, k49
Row 4: sl1, k49, kfb, k2, kfb, k50
Row 5: sl1, k50, kfb, k2, kfb, k51...
... continue until you have 130 sts. You should have 16 rows.
Knit even for 26 rows.
Row 43: sl1, k61, k2tog, k2, ssk, k62
Row 44: sl1, k60, k2tog, k2, ssk, k61
Row 45: sl1, k59, k2tog, k2, ssk, k60
Row 46: sl1, k58, k2tog, k2, ssk, k59...
... continue until you are back to 100 sts.
Graft side of mitten closed. Transfer live stitches from provisional cast-on onto circular needle.
