Knitting the thumb gusset:

Round 17: Slip the next 12 stitches to the waste yarn (or stitch holder). Place a marker that will indicate the beginning of the round. K24.

Rounds 18-26: work rounds in stockinette stitch.

At this point my mitten measures 20 cm.

Change to smaller size knitting needles.

Rounds 27-30: [k1, p1] – repeat around.

Bind off all stitches. Use any cast-off technique you know. I recommend Tubular Cast Off. Cut the yarn, leaving 3-4 times the length to be cast off and thread onto the yarn needle. Place stitch markers into 1st and 2nd stitches. It will later help us to finish the tubular cast-off.

      1. Insert yarn needle into first stitch (knit st) knitwise, pull the yarn through and drop it of the needle.
      2. Skip the next purl stitch and insert the yarn needle purlwise into next knit stitch. Pull the yarn through.
      3. Insert yarn needle into new first stitch (purl st) purlwise, pull the yarn through and drop it of the needle.
      4. Insert yarn needle from back to front between new first and second stitches and right away insert yarn needle into second stitch (purl st) knitwise. Pull the yarn through.
      5. Repeat steps 1-4 around. For more instructions check the video tutorial.

Go back to the thumb:

Using smaller size knitting needles, pick up 12 stitches from the stitch holder and 3 more stitches around the gap. Attach yarn and work one round in stockinette stitch. Decrease one stitch to get in total an even number (14sts).

Rounds 2-5: [k1, p1] – repeat around.

Bind off using the tubular method. Weave in ends and repeat everything for the second mitten.
