Knitting left mitten:

Using smaller size knitting needles, cast on 32 sts. Join to knit in the round. I used the Bulgarian cast-on method, sometimes called the Estonian cast-on or the Latin cast-on. If you want to learn how to do it, check out the video tutorial.

Rounds 1-5: knit all stitches.

Switch to a larger size of knitting needles.

Rounds 6-25: knit all stitches. At this stage mitten measures 9 cm.

For both sizes, count 14 sts and place a stitch marker.

Round 26: k14, yo, k18.

Round 27: knit all stitches. Knit yo stitch through the back loop. (33 sts)

Round 28: k15, yo, k18.

Round 29: knit all stitches (34 sts).

Round 30: k16, yo, k18.

Round 31: knit all stitches (35 sts).

Round 32: k17, yo, k18.

Round 42: k22, yo, k18.

Round 43: knit all stitches (41 sts).

Add one more stitch if you are knitting larger-size mittens.

Round 44: K14, place the next 9 sts (10 for the larger size) on the scrap yarn, k18.

Round 45: knit all stitches. (32 sts)

Continue repeating Round 45 until the mitten covers the tip of your little finger. At this stage mitten measures 27 cm.

Shaping top of the mitten:

Round 1: [k1, k2tog, k10, skpo, k1] – repeat twice. (28 sts)

Round 2: knit all stitches.

Round 3: [k1, k2tog, k8, skpo, k1] – repeat twice. (24 sts)

Round 4: knit all stitches.

Round 5: [k1, k2tog, k6, skpo, k1] – repeat twice. (20 sts)

Round 6: [k1, k2tog, k4, skpo, k1] – repeat twice. (16 sts)

Round 7: [k1, k2tog, k2, skpo, k1] – repeat twice. (12 sts)

Round 8: [k1, k2tog, skpo, k1] – repeat twice. (8 sts)

Cut the yarn, leaving a 10 cm tail. Thread the tail through the remaining 8 stitches, pull it tight, and secure it on the inside.

Knitting gusset section:

Retrieve 9 stitches from the scrap yarn. Leave a tail before joining. Afterward, pick up five stitches (or four stitches for the larger size) around the gap by knitting into them.  Knit every round until the thumb reaches the tip of your thumb.

Begin with decreasing rounds.

Round 1: [k1, k2tog, k1, skpo, k1] – twice.

Round 2: [k2tog, k1, skpo] – twice. (6 sts)

Cut the yarn, leaving a 10 cm tail. Thread the tail through the remaining 6 stitches, pull it tight, and secure it on the inside.

If a gap appears in the thumb gusset, use the tail to sew it up.

Continue repeating the same steps as for the left mitten until Round 25.

For both sizes, count 2 stitches and place stitch marker.
