Sizes: kids, (womens, mens)

Gauge: 5 sts and 7 rows = 1 inch

Cast on 32 (36, 40) sts, place marker and join into a round. K2, p2 for 2”.
Begin knitting in stockinette stitch for 1.5” from beginning of ribbing.

Thumb shaping:
Rnd 1. K 2, increase in next stitch, place marker, k to last 3 sts of rnd, place marker, increase in next stitch, k2.

Rnd 2. Knit around plain.

Rnd 3. Knit to one stitch before increase marker, increase in next stitch, slip marker, work to second marker, slip marker, increase in next st, knit to end. 36(40, 44)sts

Rnd 4. Knit around plain.

On last plain round, knit around to last increase marker, remove marker, knit 3 sts, then begin bind off.

Bind off 14sts for all sizes, knit one more round and begin k2p2 for 2” or until mitt is as long as you like.

Bind off loosely in rib.

Use the tail to sew up the slight gap at the thumb join.
