Yarn: Schachenmayr Fashion Nordic Dream (57% Viscose, 35% Wool, 8% Polyamide; 164 yards [150 meters]/50 grams); #00002 Natur Mélange - one skein (color A) & Malabrigo Worsted (100% Merino Wool; 210 yards [192 meters]/100 grams); #12 Very Berry – roughly 20 yards (color B)

Needles: One set of double pointed needles (dpns) in size US 8

Notions: Tapestry needle

Gauge: 16 stitches = 4 inches

Which brings us to the mitts! To begin, then, using your color A yarn, cast on 28 (32; 36) stitches loosely and distribute between 3 dpns as follows: 8 stitches on first needle, 12 stitches second needle, 8 stitches on third needle [(10; 12; 10); (12; 12; 12)]. Join in round. Then we'll move straight to our main pattern, as follows:
Rows 1 - 6: knit
Row 7: knit across first needle; k2, [k2tog, (yo) twice, ssk] twice, k2 from second needle; knit across third

Row 8: knit, working a (k1, p1) into each double yo

Knit rows 1 - 8 five times. Then we'll set up our thumb gusset, as follows:

Set-up Gusset Row 1: m1r, knit remainder of round
Set-up Gusset Row 2: knit
Knit set-up gusset rows 1 & 2. Then we'll begin our proper gusset rows, like so:
Gusset Row 1: knit until you have 8 (10; 12) stitches remaining on first needle, m1r; then, knit across remainder of first needle and second needle; finally, k8 (10; 12) from third needle, m1l, and knit until end of round (the first time you knit this row you won't have any left to knit after that m1l)
Gusset Row 2: knit
Knit gusset rows 1 & 2 five (six; seven) times. Now you should have 14 (17; 20) on your first needle and 13 (16; 19) stitches on your third. Knit across first 6 (7; 8) stitches from first needle and then transfer those stitches and final 5 (6; 7) stitches from third needle to a scrap of yarn to work later as thumb. Rejoin work in round and knit approximately 2" (2.5"; 3") in stockinette. Bind off loosely.
And now that the mitt part is done, it's time to work on the thumb! With that goal in mind, transfer the 11 (13; 15) stitches held for thumb back onto your needles, making sure not to place the needle break between dpns at the thumb break. Knit around, picking up one extra stitch at the thumb break. Knit around 4 (5; 5) more rows and bind off loosely. And now that your mitt is done, go ahead and use your color B yarn to cast on a 3-stitch i-cord. Work until cord measures roughly 23" and bind off loosely. Repeat for second mitt, tuck in ends, and, if desired, block! Oh, and lace and tie the i-cords as shown. :)
