MITTEN:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 36-40 (44-52-56) sts on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm with denim blue. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 5-6 (7-8-9) cm. K 1 round and dec 12-8 (8-12-8) sts evenly = 24-32 (36-40-48) sts. Work in stocking st for 1 cm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION On next round beg inc for thumb gusset and inc 1 st on each side of 2nd st on round – READ INCREASE TIP (= 2 sts inc). Repeat inc on every 3rd round a total of 3-4 (5-6-7) times = 7-9 (11-13-15) thumb sts. When piece measures 8½-10 (11½-13-14½) cm in total, slip the 7-9 (11-13-15) thumb sts on 1 stitch holder. Cast on 1 new st behind sts on stitch holder = 24-32 (36-40-48) sts on needle. Then continue pattern in the round according to diagram A.1. When piece measures 13-16 (16-19-21) cm in total (approx. 2-2 (3-3-3) cm remain until finished measurements), insert 1 marker in each side so that there are 12-16 (18-20-24) sts both on top and inside mitten. Switch to light grey green and work in stocking st in the round. On next round dec 1 st on each side of both markers – READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec on every other round 2-1 (4-3-2) times in total and then on every round 2-5 (3-5-8) times in total = 8 sts remain on needle for all sizes. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. The entire mitten measures approx. 15-18 (19-22-24) cm.

THUMB:
Slip the 7-9 (11-13-15) sts from stitch holder over thumb gusset back on double pointed needles size 2.5 mm, knit in addition up 5 sts in the edge behind the thumb sts with light grey green = 12-14 (16-18-20) sts. Work stocking st in the round until thumb measures 2½-3 (3½-4-5) cm. Then K all sts tog 2 by 2 = 6-7 (8-9-10) sts. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Embroider eyes and mouth on mitten with black.
Work another mitten but reversed, i.e. when inc for thumb, inc on each side of next to last st on round (instead of on each side of 2nd st on round).

SOCK:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on (44-48-52) 52-56-56 (60-64-64) sts on double pointed needle size 2.5 mm with denim blue. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for (8-10-10) 12-14-14 (16-18-18) cm. Work next round as follows: K the first (25-29-29) 29-35-35 (35-39-39) sts and dec (8-8-8) 8-10-10 (10-10-10) sts evenly over these sts = (17-21-21) 21-25-25 (25-29-29) sts K, slip these sts on 1 stitch holder (= mid on top of foot). (19-19-23) 23-21-21 (25-25-25) sts remain on needle for heel. Then work pattern according to diagram A.2 back and forth over heel sts for (3-3½-4) 4-4½-4½ (5-5-5) cm. Insert 1 marker in the piece. Then work HEEL DECREASE – see explanation above. After heel decrease, pick up (8-9-10) 10-11-12 (13-13-13) sts on each side of heel and slip the (17-21-21) 21-25-25 (25-29-29) sts from the stitch holder back on needle = (44-50-52) 52-56-58 (64-68-68) sts. Insert 1 marker on each side of the (17-21-21) 21-25-25 (25-29-29) sts on top of foot. Then work pattern in the round as follows: Work 1st st after marker on top of foot in denim blue, work pattern according to diagram A.3 over the next (15-19-19) 19-23-23 (23-27-27) sts mid on top of foot – NOTE: St with arrow in diagram should fit with middle st on top of foot, work last st before next marker on top of foot in denim blue, then work A.2 between markers under foot – make sure patterns fits over heel. Continue pattern like this in the round over all sts and dec in each side as follows: K the last 2 sts before the (17-21-21) 21-25-25 (25-29-29) sts on top of foot twisted tog and K the first 2 sts after the (17-21-21) 21-25-25 (25-29-29) sts tog. Repeat dec every other round a total of (4-4-5) 5-7-5 (8-7-7) times = (36-42-42) 42-42-48 (48-54-54) sts. Continue to work until piece measures (7-8-9) 9-11-13 (14-16-18) cm from marker on heel (approx. (3-3-3) 4-4-4 (4-4-4) cm remain until finished measurements). Switch to light grey green and insert 1 marker in each side so that there are (18-21-21) 21-21-24 (24-27-27) sts both on top of foot and under foot. On next round dec 1 st on each side of both markers for toes – READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every other round (5-4-4) 7-6-5 (5-5-5) times in total and then every round a total of (1-3-3) 0-1-4 (4-5-5) times = (12-14-14) 14-14-12 (12-14-14) sts remain on needle. On next round K all sts tog 2 by 2. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.
