SPECIAL STITCHES

Star Stitch Ch3, insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, yrh and pull up loop, insert hook into 3rd ch from hook, yrh and pull up loop, skip st at base of beg ch-3, (insert hook in next st, yrh and pull up loop) 3 times, yrh, pull through all 6 loops on hook, ch1 to create centre of star, insert hook into centre of star, yrh and pull up loop, insert hook through last loop of previous star, yrh and pull up loop, insert hook in same space as last loop of previous star, yrh and pull up loop, (insert hook in next st, yrh and pull up loop) twice, yrh and pull through all 6 loops on hook, ch1 to create centre of star, repeat from *. When working in the Round, work last leg of last star into st at base of beg ch-3, ss to second ch of beg ch-3 to join.

The Chart overleaf shows Star Stitch worked in the round rather than in rows as in this pattern. The same method applies without the slip stitch to join the round.

NOTE

The Cuff and the main Mitt are made separately and sewn together.

TO MAKE UP

Fold each Mitt so that Row ends meet. Use the yarn tails to sew together the Row ends leaving Rows 8-11 open for a thumbhole. Weave in all ends.

With RS facing out align the cuff so that the centre of one long edge is in line with the seam of the mitt. Sew the central 30 sts of the cuff to Row 1 of the Mitt. Repeat with the other Mitt.

Overlap the rounded ends of the cuff so that the left is over the right side for one and the right is over the left side for the other. Place button in the centre of the Rounded end of the cuff and use Yarn B to sew button in place working through both sides of the cuff.
