  • Susan Bates® Knitting Needles: 4mm [US 6]
  • Stitch markers (2)
  • Stitch holders (2)
  • Yarn needle
  • Tape measure

    • GAUGE:
    • Gauge is not critical for this project.

    • SPECIAL STITCH:
    • kfb (Knit into front and back) = Knit next st but do not remove from needle, knit into back loop of same st and remove from needle.

    • NOTES:
    • Mitt is worked from wrist edge upwards, back and forth in rows.
    • Stitches are increased to shape thumb gusset then stitches are divided onto holders, leaving the thumb stitches to be worked separately. After thumb is complete, the held stitches are returned to the needles and the remainder of the hand is knit.
    • Side edges of mitt are sewn together to complete piece.
    • Scrubby measures about 4-1/2" [11.5 cm] across hand and 8-1/2" [21.5 cm] long, not including hanging loop.

    • DIRECTIONS:

    • Cuff
    • Beginning at wrist edge, with A, cast on 30 sts.
    • Work in Garter stitch (knit every row) until piece measures about 1-1/2" [4 cm] from beginning.

    • Lower Hand
    • Change to B.
    • Row 1 (right side): [K9, kfb] 3 times—33 sts.

    • Row 1 (right side): K15, place marker, kfb, k1, kfb, place marker, k15—35 sts (5 sts between markers).
    • Row 2: Knit, slipping markers as you come to them.
    • Row 3: Knit to first marker, slip marker, kfb, knit to 1 st before next marker, kfb, slip marker, knit to end of row—37 sts (7 sts between markers).
    • Rows 4–9: Repeat Rows 2 and 3 three times—43 sts (13 sts between markers).
    • Row 10: Knit, slipping markers as you come to them.
    • Row 11: K15 and place these sts on a holder, remove marker, k13, remove marker, place remaining 15 sts on a 2nd holder—13 sts remain on needle for thumb.

    • Work in Garter stitch over 13 thumb sts only for 10 rows.
    • Decrease Row: [K2tog] 3 times, k1, [k2tog] 3 times—7 sts.
    • Cut yarn, leaving a long tail for sewing. Weave tail through the seven thumb stitches remaining on needle and pull tight. Sew side edges of thumb together.

    • Upper Hand
    • With right side facing, return the 15 sts from holder before thumb (the sts that have already been knit) onto the right needle. Place the 15 sts from the 2nd holder onto the left needle.
    • With the left needle, pick up and k3 sts across base of thumb, knit the remaining 15 sts from left needle—33 sts.
    • Work in Garter stitch until B-colored section of piece measures about 6" [15 cm].
