These were knitted flat then the sides are sewn together, leavaing an opening for the thumb. If you want you can add a thumb gusset after you sew the side seam. I will include just a little bit on that too.
Step 1: Supplies
1 pair straight knitting needles, american size 4 or 5. I used size 5 on most of these mittens.
1 4 ounce ball of yarn, size 4. I used Deborah Norville's Everyday soft worsted and Vana's choice on some
1 cable needle or stitch holder (not pictured, but a double point needle is a good cable needle choice)
1 yarn needle
stitch guage - but any ruler or tape measure can be just as effective
