Medium Grey and white - Rib stitch in Contrast Color

This pattern is designed in the round, with a mitered top and a mitered afterthought thumb. It can be worked flat, using the edges of the pattern for seaming.
The pattern for the back and front of the thumb is the same, so it is listed only once above. Remember to use the Right thumb chart for the right mitten and the Left for the left! (I've had to rip back a couple of thumbs for this reason, and it makes me crazy!) The blue lines on the palm of the mitten body represent where to knit with scrap yarn for thumb placement.
If your mitten recipient has longer hands or thumbs than the chart indicates, repeat the existing graph to add length. If you need help modifying the pattern, please write, and I will send you a customized graph!
