Valentine's Mitten - Free Pattern

A Valentine for all my friends and readers: Valentine's Mittens!

Materials: Size 5 needles
Cascade Yarns 220 Worsted Wool, one skein each red, and white

Makes women's size med/large mittens. For smaller or larger size, decrease or increase needle size respectively. Finished size 4.25 inches across, 8.5 inches long.
Cast on 52 sts needed. Please note - there is a white stripe up each edge of the mitten, so make sure to count those on the above chart. I admit, they are not super clearly marked.

On Round 20, (solid red above stripes) increase 1 stitch every 6 stitches 8 times, finish round.  60 Stitches.
This pattern is designed in the round, with an afterthought thumb. The front and back of each thumb are the same, so repeat the thumb chart twice. The grey lines on the palm of the mitten body represent where to knit with scrap yarn for thumb placement.
