Happy third Advent!
I'm really enjoying this Christmas-KAL together with you! Today's challenge is the thumb gusset and the hand! The thumb gusset follows the Line of Life on the hand -which makes for an extra good fit. On the back of the hand there is a knot pattern. (Does it sound difficult? No worries, I've made a video for you, showing this technique!)
Important information about the thumb gusset: The Line of Life-thumb has a different construction than the more regular thumb gussets have. Instead of increasing on both sides of the gusset, every other row, you will now increase on every row, at the same place. The stitches added will become the hand -while the existing stitches are the ones that form the thumb. That's the difference between a "regular" thumb gusset and the Line of Life-thumb. Please note that the increase is made before you slip the marker on the left mitten and after you slip the marker on the right
