Needles: US #2 [2.75mm] dpns or 32 in [80cm] circular (for magic loop); or size needed to obtain gauge.
Notions: stitch marker, tapestry needle, about 8 in [20 cm] waste yarn for each thumb.
Notes: Mitts are worked in the round from the cuff with an afterthought (forethought) thumb. Thumb stitches are worked in waste yarn and unraveled later to complete the thumbs. You may use either or both Tulip Charts, but note that if you mix the two charts as in the sample there will be one three-color row. The third color may optionally be worked later by duplicate stitch.
This pattern is an excellent stash buster. Note that one of the colors used in the sample is discontinued; Knitpicks Palette or any fingering weight wool yarn could be easily substituted.
