Two granny squares, made from purple and yellow worsted weight yarn are laying on a dark wooden surface. Behind them are the two cakes of yellow and purple worsted weight silk yarn.

Assembly

Take 2 of your squares and join them together along one side only.

Sandwich the squares together and join for 6 sts on the top and 4 sts bottom of the side, leaving a gap in the center for your thumb. 

The purple and yellow granny squares have been joined together and are being worn on someone's hand.

When you create the other mitten, make sure you join the opposite side together so your gloves won’t be the exact same! Gloves are sisters, not twins! 

Ribbing 


*See tutorial video in the notes above to get an idea of how this type of ribbing is created! 
Round 34: Slst at the seam of the glove and ch 7.
Round 35: SK the 1st ch and blosc into each ch down the line. At the end of the row, anchor your row by slst into the 3 SC of the main body of the glove.

Repeat rows 35 and 36 around the whole body of the glove rim.
