Pattern for Knit/Crochet Mittens

Here is the pattern for crocheted mittens in English. Though I'm not so sure about the spelling :)

These easy made mittens are thick and warm so when the weather gets chilly you don’t have wear anything underneath them. Original mittens are made with unknown natural dyed yarns, but you can get the same gauge with any worsted weight yarn (needles 4-5 mm (US 6-8), 20 sts = 10 cm (4’’)).

Yarn thickness: worsted weight (approximately 200 m (218 yards) of yarn per 100g (3,53 ounces))
Yardage: 100 m (109 yards) in light pink, 100 m (109 yards) in moss green
Crochet hook: 4 mm (US G/6)
Double pointed needles: 4 mm (US 6)
Gauge: 19 sc = 10 cm (4’’)

Crochet all sc to back loop only and change color on every round.
Crochet pattern terms are in American English.

ch = chain stitch
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch

Crochet 40 ch with light pink and create a ring with 1 sc to first ch.
1st round: Crochet 1 sc in each ch = 40 sc / round. Change to moss green.
2nd round: Crochet 1 sc to every sc in previous round.
Repeat 2nd round until work measures 5 cm (2’’).

Opening for thumb: Crochet 3 sc in beginning of round, 4 ch, skip next 10 sc and continue with sc like before. On next round crochet 1 sc on each ch that were crocheted for thumb opening = 34 sc / round.

When work measures 14 cm (5,5’’) begin to decrease.
Decreasing:  *Crochet 1 sc, but don’t pull through last sts, then crochet next sc but when last pull through is made, pull yarn through all sts on crochet hook. Crochet 3 sc.* Repeat from *_* 25 times.

Cut the thread and weave it through back loops of every sc in the last round. Pull together and fasten off.

Crochet 10 sc to front edge of opening for thumb, 1 sc on each sides and 4 sc to upper edge = 16 sc / round.

When thumb measures 5 cm (2’’) begin to decrease.
Make decreases like before but without 3 sc. Repeat decreases 11 times.

Cut the thread and weave thread through back loops of every sc in the last round. Pull together and fasten off.

Pick up 40 sts around bottom edge of mitten on double pointed needles.
Knit *knit 1, purl 1* and repeat from *_* with moss green.
When rib measures 5 cm (2’’) bind off all sts.

Change to light pink and crochet sl st to every edge sts. Fasten off yarn.

Crochet the other mitten mirrored.
