1. Drop the next three stitches until you reach the removable stitch marker.
2. Remove the stitch marker and insert the crochet hook into the stitch.
3. Pick up the next three strands of yarn and pull through the previous stitch, leaving the stitches on the crochet hook. (This is the same process as fixing a dropped stitch.)
4. Repeat step three until all dropped stitches have been picked up.
5. Place the final loop on the left hand needle and knit 1 into all three loops together.
1. Cut approximately 70 cm (28”) of your yarn and fold in half. Thread needle with the doubled yarn.
2. Insert the needle from the inside of the mitt to the outside close to the start of the second braid and pull yarn through, holding the loose end on the inside.
3. Insert the needle behind the first braid (or the last chain stitch worked) and back out on the other side and pull the yarn through.
4. Insert the needle back into the mitt (through the first hole you used) and out again a couple of stitches away. Pull the yarn through. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you reach the top of the first braid, trying to keep the stitches the same size as the braids.
5. Bring the yarn through the centre of the last braid. Put the needle around the last chain stitch and insert the needle back into the last braid.
6. Weave in the ends as normal.
Be careful not to pull the stitches tight.
1. Start by holding the yarn around your thumb and index finger. The ball end should be round the thumb and the yarn tail round the index finger.
2. Take the needle from the back of the hand under the yarn between your thumb and index finger and twist it through 180°.
3. Take the needle tip under the yarn on your thumb.
4. Next take the needle over, then under the yarn on your index finger.
5. Bring the needle back through the thumb loop.
6. Drop the yarn from your thumb and tighten the stitch.
7. Pick up the yarn with your thumb, but this time it should go round the opposite way.
8. Take the needle tip under the yarn on your thumb.
9. Next take the needle over, then under the yarn on your index finger.
10. Bring the needle back through the thumb loop, then drop the yarn from your thumb and tighten the stitch.
Pick up the yarn as in step 2 and work from step 3 to 10 repeating until you have the required number of stitches. The stitches should be arranged neatly in pairs.
Form a loop with the yarn, then slip it on to the needle and tighten. Repeat, or continue knitting as directed.
