For these mitts, you'll start at the fingertips with a magic cast-on and work toward the thumb, leaving a hole for the wrist. Short-rows are used to give the hand a curved shape. Once the hand is complete, stitches are picked up around the hole and the cuff is worked downward from there.

Hand circumference:
5[5.75, 6.5, 7.25, 8, 8.75]in/13[15, 17, 19, 21, 23]cm

SPECIAL STITCHES
m1L = make 1 left = pick up bar between the st just worked and the next st by inserting left needle under it from front to back, knit into back of this new stitch
m1R = make 1 right = pick up bar between the st just worked and the next st by inserting left needle under it from back to front, knit this new stitch
