This knitting pattern is in English. // Detta stickmönster är på engelska.
Simple and well-fitting mittens with a thumb gusset.
Named after my favourite house plant - pilea peperomioides.
Pilea mitts are worked in the round, seamlessly from the bottom up, in 3x1 ribbing.
The thumb gusset is created by symmetrical increases, worked in stockinette stitch, and finished with 1 x 1 ribbing.
Both mittens are worked in the same way.

Circumference: 15 (16) cm.
