Tired of struggling with holding hands while wearing gloves? The Smitten is the Glove for Two, which allows you to actually hold hands while your hands are snug and warm inside the smitten. A “must have” for couples and Valentine Love Birds. To Knit the Valentine Smitten a glove made for two you will need… Yarn: 50g Double Knitting Wool Needles: 4 double-ended needles sized – Metric 3mm, UK 11 and US 2 Finished Sized: 20cm from top of the smitten tot he bottom and 17cm wide. The Smitten Cuffs Cast on 44 stitches evenly on the 3 needles and rib (knit a stitch, purl a stitch) 20 rounds. Next Round: *K3, Inc in next stitch* to end Knit 4 rounds straight Next Round: Cast off the first 13 stitches, and knit the remaining stitches and leave on spare needles. (42 Stitches) Knit another cuff in the same way but do not put it onto spear needles instead continue as so… The Smitten Knit across the stitches on the spare needle so that the two cast on edges are together (84 Stitches) Divide the stitches across the 3 needles evenly so that there are 28 stitches on each needle. Knit 24 rounds straight. Decreasing the Smitten Next Round: sl1, k1, psso knit to last 2 stitches on that needle K2 tog – repeat on each of the 3 needles in the round. Next and every alternate round – Knit Repeat the decreasing rounds until there are 42 stitches remaining ending with a Knit round.

Sew wool ends in, and sew the cast on edges together and turn the smitten right sides out. The smitten is now ready for wearing. The smitten can also be worn alone as a muff. To keep your hands that are not inside the smitten warm you need to also knit a conventional pair of mittens or gloves.
