(Joining) Fold cuff in half bringing beginning row to ending row and line up sc stitches to first row of cuff.  Slip Stitch (ss) corresponding stitches together to form the cuff. Turn so seam is on the inside.  You are now working on the outside of mitten.    (change colors here if you wish)

BODY OF MITTEN: (You might want to place a stitch marker or piece of yarn, on the first stitch of the round, to keep track).

Rnd1: Make first sc of the mitten's body at the top of where you just joined the cuff.  Then continure to sc around the top of the cuff till you have 21 more, evenly spaced sc's.   (22 (26) sts around cuff)

Rnds 2-4   6: Sc in each sc around, join at end of each row with a sl st, ch 1 and turn for next row being sure to maintain 22 (26sts in each row.

Rnds 5, 7: 1 sc in first sc then ch 3.. Skip the next 3 sc and sc in 4th sc (this creates a hole where the mitten's thumb will be attached).  Continue on with your rnd to the end, join with a sl st, ch 1, turn. (19 sts and 3 ch sts in your row)

Rnds 6    8 : Sc in each sc and the 3 chain stitches all around, ss to join, ch 1, turn.  (You should now have 22 (26) sts again)

Rnds 7-14  18:  Sc in each sc around, maintaining 22 (26) sc on each row.  (Do not join, just crochet in the round)
