For the gusset, each row was increased by one or two stitches. (Usually 2) until I had 19 stitches. I knit the gusset stitches until I had finished one pattern repeat, then placed them on a strand of yarn. I joined in the round and knit one more repeat, then casted off. The thumb (not seen here- yet!) was knit with 22 stitches. These are supposed to be a holiday gift for a family member- but I want to give them to her now! It's o.k. to do that, right? :)

These fingerless mitts were knit out of Araucania's Atacama on US 3's. I used 4 repeats (48 stitches) of the Pomatomus pattern from Knitty.com for the mitts. After two repeats I started the thumb gusset and switched to the 'foot' chart. The palm was knit in 1x1 rib. Knit stitches were twisted.
