I’m trying to make the Oeuf Hug-Me sweater for my son for Christmas, but am stuck on how to make the pockets (shaped like mittens). I think it is probably too late to knit the pockets in, so I hope to knit the mitten halves and sew them on, but I can’t figure out what I need to do to get the rounded and flat mitten top.
What I have tried: cast on 25 stitches, St st for 2", then leave 18st on holder while I knit the thumb for another inch. Problem 1: how to shape the thumb?
Then continue St st for the body of the mitten for 2" more. Problem 2: how to shape the top of the mitten?
I have tried to convert regular mitten patterns but they are too pointy at the top.
Please help! Thank you.
