You will need:
Worsted weight yarn, I used malabrigo worsted merino in vermillion and pearl
40"+ circular needles, US5 and US7

Rows 1-8 K1tbl, P1
Switch to larger needles

Repeat rows 9 and 10 until you have a total of 38 stitches.
Knit to desired length.
At beginning of next row, increase one stitch using M1R.
Knit one row.
Knit 9, pm, knit 10, pm, knit 9, pm, knit 10, pm.
Ssk, knit to marker, slip marker, repeat around, for a total of 4 decreases.
Knit next row
Repeat decrease row and knit row until you have 5 stitches, 6 stitches, 5 stitches, 6 stitches.
From then on, repeat decrease row every row until you have 1 stitch, 2 stitches, 1 stitch, 2 stitches.
Break yarn, and using a yarn needle thread the yarn through the remaining six stitches, and pull tight. Weave in ends.

Notes: I played with some colorwork with this mitten. For 5 rows I alternated red and grey, then I did a red row, then a grey row, then continued in red.
