Hella Warm Mittens by Liz
I used either a 5.5 or 6.5 mm hook – sorry, both are red and I can’t remember lol
& Lion Brand Hometown USA super bulky (thickness 6) in aspen tweed
*always ss and ch 1 to join the end of a Rnd with the beginning and go on to next
Row 1 - Sc into back loop of second ch from hook, continue for total of 8 sc, ch 1 &
Rows 2-19 - continue making rows of 8 sc
Row 20 - align the foundation ch behind your row 19. Ss the back loop of first sc in
row 19 with the back loop of the foundation ch and form a sc. Repeat down the row
forming 8 sc and joining the cuff
Round 1 - sc 1 into end of each row for (20 sc)
Rnd 2&3 - sc 1 into each st (20 sc)
Rnd 4 - sc 9, 2 sc in next 2 st, sc 9 (22 sc )
Rnd 5&6 - sc 1 into each st (22 sc)
Rnd 7 - sc 9, 2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in each of next 2 st, 2 sc in next st, sc 9 for (24 sc)
Rnd 8 - sc 1 into each st (24 sc)
Rnd 9 - sc 9, 2sc in the next st, 1 sc in each of next 4 st, 2sc in next st, sc 9 for (26 sc)
Rnd 10 - sc 1 into each st (26 sc)
Rnd 11 - sc 9, 2sc in the next st, 1 sc in next 6 st, 2sc in next st, sc 9 for (28 sc)
Rnd 12 - sc 19, then ss to join with the 10th sc of this row to form the base of the
thumb (I did the ss to the base of the 10th sc and ch 1 before beginning round 2)
Rnd 2 - sc in each st (10sc)
Rnd 3 - sc 8, sc 2 tog (10 sc)
Rnd 4 - sc 7, sc 2 tog (9 sc)
Rnd 5 - sc 2 tog, sc 4, sc 2 tog (8 sc)
Fasten off - weave end through front loop of each remaining st and pull through the
hole to close it off
Finish rnd 12 on back of mitten (9 sc)
Rnd 13 - sc 9, pick up 4 st at thumb and sc, sc 9 for (22 sc)
*this part is a bit messy - idk what I was really picking up but I thought it looked
better than only picking up 1 or 2 and having holes. If your work is neater than
mine, you could pick up less at the thumb and increase in the next Rnd to get to 22
Rnd 14-19 - 22 sc
Rnd 20 - sc 9, sc 2 tog, sc 9, sc2tog (22 sc)
Rnd 21 - 20 sc
Rnd 22 - sc2tog x 10 (20 sc)
Rnd 23 - sc2tog x 5 (10 sc)
Fasten off and be warmed!
I made these mittens after a LOT of trial and error with these patterns,
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/comfy-cozy-mittens (this uses half
double crochet; I used single crochet)
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/crocheted-mittens---fingerless-gloveswomens (these are great; my pattern is similar up until the fingers!)
because I’m new and one of the first things I learned is not to finish a project if it’s
not looking right as you’re working. Go back and make it look like you want it to!
Not knocking on these patterns; they are awesome but I wanted them a little
different and I was using different yarn and hook sizes.
I did end up making the fingerless gloves, and highly recommend them! The fingers
are a little tricky, but not much harder than this pattern. I used the ideas from both
to make these mittens – and that’s the beauty of what I learned! You can easily
modify this pattern for different yarn/hook/hand sizes. Just go off the general
framework of this mitten and use trial and error:
Make a cuff (± 8 sc – you can also use ss)
Join the cuff and begin working the hand by working into the ends of the cuff rows.
Increase the number of stitches where you want the thumb to be.
When wide and tall enough, form the thumb as described above. Work a few rounds,
decrease number in last 1 or 2 rows and close off the hole.
Continue the hand part to be as tall as you want. If you want it to be very rounded,
wait until the last few rounds to start decreasing stitches. You could also make it
more of a rounded point by gradually decreasing.
