  • Crochet Fingerless Mittens

    Hats & Handwarmers for the Family

    I crocheted these Fingerless Mittens for a friend’s birthday. The colors reminded me of a new box of crayons and she loves lots of colors. I didn’t get this from pattern from a Leisure Arts book. But here is a Leisure Arts book that has a great pattern. It is Hat & Handwarmers for the Family. That you could modify to make it look like the one in the photo. Just crochet to cover the palm of the hand and if you don’t want to crochet the thumb then don’t that is your call.

    Fingerless Mittens - Crochet

    This is how I made my Fingerless Mittens:

    With a size H crochet hook I chained 28 stitches. (If H is too small or big you can go up or down a crochet hook size) I joined it in the round with a slip stitch. I made sure not to twist it. Use a place marker so you know where you joined in the round.

    Row 1: single crochet.

    Row 2: single crochet into the back stitch and repeat for 16 rounds.

    Increase rounds: crochet two single stitches into the stitch before your place marker and into the stitch on the other side of the place marker. Your next round is a single crochet into the black stitch. Continue these two rows four more times until you have 38 stitches.

    Thumb and palm: crochet until 4 stitches before the place marker and chain 3 count four stitches past and crochet. Use a place marker in the second chain so you can keep up were you joined it in the round. You should have skipped a total of 9 stitches. (The last stitch before the chain I did a single crochet through the whole stitch and also a whole stitch when joining the thumb hole. This makes it stronger.) Then single crochet into the back stitch for 8 rounds.

    Fingerless mittens are a great gift idea for birthdays, Christmas, or just because you want to do something for someone special.

     

  • Texting Mitts

     

    I know that it is spring and almost summer but I wanted to practice my new found Knooking skills. I flipped through the booklet in the Knook Beginner Set for Kids and decided I would try to make a pair of fingerless mittens. In the book, the fingerless mittens are called Texting Mitts. Since it is a pattern for kids, and the instructions said to chain 14 and pick up 13 stitches, I added 4 more making it 18 stitches and picked up 17 stitches. Doing this made it longer because it goes down your arm not around. I Knooked until it wrapped around and touched but I didn't pull it too tightly. I also made sure when I started to leave a tail and also a tail when I was finished for sewing the seam. If you need any help with Knooking there are videos to help.

    I used Paton's  Classic Wool worsted; it will be slightly scratchy until it is washed by hand and laid flat to dry. Next time I think I will add 4 more stitches to make it even longer. Fingerless mittens are quick and easy to Knook, crochet, and knit. They also make wonderful gifts for yarn worthy friends or family.
