Basic Fingerless Mittens

Basic Fingerless Mittens
Author Julia V Introduction A pair of simple fingerless crochet mittens I worked up as a last minute Christmas gift. I wrote down the pattern because I really liked how they turned out and I didn't see anything like it around. They are worked in an Aran weight yarn on a 5mm (H) hook, so they work up rather quickly. Materials List Yarn: Multicolor mittens: Lana Grossa ‘Bingo Print’ (100% merino wool; 80m/87.5 yards - 50g): color 316, 2 balls. Blue mittens: Fonty Numéro 5 (100% wool; 85m/93 yards - 50g; color 217; 2 balls). Yarn Substitution: You need about 110 m (120 yards) of Aran weight yarn. Other yarns I recommend (this list keeps growing as I make more mittens myself): Rowan RYC Cashsoft Aran, Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran Hook: 5 mm (H) Finished Size One size fits most adult women. Gauge 18 sts / 14 rows sc tbl Notes The mittens are worked in a spiral without joining rounds. Skills needed: crochet in the round, sc through the back loop, foundation sc (explained in this great blog tutorial).

obsessive crafting disorder: Seed stitch mittens: a pattern I wanted to make some mittens in seed stitch to go with my hat made with the Autumn pattern by Jane Richmond. Nothing I could find was catching my eye, so, with necessity as the mother of invention, I decided, what the heck, I would write my own pattern! This pattern is for one pair of seed stitch mittens. The smaller size is a woman's, the large are made to fit men. To modify size larger or smaller from here, you need to cast on with +/- 6 stitches to maintain both the 2-1 ribbing and to have an odd number of stitches for the seed stitch. Alice-Inspired Mitts Author Ellie Thouret Introduction Knitting and so on: Circle Mitts These mitts form a circle shape around the thumb. They are knitted in five parts and can be adjusted to fit different hand sizes - their construction is similar to the Hexagon Mitts. The circle shape shows best when using variegated yarn.

Double Knit Mittens Last winter, when my hands were very, very cold, I spent a few weeks trolling Ravelry for a double knit mitten pattern that I liked. There weren't a whole lot, and the ones I found either assumed a knowledge of double knitting I didn't have yet, or used techniques (mostly for casting on) that I found needlessly complicated. So I did the easiest thing I could think of, teach myself how to double knit and write my own pattern. Yeah, it seemed easier to me at the time.

These fancy fingerless gloves are knitted in one piece (no yarn cutting involved) beginning at the thumb.

The Thumb Trick: Sometimes called an afterthought thumb, I first read about it in Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanac. I really like this method because it's seamless; sometimes when patterns have you place stitches on a holder and then cast on the top stitches you can get an odd seam right in the crease where your thumb meets the hand, and that can be uncomfortable. The only trouble that some people may have with this method is that you cannot immediately try on your mitten in progress, as you can with mittens where the stitches are put on holders.

They are crocheted around the thumb which allows you to show off your variegated yarn to the best effect. These mitts are the crochet version of my knitted Circle Mitts.
