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). Related:  mittens

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. So, for future reference, and maybe to save someone else a few weeks of work, here it is. Eventually I will put up some in progress pics to illustrate techniques. Double Knit Mittens Sizes: adult medium Materials: Cascade 220—1 skein each in contrasting colours (colour A and colour B) Needles: 3.75 mm 32” or larger circular needle, or 1 set of 5 DPNs.

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. But if you want to you can just knit a few more rows and then pick up the stitches instead of waiting until the mitten is done, threading the waste yarn through them so you can try on your mittens as you knit. The trick: Knit to where you want to place the thumb hole, and take a length of contrasting yarn, and knit the thumbhole stitches with it instead of your working yarn: (see the working yarn, still on the right-hand side of the work?) Ta da!
