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).
