Finished size

One size to fit average Men’s size or large Women’s size. If you need a larger size, try the next hook size up or a slightly heavier yarn. This hasn’t been tested, so yarn requirements are unknown.

  • A: Color #9592 Sage (approx. 90 yds)

Skill Level


Intermediate. Ordinarily, I would say that this pattern is pretty easy to accomplish. It’s all single crochet, but there are four different variations of single crochet used. A couple of testers did have a problem trying to wrap their heads around the finger separation but they were successful once I told them to just crochet exactly as indicated, without trying to figure out what was going on. So, in conclusion, if you will just crochet as indicated, without trying to figure it out in your head first, you will be fine.

Notes

Wrist Ribbing is worked first then stitches are picked up along the long edge in joined rounds. When working in rounds, it is very important that you count your stitches and that the first stitch is worked in the first stitch. Many times, I see crocheters inadvertently skip the first stitch then work into the slip stitch closing. This causes a shift in the stitches which will cause a pronounced diagonal seam. While there is nothing wrong with a diagonal seam, it may cause the finger spaces to be in the wrong place.

Small size hook is used for Wrist Ribbing. Large size hook is used for remainder.

I have called the mitts “First Mitt” and “Second Mitt”. If you are a right-handed crocheter, the First Mitt instructions will produce a right hand mitt. If you are a left-handed crocheter, the First Mitt instructions will produce a left hand mitt.

When working a row in back loops only, if your last stitch gets too loopy, work the last one under both loops.

Note: Once you finish the middle finger opening, the opening for the pointer finger remains. You don’t have to do anything. It’s right there and open, ready for you to apply the stitches below. When separating, you only need to create the stitches between the four fingers, for a total of three. There is nothing to create for the pointer finger. Just go forth and conquer.

Finishing

With needle, weave in all ends securely. While weaving in ends, you may want to also close up any gaps between the stitches that naturally occur during the stitching. You can close up any gaps, but don’t close them up so tightly that you don’t allow movement.
