Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Lion Brand®:
    Wool-Ease® Cranberry 1 (1, 1, 1) ball (A) or color of choice

    Crochet hook size H-8 (5 mm)

DIRECTIONS:

SIZE
Child 2 yrs (Child 3-7 yrs, Adult Medium, Adult Large)
Finished Circumference 5-1/2" (7", 8-1/2", 10")
Finished Length 6-1/2" (8", 10-1/2", 11-1/2")
Note: Pattern is written for smallest size with changes for larger sizes in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to desired size before beginning.

GAUGE
12 sc + 12 rows = 4" with A.
Be sure to check gauge.
When matching the gauge in a pattern, the project will be the size specified in the pattern and the supplies specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes fewer stitches and rows to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

STITCH EXPLANATION
sc2tog (sc 2 sts together)
(Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

1.
Cuff is worked first, back and forth in rows.
2. Body of mitten is worked from stitches picked up along one long edge of cuff.
3. Body of mitten is worked in rows to create an opening for thumb, then joined and worked in the round.
4. Thumb is worked in continuous rnds (spiral).

Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across.
Rep last row 1 (2, 3, 4) more times.

Note: Work now proceeds in joined rnds.
Joining Rnd (RS): Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across; join with sl st in first sc of this rnd.
Next 4 (6, 11, 12) Rnds: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st around; join with sl st in first sc.
Shape Top
Rnd 1:
Ch 1, turn, (sc in next 2 (4, 8, 5) sts, sc2tog) 4 (3, 2, 4) times, sc in each st to end of rnd; join with sl st in first sc – 12 (18, 24, 26) sts at the end of this rnd.
