Easy Crocheted Fingerless Mittens
These mittens were made using leftover Lion Brand Homespun yarn and a Boye size K aluminum hook.
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each chain across. Ch 1, turn. (24 sc)
Rows 2 & 3: Using back loop only (BLO), sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. (24 sc)
Row 4: (BLO) sc in 17 sc, ch 3, skip next 3 sc, sc in BLO of next 4 sc. Ch 1, turn.
Row 5: (BLO) sc in next 4 sc, sc in next 3 ch, (BLO) sc in next 17 sc. Ch 1, turn. (Thumb opening made.)
Rows 6-17: (BLO) sc in each sc across. Ch1, turn.
Row 18: (BLO) sc in each sc across to last sc, sl st and finish off leaving a long tail of yarn.
Using a large eye need, thread the yarn onto the needle and sewing into the back loops only, sew the two long edges of the mitten together. Bind off.
(This is a very forgiving pattern. It can be made shorter or longer depending on how many stitches are put on the beginning chain. It can be made smaller for children by leaving off rows or made larger by adding rows… If you have a problem.. please let me know and I will correct the pattern.)
