How are the crocheted mittens constructed?

This is a thumb-to-thumb mitten crochet pattern made flat. This uses a unique construction from the sewing world, but we are going to create it from crochet. We will work sideways, starting with half the thumb, then work the body of the mitten, then the other half of the thumb. The piece will then be folded and seamed to create the final mitten.

Special Crochet Stitches
Half Double Crochet In The Third Loop: What’s really cool about half double crochet is that there’s a third loop on the back of your stitch. If you work hdc into the third loop, you get a totally different, knit-like fabric.

For this pattern, we are going to be working in rows, which means we will work on the row below in the third loop on the front of our work. Need a visual? Watch the video tutorial of this stitch.

Puff Stitch: Yarn over and insert your hook into the stitch/space. Yarn over again and pull up a long loop. (Yarn over and insert your hook into the same stitch/space. Yarn over again and pull up a long loop) two more times (7 loops on the hook). Yarn over and pull through the first 6 loops, yarn over and pull through remaining loops.

Gauge
17 sts and 11 rows = 4" by 4" in half double crochet worked in the third loop, blocked.

How to Crochet A Gauge Swatch
Working a gauge swatch will let you know if you will have the correct sizing for this pattern. A gauge swatch helps you practice the stitches used in this project and improve your stitch work for a flawless look.
Are you struggling to match gauge? Check out the blog post on What is Crochet Gauge and How To Fix It

Gauge Swatch Instructions:
Row 1:
Ch 25, hdc in the 2nd ch from the hook and in the remaining across, turn.

Row 2: Ch 1 (does not count as a st), hdc in the third loop in each st across, turn. Repeat Row 2 until there are 16 rows. Measure your swatch and adjust as needed.

Finishing the Easy Crochet Mitten Pattern

Fold the mitten in half to prepare for seaming. The desired side should be facing out, make sure
you have the same side facing out for the second mitten.

For the smaller sizes, attach yarn to the bottom cuff edge.

Insert your hook through the flo of the first stitch closest to you, and then in the blo of the side farthest from you. Yarn over and sl st to join. Work up the side of the mitten, around the thumb, then up the side of the fingers and across the top. Keep your sl sts as even as possible.

Fasten off and weave in all ends. Enjoy cozy hands all season long.

How To Care For Your Crochet Mittens

Caring for your handmade crochet wool mittens is easy. Here are a few tips to keep them looking and feeling great:

1. Hand wash only – Wool is an incredibly delicate material and should not be machine-washed or put in the dryer, as this can cause it to shrink or become misshapen. It's best to hand wash your mittens with a mild wool wash and lukewarm water.

2. Dry flat – Lay your mittens flat on a clean towel, preferably in the sun or near an open window to help them dry faster without stretching out of shape.

3. Handle gently – When putting them on or taking them off, try not to stretch the fabric too much. This can cause the wool to lose its shape or become misshapen.

4. Store properly – When not in use, store your mittens in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. If possible, keep them flat so that they don't get crumpled up.

Following these tips will help ensure that your handmade crochet wool mittens last for years to come. Enjoy your new mittens! 🙂
