I am so excited to share this pattern with you! This is my first time designing mittens. Designed using the herringbone single crochet stitch, these mittens are so wonderfully textured and thick, they will be warm and squishy on your hands. 

Pair these mitts up with the matching hat and scarf, and you’ll be cozy and fashionable this season!

Materials:

I used Lion Brand Scarfie, which is a 78% Acrylic/22% Wool #5 Bulky yarn. 

Any yarn of similar weight would work. 

Approximately 130 (135, 140) yds.

6.5mm Hook

Stitch Markers

Yarn Needle

Scissors

Measuring Tape

Abbreviations:

RS = Right Side

WS = Wrong Side

Sk = Skip

St = Stitch

Ss = Slip Stitch

Ch = Chain

Sc = Single Crochet

Hsc = Herringbone Single Crochet (see tutorial here)

Hsc2tog = Herringbone Single Crochet 2 Together (explained within the pattern)

Blo = Back Loop Only

Gauge Swatch:

16 hsc in blo x 10 rows = 4 ¼” H x 4 ¼” W

Notes:

Ch1 at the beginning of a row is never considered a stitch. 

This entire pattern will be worked in the back loop only, though the Hsc tutorial is shown using both top loops. 

For this pattern, we will only be using the herringbone single crochet (Hsc) and not the reverse herringbone single crochet (Rhsc).

Instructions

These mittens are made by working sideways in rows. We will be working from the wrist, up to the tips of the fingers, and then back down towards the wrist with each row. The cuff edge is left unfinished. All rows after row 1 are worked into the back loop only.  Remember that we do not do reverse herringbone single crochet  stitches. Only regular herringbone single crochet stitches. 

Make 2

With 6.5mm Hook (or the hook used to obtain gauge)

Your project should look similar to Figure 6 below. We will now slip stitch the side of the mitten closed. Begin by folding the mitt in half with the right sides together. We will be working our slip stitches through both loops of the last row.

  • Ss through both layers for the 1st 12 (13, 13) sts (see Figure 7). 
  • Ss through only the layer closest to you for the next 7 (8, 9) sts. Skip the 7 (8, 9) sts on the back layer (see Figure 8).
  • Ss through both layers for the last 14 (16, 17) sts (see Figure 9). Bind off.

  • Repeat rows 2 & 3 around the entire thumb hole, ending with a repeat of row 2. Bind off, leaving a long tail. 
  • Turn your mitt inside out so the right sides are together. Weave your tail through the ends of each row in the end of the thumb (see Figure 16). Pull tightly and knot to close. 
  • Use the same tail to whip stitch the side of the thumb closed (see Figure 17). Be sure to add a stitch or two to the bottom of the thumb to take care of any gaping (as seen in Figure 18). Knot securely.
