Crochet Toddler Mittens Ceyla - Free Pattern with Tutorial

Winter is coming soon! Keep the small hands warm with these cute mittens! The pattern can be used for toddler girls, but also for little boys using other color yarn! You can play with the colors, making the cuff in a different color as the rest of the mitten, or even alternate the colors for ribbing the cuff. Add some pretty appliques! Be creative! :)

If you'll use a smaller hook and finer yarn, the mittens will be smaller; for a larger size try a bigger hook.

Gauge: in single crochet stitches: 8 sc * 8 rows =  5cm*5cm

Materials:
- Caron Simply Soft yarn- (Yarn weight- Aran / 10 ply )
- 4,5 mm crochet hook
- tapestry needle to sew in the ends.



Measurements: See the graphic below!


Stitches, terms and abbreviations used:
ch:chain
sc: single crochet
sc blo: single crochet back loops only
sl st: slip stitch
Special stitch:
scinvdec: single crochet invisible decrease (See tutorial Invisible decrease by Moogly blog)

Notes:
The mittens are started by the cuff, working rows of sc blo back and fort. Folding the piece in half you will slip stitch the short rows together to form a tube. After this, the mittens are worked in rounds, starting at the edge of the ribbed cuff. (See the photo collage below)

Each round will begin with a ch1, that will not be counted as a stitch. End the rounds with slip stitch into the top of the first sc of the round, not in the beginning ch1.

The right hand and the left hand mittens are made the same way, only 1 round at the thumb opening it's different! (Round 8 in the pattern).

     
Pattern:
The cuff
Chain 11
Row 1: 1sc into back loop of the 2nd ch from hook and 1sc blo in each chain across. Chain 1, turn. (10 st)
Row 2-19: 1sc blo in each st across. Chain 1, turn. (10 st)
Row 20: 1sc blo in each st across. Do not ch1 anymore. (10 st)



Fold the piece in half to form a tube. Working through both loops of the stitches, slip stitch across. (10 st)

The joining looks better on the wrong side of the cuff, so turn your cuff inside out and continue working the hand!

The hand:
Round 1: ch1, work 20sc around the cuff (1 stitch in each row of the ribbed cuff = 1 stitch in each ridge and back ridge of the cuff). Join with sl st into first sc. (20 st)
 (See photo collage below)
Round 2: ch1, 1sc in each st around; sl st into first sc. (20 st)

Cut yarn leaving a long tail. Turn the mitten inside out. Pull the yarn tail on the wrong side of the mitten. Using the both loops of the stitches at the top of the mitten, slip stitch across.
Fasten off. Weave in the end.


The Thumb:
Round 1: On the right side of the mitten, join yarn at side of thumb opening. Make 10 sc around the thumb this way:
You will work 1sc in each of the 4 stitches let unworked, 1sc into each of the 2 chains made, and in each side of the thumb you will pick up 2 extra stitches. To not have holes in the sides, work the stitches using also the bars of the stitches from previous round.


Round 2-5: ch1, 1sc in each st around, sl st into first sc. (10 st)
Round 6: ch1. Starting with the same stitch, each 2 sc will be worked together using the invisible decrease: 1 scinvdec  * 5 times. (5 stitches left)

Cut yarn leaving a tail to sew the top of the thumb. Turn the mitten inside out, sew the top of the thumb.
You're done! :)
