Materials Used:

  • DK weight yarn ( I used Audine Wools Halo DK weight, 216 metres – 100 grams, 50% – Alpaca, 30% Wool – Merino, 20% Manufactured Fibers - Nylon / Polyamide). 62 grams needed for this pattern (both mittens).
  • 4.0mm (US size G6) crochet hook.
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Stitch marker


Skill Level: Easy to Intermediate.

Size:

The pattern is written in one size (M) which will fit an average adult woman. You can size the mittens up or down by changing a yarn weight as well as using a different crochet hook.

Gauge:

7 stitches x 5,5 rows = 5cm (2 inches) in half double crochet

Pattern Notes:

  • Mittens are crocheted in the round.
  • They are worked from the top down.
  • Popcorns are only crocheted on the upper side of the mittens.
  • Ch2 at the beginning of each round (except for the Round 23 – 28) counts as the first hdc.
  • Join with a sl st. on top of the ch2 at the end of each round (except for the Round 23 – 28 and Round 7 of the Thumb).

st. - stitch
sl st. – slip stitch
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
