Chunky Mittens

It’s cold right? Maybe not when you are on the other side of the world, but at my end it’s bitterly cold. I stay home instead and bring you super easy and fast to make chunky mittens. This is one I dug up for you from the archives but revised them.

Keep warm xox

You need these stitches:

  • CH (chain)
  • DC (double crochet)
  • SC (single crochet
  • DC2TOG (double crochet two together)
  • Magic ring
  • SL (slip stitch)
1. Thumb Bit
2. Hand Top Bit
3. Putting it together

1. Thumb Bit (use a 4.5 mm hook)

Foundation ring:
Start with a magic ring, ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) dc 7 (total of 8 dc) into the ring

Row 1-4:
ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) dc 1 all around* repeat.

2. Hand Top Bit (use a 4.5 mm hook)

Foundation ring:
Start with a magic ring, ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) dc 7 (total of 8 dc) into the ring

Row 1:
ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) dc 1 in same ch, dc 2 in each ch around (total of 16 dc)

Row 2:
ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) dc 1 in same ch,* dc 1 in next ch, dc 2 in next ch* repeat

Row 3-10:
ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) dc 1 all around (swap colours after each row to form stripes)

3. Putting it together (use a 4.5 mm hook)

With a needle attach thumb and top bit using up 4 chains (4 stitches)

4. The rest
5. Ribbing Bit

4. And the rest (use a 4.5 mm hook)

Row 1-3:
ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) dc 1 all around

Row 4:
ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) dc until you reach the middle of the thumb bit then dc2tog 4 x dc until end

Row 5:
ch 3 (counts as 1 dc) dc until you reach the 2nd dc2tog, dc2tog 2 x dc until end. Bind off

5. Ribbing Bit (use a 4 mm hook)

Row 1:
ch 22, 1 sc in the back bit of the second ch from the hook, 1 sc into the remaining ch, turn.

Row 2:
ch 1 (this is a turning ch, doesn’t count as a stitch), 1 sc into each back bit ch.

Repeat row 2 until you have 12-14 ribs.

Attach the ribbing to the mitten using a sc.

Don’t forget to make a left and a right hand. A beginners mistake is to actually make two left hand mittens when you are right handed or two right hand mittens when you are left handed. It’s just a tip!

I used Plump DK from Mrs. Moon in Lemon Curd, Bubblegum, Fondant Fancy and Pavlova.
