GAUGE

NOTES

Mitts are made in one piece from side to side. The foundation chain and last row are then joined to close.
Be sure to use a yarn with a bit of animal fiber in it, as Tunisian Double Crochet has the tendency to lean to one side a bit. This can be counteracted simply by blocking.
Because only a small number of loops are held on the hook at one time, a Tunisian Crochet Hook or standard crochet hook with an inline shaft can be used to work the mitts.
