14 sts and 6.5 rows = 4”/10cm over Tunisian Double Crochet (Tdc) using size J/10 (6.0mm) crochet hook. Take Time to Check Gauge
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.
