Entwined Fingerless Mitts
Skill Level: Intermediate
These knit-look fingerless mitts are worked in the round, and crochet up much faster then you would think! These mitts feature a bold crochet cable on the front, with a surprise second cable on the thumb.
Crochet instructions are written for one size (Ladies size S/M), but the post stitches allow for lots of stretch. Mitts measure approximately 17.8 cm (7”) in circumference but will stretch to fit 19 cm (7½”), and they are 19 cm (7½”) long. Please note that measurements are approximate and will be affected by the gauge and the brand of yarn.
This crochet pattern calls for a 3.25 mm (D) crochet hook (or size needed to obtain gauge), stitch marker, yarn needle, 1½ balls of Drops Alpaca Mix 50 g (1.9 oz)/167 meters (183 yds) per ball in the colour Light Pearl Grey Mix (9020), and scraps of a contrasting colour.
The pattern is complete with detailed instructions and colour illustrations.
The mittens are worked in the round from the fingers up. Skills and techniques used are: sc, hdc, dc, front post double crochet, front post treble, front post 2 together, and back post 2 together.
