Match both ends together. Ch 1, slst in each st and beginning chain like picture below. As a result, this joins the two ends. Then, turn the ribbing just made so that the slsts are on the inside of the piece. This is now considered the wrong side.

You will now turn your work so you will be working in the ends of the rows just worked like pictured below.

  1. Hi, I like the look of these mittens. I’m having a hard time with printing out the pattern. I’ve tried different ways of doing it but one line always gets cut in half horizontally (half on one page, half on the next) and one page is always blank. It’s frustrating.
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  2. Just hoping you can clarify for me, I think you may have the toddler mitten pattern a bit off, when you make the ribbed cuff it’s 18 rows, but then when you go into the hand part you say 16?? Also, I was wondering about the colour changes, do you cut between colour changes, or do you just string the other colour along under the stitches you’re doing? Thanks for your help.

  3. Love the pattern but wondering about the small childs size. You say repeat rows 8 to 11 but row 8 had the chain stitches in it. Is this a mistake or am I doing something wrong.

  4. Crystal – this mitten pattern was easy to follow and turned out beautiful! I made the Adult Med size for a girlfriend. Her son wanted to surprise his girlfriend with a hand made pair of mittens for her birthday. I used maroon and gold for colors since she attends the U of M – Go Gophers! She would like a hat to match. I’ll be searching Ralvery for the hat pattern.
    Thanks again for the pattern!

  5. I cant get round 9 right, I keep getting 30 st.
    “ch 1, sc in same and next 4, ch (7,7,9), skip 5 st and sc in each st across. Join (24, 28, 32)”
    Im doing size M adult. What am I doing wrong?

  6. For the small adult mitten:. Can someone help me understand how if there are 24 stitches in Round 9, there are still 24 stitches in Round 10 when Round 10 contains 2dctog two times (so 4 stitches get combined into 2 stitches)? I can’t understand this plus I’m still short 1 stitch if it should be 22 stitches instead. Help!

    Reply

  7. I am following the large child pattern. I don’t understand how round 11 ends in 22 stitches and round 12 is suppose to end with 18 stitches? I don’t see any decreases?
