Mittens crochet pattern
Step-by-step crochet instructions
Make a foundation chain of 10 chain stitches and work one returning chain.
1st row (right side) - from the second chain stitch of your hook, work single crochet to the end of the row.
At the very end, make one returning chain and turn.
2nd row - from the second chain stitch of your hook, work back loop only single crochet to end.
At the very end, create one returning stitch and turn.
3 - 19 rows = 2nd row.
20th row - continue back loop single crochet to end (do not work the returning chain).
Connect both ends of the ribbing together.
Insert the hook into the first chain stitch of other end of the ribbing, grab the yarn, and pull it through both loops. Then insert your hook into the second stitch from the hook and into the second chain stitch of the other end of the ribbing, do yarn over, and pull it through 3 stitches. Repeat the process to end of the row.
To hide the seam, flip the ribbing to the wrong side (now it will be your right side).
1st round - work single crochet to end. By doing that, you should create 32 chain stitches in total.
Mark your starting point.
2nd round - work back loop single crochet for the first 7 stitches from the marker.
Bump - create two loops in two following stitches from the hook. After that, pull the yarn through the 1st loop, then through two loops, and again through two last loops resulting in one stitch remaining on the hook. Finally, insert your hook into the last base stitch, grab the yarn, and pull it through the stitch.
Continue back loop single crochet (BLSC) to end of the round and for two more rounds (3rd and 4th).
5th round - [work BLSC for 4 stitches (sts) from the marker and then shape the bump again] repeat that one more time. Continue BLSC to end of the round.
6th round - work BLSC to last 7sts.
Thumb point - create 7 new chain stitches. Insert the hook into the last st. of the round, grab the yarn, and pull it through the stitch lying on your hook.
7th round - work BLSC to end.
8th, 14th, and 20th rounds = 2nd round.
9th, 10th, 12th, 13th, 15th, 16th, 18th, & 19th rounds = 7th round.
11th and 17th rounds = 5th round.
21st round - decrease one stitch every 3 chain stitches. To reduce one st. , create two loops in two following chain stitches from the hook and pull the yarn through those 3 sts . Continue BLSC for 3 chain sts then do the decrease again. Repeat the process until the end of the round.
22nd round - reduce one st every 2 chain sts.
23rd round - decrease one st every 1 chain sts.
24th round - work the decrease without any intervals until one stitch remains.
Cut the yarn and secure it inside of the mitten.
Attach the yarn.
Work BLSC for 14 chain sts until you reach the desired length of the thumb.
Work the decrease without any intervals until one st. left.
Cut the yarn, insert it inside of the mitten, and secure it.
