Magic ring: ch 3=1 dc + 11 dc. Fasten round with sl st.
Ch 3=1 dc, *2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st* repeat from * to *, fasten r with sl st (18)
Ch 3=1 dc, *2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st* repeat from * to *, fasten r with sl st. (26).
Ch 3=1 dc, 1 dc in next 2 st. *2 in next st, 1 dc in next 3 st* repeat from * to *, fasten round with sl st. (33)
Ch 3=1 dc, 1 dc in next 2 st. *2 in next st, 1 dc in next 3 st* repeat from * to *, (41) in the end of the 5th round you make 1 extra dc in order to get 42 st. This is the last round that you increases, the tip looks small, but as you continue to crochet you will see that it is big enough.
6. to 14th round
Continue to crochet in rounds without increasing until you get the right size. Try it on your hand.
The mitten tends to move forward on your hand and becomes a bit big. I therefore made it a bit short before starting on the hole for the thumb.
This is a large lady mitten and has 14 rounds.
Chain 3=1 dc, 17 dc. Ch 10, skip 4 st. Continue with dc and fasten round with sl st. Crochet 2 more rounds, or as many as you need for your hand.
4. round after the thumb hole:
Ch 3=1 dc, 17 dc. Decrease 4 st like this:
*Skip 1 st, 1 dc in next*, repeat until you have decreased 4 st, continue with dc in each st, fasten round with sl st.
I made the ribbed cuff with tc in front and in the back of the stitches from the previous round. Klick on first picture for big version. English translation under the thumbnails.
- Chain 4=1tc, crochet the next tc in the back of the st from the previous round.
- Crochet next tc in front of the st from the previous round.
- *tc in back of st, tc in front of the st* repeat from * to*, fasten round with sl st.
In the next rounds make sure that you crochet the front post tc in the font post tc from the previous round, and the back post tc in the back post tc from the previous round. Start each round whit 4 chain stitches.
Start on the inside of the mitten – see picture and where I point my hook. Fasten yarn with sl st and chain 3=1 dc + 1 dc i the row that cross the thumb. Continue with 1 dc in each st, I got 19 dc in one round. Make as many rounds as you need to make it fit your thumb. I made 4 rounds.
5. r: Ch 3=1 dc, *skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next 2 dc* Repeat form * to *, fasten round with sl st.
6. r: Ch 3=1dc, *skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next st*. Repeat from * to *, fasten round with sl st. Cut the yarn, keep a long tail for tighten the tip of the thumb – se picture. Weave in end.
Follow the pattern for the right mitten until you start with the hole for the thumb.
Hole for left thumb
Chain 3=1 dc, 19 dc, ch 10, skip 4 stitches, continue with dc, fasten round with sl st. Crochet two more rounds, or as many as you need for your hand.
Chain 3=1 dc, 20 dc, decrease 4 st: *skip 1 st, 1 st in next st*, repeat form * to * until you have decreased 4 st, then 1 dc in each st, fasten round with sl st.
You make the left thumb just like the right, remember to start on the inside of the mitten.
To make sure the receiver has the washing-instruction: attach the paper-ribbon from the skein.
