Crochet Along (1)

The end of January is drawing near, and hopefully you have all enjoyed working up this fresh new design as a way to really set the tone for a bright and happy 2017. The Wonderland Mittens’s vibrant colors and eye-catching wave stitch have both contributed to a fabulous start to another year of crocheting.  This final stage will show you how to crochet the thumb, and it also includes a printable version of the pattern along with a useful chart to consult.

Once you finish, these crochet mittens will reward those hard-working crochet fingers with soft warmth. Enjoy!

Charmed By Ewe Wonderland Mittens Crochet Pattern (2)

Don’t forget the different gauge for each section:

  • Gauge in HDC:  14 stitches and 11 rows = 4″ (10 cm)
  • Gauge in Wave Pattern: 8.5 stitches and 8 rows = 2″ (5 cm)
  • Gauge in Slip Stitch Cuff: 9 stitches and 12 rows = 2″ (5 cm)

I’m definitely a visual learner, which is why having a diagram is so handy. Plotting out the stitches alongside the pattern can help you picture the finished product, so Janaya included a useful chart here for you as well. If you need a closer look, just click on the image for a full-screen view.

Mitten Pattern Continued:

Child (5-10 Years) • Palm circumference = 6″ – 7.5″

Thumb – The thumb covering will be worked in short rows. Slip stitch to join in any stitch along the opening. Wherever you join will be the location of the seam, so I suggest joining at the top of the opening.

Row 1: Ch 11, working in the back bumps of the chain, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sl st in next 9 chs, sl st in same st as your join, sl st in next st of the thumb opening, turn (10). The last 2 sts of Row 1 are not included in the stitch count, do not work into them when you work back across for Row 2. Only work the 10 counted stitches.

For the remainder of the pattern, work in the Back Loops only.

Row 2: Work 10 sl sts to end of row, turn (10)

Row 3: Ch 1, sl st in 10 sts, sl st to join in the next st on the thumb opening, sl st in next st again, turn (10)

Row 4 – 13: Repeat Rows 4 and 5

Fasten off leaving a lengthy tail for seaming. Seam the edges of the first and last row together, and then close the tip in the same manner as the mitten top.
