Happy Thursday! Today, we’re working on a pair of lovely Tunisian Crochet mittens. I made these for a friend, along with a matching scarf (this will be next week’s tutorial and pattern).

You will need a little experience to crochet these mittens. You’ll need to be comfortable crocheting the following Tunisian stitches: Purl, Knit, Simple.

Let’s talk materials for a quick minute. I used a total of 3 skeins of Coboo Yarn, by Lion Brand Yarns. This is a #3, DK yarn, and each skein contains 232 yds (212 m) of yarn. It is a 50/50 cotton and Baboo rayon blend that is machine washable and dryable. You can easily find this yarn in most yarns stores in the US, or you can purchase it from JoAnn below:

As for the hooks, we’ll be using two different sizes. For the mittens, you’ll need a 3.5 mm Tunisian hook, and you’ll need a 5 mm hook for the scarf. Please note that you will need Tunisian hooks in order to fit all of the stitches on the hook. I used my Bamboo Afghan hooks for this project, but any Tunisian hook will do. You can find a set of bamboo hooks like the ones I used, below:

Materials:
Yarn: 2 skeins Coboo yarn by Lion Brand Yarn

If you are making the mittens/scarf combo, use the remaining yarn to complete the scarf. 

Hook: 3.5 mm Tunisian Hook

Additional materials: scissors and yarn needle. 

Notes: Begin every row on the second vertical stitch from your hook. 

There is a right and left hand mitten pattern. Please read the full pattern through before beginning the project, as the pattern for each mitten differs slightly in stitch order in order to make matching mittens.

Sizing: One size fits most adults. To make the mittens larger, use a 4.5 mm hook and work the same stitch counts.

Sewing Mitten Closed

Place stitch markers along the right and left sides of the mitten, on stitches: 5 and 15.

Fold the mitten in half, so the long sides meet, and sew along the top and side of the mitten until you reach the top stitch marker

Skip the stitches between the stitch markers (this is where the thumb opening goes), and stitch along the bottom 4 stitches of the mitten towards the wrist. 

Thumb 

This section is crocheted the same for both mittens.

Insert your hook into one of the stitches along the thumb hole (closer to the center, as the decreases will be worked at the bottom-most stitches of the thumb opening). 

Round 1: Single crochet (SC) into every stitch of the round. Once you work your way around to the first stitch of the round, place a stitch marker on the first stitch, then SC into that stitch to crochet in continuous rounds throughout the rest of this section.

Round 2: SC into every stitch of the round until you reach the bottom 3 stitches of the thumb hole (the stitches closest to the wrist). 

In the bottom three stitches: insert your hook into the first stitch and pull up a loop, then repeat with the remaining two stitches so that you have 4 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all 4 loops. 

SC into any remaining stitches until you reach your stitch marker. 

Round 3 & 4: SC into every stitch of the round. 

Round 5-15: SC into every stitch of the round until you reach the bottom 2 stitches. 

SC the bottom 2 stitches together: insert hook into first stitch and pull up a loop, then repeat in second stitch. Yarn over and pull through all three loops on your hook.  

SC into any remaining stitches until you reach your stitch marker. 

When you complete Row 15, cut a long tail end of yarn. You’ll use this yarn to sew the top of the Thumb closed. Weave in all remaining yarn tails. 

Wrist Cuff

Chain 15, then cast on into each of the stitches of the row. 

Complete a RP. 

Row 1: Crochet a PS into every stitch of the row. Complete a RP. 

Row 2: Crochet a KS into every stitch of the row. Complete a RP. 

Repeat Row 1 and 2 until you have completed 41 rows, then complete a Bind Off row.

Sew the wrist cuff closed and then sew it onto your mitten. Be sure to weave in any lose tail ends.
