Mittens Pattern Notes:

  • Approximate Finished Size:9in long and approximately 9.5in around the cuff.
  • You can either start these mittens with an i-cord or a chain long enough to wrap around your wrist. If you begin with a chain, slst to create a circle and Sc in each Ch around before starting. I started with an i-cord of 32 stitches
  • The X’s and O’s is a repeat of 8 St so if you want to avoid gaps then begin with a chain that is divisible by 8. Otherwise you can make up any extra St with Dc. If you need more or less than 32 St, keep that in mind when looking at the St count.
  • Each round end with a Slst into the first stitch and each round begins with Ch 2 and the first St is worked into the same St the Slst is in.
  • Periods (.) indicate to work in the next stitch.
  • Stitch counts per row are shown in <brackets>.

Dc 2 around the Dc post from round 10. Dc into the top of the Dc from Round 10, it will have a st in it from round 11. Dc in between the Dc around the Ch from Round 11 (2 Dc around the Ch). Dc into the top of the Dc from Round 10, it will have a st in it from round 11. Dc 2 around the Dc from round 10. Dc into the top of the Dc from Round 9 that has a st in it from round 10. Dc in the last available Dc from Round 9. Finish with a slst into the first Dc. <14 sts>

Rounds 2-5: Dc in each st around <14 sts>

Finishing: Finish off with a long tail for sewing. Flip the mitten inside out after finding the stitches you need to sew together. Using your needle, sew the stitches together going in and out of the stitches all the way down to the other end and the back to make sure its secure. Tie off and sew in the ends to hide them.

Repeat these steps for the second Mitten.
