Experienced Tunisian Crochet Mittens

Experienced Tunisian Crochet Mittens

If you've been crocheting for awhile or are looking for a challenge, the Experienced Tunisian Crochet Mittens pattern is for you. Mittens are a necessity for winter, especially when you can crochet mittens yourself. However, this mittens pattern specifically uses the tunisian stitch, which can be a tricky one to learn at first. If you are really curious, though, I think it's definitely worth it. You really can't go wrong with a great pair of the best winter wearables that you can keep aroun all season long.

Notes

Directions are for size Small. Changes for sizes Medium, Large, and X-Large are in parentheses. Special Stitches Tks = Tunisian Knit Stitch. On forward pass: Insert hook, from front to back, between the 2 vertical bars of the next stitch, yarn over and draw loop through. Leave loop on hook. Inc = Increase. On forward pass: Before the next stitch, insert hook, from front to back, under the horizontal bar, yarn over and draw loop through. Leave loop on hook. Dec = Decrease. On return pass: Yarn over and draw through 3 loops on hook (1 loop of B and 2 loops of A). On the following forward pass: Insert hook through both stitches (at once), yarn over and draw through. Leave loop on hook. Notes 1. Each mitten is worked in Tunisian crochet worked in the round. 2. Tunisian crochet worked in the round is worked with a doubleended crochet hook and 2 strands of yarn. 3. Each round of Tunisian crochet worked in the round consists of two passes; a forward pass and a return pass. In the forward pass, the first strand of yarn is used to pick up and place stitches on the hook. In the return pass, the piece is turned, the stitches slid to the other end of the hook, and the 2nd strand of yarn is used to work off the stitches. 4. The first pass is always worked with the first strand of yarn, A, and with the Right Side facing. 5. The return pass is always worked with the 2nd strand of yarn, B, and the Wrong Side facing. 6. If you hold the hook in your right hand, you will work the forward pass, picking up loops, from right to left. And, you will work the return pass, working off loops, from left to right. If you hold the hook in your left hand, you will work the forward and return passes in the opposite directions. 7. To comfortably work in the round, each round is worked in small sections of about 10 stitches each. 10 stitches are picked up in a forward pass, then worked off in a return pass, and this process is repeated until all stitches of the round have been worked.

Hand Round 1 With A, Tks 2, yarn over, skip 11 (13, 13, 15) sts (for thumb opening), Tks 19 (23, 27, 31)22 (26, 30, 34) sts (counting the yarn over as one st). Take care when working the return pass to treat each yarn over as a st. How many yarn overs is required? If I skip 13 stitches that will make a very large thumb opening. Please help me with this, thanks.

Hi datrebor, For specific pattern help on this RedHeart project, I would suggest going straight to the source and contacting Red Heart's customer support center - I can only suggest what to do from my experiences, but as this isn't an AFC pattern, I can't say for certain. Good luck!
