Crochet HookH/8 or 5 mm hook, I/9 or 5.5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

MATERIALS:

  • Red Heart Reflective: 2 (2) balls 8251 Neon Orange
  • Susan Bates Crochet Hooks: 5mm [H/8 US] and 5.5 mm [I/9 US]
  • Child's Size: Two 5/8" (15.9 mm) Buttons
  • Adult's Size: Two 1" (25 mm) Buttons
  • Stitch Markers
  • Yarn Needle

SIZE:
Directions are for size Child. Changes for size Adult are in parentheses.

Child's size measures 6" (15 cm) around x 7 1/2" (19 cm) long.
Adult's size measures 9" (23 cm) around x 12" (30.5 cm) long.

GAUGE:
With 5.5mm hook, 12 dc = 4" (10 cm); 9 rounds in pattern = 4" (10 cm)

NOTES:
1. Cuff is crocheted back and forth in rows. The short ends are joined together with a row of slip stitches, forming a ring.
2. Hand, Finger Cover, and Thumb are worked in joined rounds. Palm side of Hand has a buttoned opening.
3. When instructed to work around a stitch “2 rows below”, work in the indicated stitch in the row numbered 2 less than the row being worked. For example, if you are working Row 5, a stitch “2 rows below” would be in (5 – 2) = Row 3. Skip the corresponding stitch in the row into which you would usually work.
4. When working over Fpdtr just made, insert hook around only the indicated stitch and under the stitch previously made; do not catch the previously made Fpdtr in the new stitch.

Special Stitches:
dc/sctog = double crochet/single crochet decrease. Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all 3 loops.
dc2tog = [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops] 2 times, yarn over, draw through all loops on hook.
Fpdtr = front-post double treble crochet. Yarn over 3 times, insert hook from front to back and to front again around the vertical post of indicated stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] 4 times.
sc/dctog = single crochet/double crochet decrease. Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop (4 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through 2 loops (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all 3 loops.

Special Technique:
join with sc
= Place a slip knot on hook, insert hook in indicated stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over and draw through both loops on hook.

The Red Heart Reflective yarn look so fun to use and it seems to create a very distinctive looking finished piece! I have seen an afghan pattern using this particular yarn. I think it doesn't actually "reflect" but rather it has the white color in there that gives a real contrast to the other colors, therefore it appears that it is almost reflecting light. Neat idea,

I thoroughly enjoyed this pattern. I did find a redundancy on the finger cover. Rows 4 and 5 did not work, Five is the same as 3. I skipped to 6 after 3, and it worked perfectly. Also, this pattern is for a larger hand than mine. I will try it again with smaller hooks for myself. My husband, however is delighted.

It looks like they fixed the problem with the pattern. I am about half way thru making them and they are coming out just fine. I am making a pair for my grand daughter. She wanted one like this so she could keep her finger tips warm when not needing them open.

yes it seems the pattern gets wordy and asked you to do the impossible... I submitted a complaint on the 'contact us ' section' 1-2 days... we will see..

As anyone figured this pattern out yet? or do you know of any video tutorials available

I hope that someone gets an answer on figuring out the finger cover pattern soon...I don't know who to contact at Red Heart for pattern help...

This pattern makes my head hurt maybe a video tutorial would be more helpful? I was really looking forward to making these too ... how unfortunate.

Wonderful to know it's not just me... has anyone found a solution to this problem area?!!

having the same problem

I need some help with the finger cover for this mitt. Having trouble understanding the pattern

Has anyone else tried contacting RedHeart (its a pattern directly from their site)?
