Instructables

Intro, Gauge, and Measurements!

Warning - You need to already know how to do at least Tunisian Simple Stitch both in the round and flat to work this project.

<Materials>

First step is to gather the needed materials. You'll need

1 (or 2) skeins Red Heart Soft Yarn (#4 acryllic)

Double ended crochet hook, size J (6mm)

Slip stitch markers

Locking stitch markers

Scissors

Yarn needles

Stitch holder that closes

<Gauge and Measurements>

Next, make a 4" x 4" square of Tunisian Simple Stitch flat and am 8" or 9" diameter ring x 4" tall of Tunisian Simple Stitch in the round. Both have to match in gauge for the project to be even throughout! Follow the directions in the video to get the necessary gauge and measurement numbers for your mitt. Do your calculations as explained. Now you're ready for Step 2 - Base to Round Split!

Step 1: Step 2: Base to Round Split

Work your chains, foundation round, and rounds as calculated or until you have enough rounds that you're happy. You need to plan for your Round Split to be worked 1 round higher than where you think you needed it because of how it's hinged at the bottom. Work the Round Split as explained in the video. On to Step 3 - Flat Rows to Flat Join to Finish!

These look like they'd be handy for bicycling, keeping your hands kinda warm while allowing your fingers and thumbs a lot of freedom....

Great idea! They can be used in all kinds of ways. I originally made these so I could crochet without the yarn getting caught in my regular fingerless gloves. :D
