big stripes crochet mittens – free pattern!

this is my very first blog attempt and I’m not sure if anyone out there is going to read this 😀 if you do, would you mind leaving a comment? 

I’m a very impatient crocheter, so if any pattern looks too difficult to me I will give up because I just don’t have the patience to figure it out. It’s getting cold outside, so I was searching for a nice and EASY mitten pattern. I was not 100% satisfied with what I found on Pinterest and ravelry and….so I just whipped up a pair of mittens without following any pattern. This is how they look. I think they turned out nice!

What do you think? I like the clean look of the stripes. (I always like stripes). Follow this link to find the technique for these perfect color changes: klick here

And the colors make them interesting. 

The pattern is an easy one. My very first very own written pattern! Please let me know how it turned out for you! I would love to see what you do with it!

The mittens are worked from top to bottom.

What you need:

approx. 100g of yarn, hook, scissors, needle
I used an H hook and aacrylic yarn with 30% wool. 

start with 1st color and a magic circle

1. hdc 8 into magic circle.  ss to first hdc. pull tight.

2. ch 1, hdc 2 into each stich, join with ss to 1st hdc (16 stitches).

3. ch 1, *hdc, h c2 in one stich* around (24)

4. ch 1, hdc 16, join with ss (24)

5.-6.  repeat row 4

7. ss around in BLO (24)

change to 2nd color

8. ss around in BLO (24)

9. hdc around (24)

10.-14. repeat row 9 (24)

15. ss around in BLO

change to 3rd color

16. work in BLO! ss 4, ch 5, sk 3, ss 17, join

17. ch 1, hdc 26, join (26)

18.-21. repeat row 17 (26)

22.  ch1, *hdc2tog, hdc 3* around, join with ss (21)

change to 4th color

23. chain 2, dc around, join with ss (20)

24. ch 2, *fpdc, bpdc* around, join with ss

25. repeat row 24. 

cut the yarn, weave in the ends

join 4th color in the BL of any stich at the thumb hole, hdc 1st round in BLO. join. Then hdc in both loops (work in rounds) until you reach desired length. cut off. weave in. FINISHED!

Please excuse any imperfection, I’m a bloody pattern writer beginner 🙈

I will post another pattern for toddler mittens soon – stay tuned!
