Children’s Textured Mitts – A free crochet pattern

Every February it seems I have the same problem! Lost mittens!

It started around mid-January, right after the kids return to school from Christmas Break. And it’s nearly impossible to find them in stores. I’m not sure what happens to them, maybe the washer eats them or they are swallowed by the school’s lost and found pit.

Well, whatever the reason, I needed more. This is how the Textured mittens came to be!

I have developed four sizes, including a baby thumbless pair. They are made with the Loops and Threads Charisma Yarn (Bulky) and an 8mm Hook. They are quick to make up!

You’ll find the complete pattern for all sizes below. But if you would like to add them to your favourites or purchase an ad free version, you may do so here: RAVELRY or ETSY

Stitches and Abbreviations:

Ch – Chain

Hdc – Half double crochet

Knit Stitch (ks) – Also called the “waistcoat stitch,” the knit stitch is a single crochet worked through the middle of the single crochet or knit stitch of the previous round. Because you are working your stitch through the middle of the stitch in the previous round and pulling your loop up through the center, a knit look is created.

Knit Stitch 2 together (ks2tog) – Work the ks2tog as you would the sc2tog, but working through the space in the stitch of the previous round that you would typically work a knit stitch.

Rpt – Repeat

Sc – Single Crochet

Sk – Skip

Sl st – Slip stitch

Pattern Notes:

– Pattern is written in American English terms.

– Ch 1 at beg of rnd does not count as sc or hdc.

– Weave in ends as needed.

– I find the knit stitch works best when your tension is kept quite loose. Loose stitches allow for you to insert the hook in the proper space more easily.

– To work in the 3rd loop: In the hdc stitch, the “third loop” is found at the back of the stitch, below the top two loops that you would normally complete your stitch in. When you crochet in this back loop, it should push the top of the stitch from the previous round to the front of your work creating a sideways “knit” look.
