This pattern will fit most adults.

MATERIALS

2 - 50g balls of 4 ply knitting worsted.
(This is an estimate, I usually buy larger sizes,
so I am really not sure how much I used)

Hook - 4.50 mm. See Charts for conversions.

My notes, such as - where to make adusjments for other sizes, are in blue.




Courtney made a beautiful pair of these mittens for a friend. You can see the mittens she made on her blog. Thank you Courtney!


Abbreviations used:
st - stitch
ch - chain
ss - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
tr - treble crochet
beg - beginning
tog - together
dec - decrease
How To Make the Treble Crochet (tr) - Wrap yarn over the hook twice, insert hook into stitch, yarn over hook, pull up a loop, yarn over hook and pull through 2 loops on hook, yarn over hook and pull through the next 2 loops on hook, yarn over hook and pull through the last 2 loops on hook.

NOTE: This pattern is designed so the mitten will fit both left and right hands.
For a Variation, you can make these mittens in all single crochet instead of the pattern of 1 sc, 1tr. Just replace every occurence of the "tr" with a "sc".

CUFF - All stitches on the cuff are through the back loop of stitch only.
Ch. 14 to begin.
ROW 1 - 1 sc in 3rd ch from hook, 1 sc in next 11 chains, ch 1, turn. (12 sc)
ROW 2 - 1 sc in next 12 sc (remember, through the back loops of stitches only), ch 1, turn.
(12 sc) (If you are making larger mittens, add a couple more rows here - for smaller mittens, subtract a couple rows.)
ROWS 3 to 26 - Same as Row 2.
ROW 27 - Joining row, ss to corresponding chs in Row 1, turn inside out (this is the right side).

CONTINUE AS FOLLOWS FOR THE REST OF THE MITTEN (all sts through both loops):
ROW 1 - With right side of work towards you, ch 1, 1 sc in the end of each row of ribbing, ss to join, ch 1, turn. (27 sc, - this st count will be different on all rows if you are making smaller or larger mittens, example: if you added 2 more rows on the cuff for larger mittens, you will have more sc here - less if you are making smaller mittens.)
ROW 2 - *Over the next 6 sts, work 1 sc, 1 tr alternately. In next st increase by making 1 sc and 1 tr (note: these are made in the same st).* Repeat from * to * to the last 6 sts, work 1 sc, 1 tr alternately over these sts, ss to join, ch 1, turn. (30 sc) (30 sc)
ROW 3 - 1 sc in each of the 30 sts, ss to join, ch 1, turn.
ROW 4 - *1 sc in next sc, 1 tr in next sc*, Repeat from * to * to end of Row, ss to join, ch 1, turn.
ROW 5 - Repeat Row 3
ROW 6 - Repeat Row 4
ROW 7 - Repeat Row 3
ROW 8 - Repeat Row 4
ROW 9 - 1 sc in next st, ch 5, skip next 5 sts (this is for the thumb opening), 1 sc in the next 24 sts, ss to join, ch 1, turn. (make a smaller thumb opening for smaller mittens, larger thumb opening for larger mittens.)
ROW 10 - Repeat Row 4 (work the 5 chains for thumb opening as if they were regular sts)
ROW 11 - Repeat Row 3
ROW 12 - Repeat Row 4
ROWS 13 to 20 - Continue in pattern repeating Rows 3 and 4 alternately. (Add a few more rows for larger mittens, subtract rows for smaller mittens.)
ROW 21 - 1 sc in first st, decrease over the next 4 sts by crocheting 2 sc tog twice, 1 sc in next 11 sts, dec over next 4 sts by crocheting 2 sc tog twice, 1 sc in next 10 sts, ss to join, ch 1, turn. (26 sc)
ROW 22 - Work in pattern (1 sc, 1 tr) to end of row, ss to join, ch 1, turn.
ROW 23 - 1 sc in the first st, dec over next 4 sts by crocheting 2 sc tog twice, 1 sc in next 9 sts, dec over next 4 sts by crocheting 2 sc tog twice, 1 sc in next 8 sts, ss to join, ch 1, turn. (22 sc)
ROW 24 - Work in pattern (1 sc, 1 tr) to end of row, ss to join, ch 1, turn.
ROW 25 - 1 sc in first st, dec over next 4 sts by crocheting 2 sc tog twice, 1 sc in next 7 sts, dec over next 4 sts by crocheting 2 sc tog twice, 1 sc in next 6 sts, ss to join, ch 1, turn. (18 sc)
ROW 26 - Work in pattern (1 sc, 1 tr) to end of row, ss to join, ch 1, turn.

ROW 28 - 1 sc in first st, 1 tr in next st, * 2 sc tog, 1 tr in next st *, Repeat from * to * 3 more times, ss to join, ch1.
Cut yarn leaving about an 8 to 10 inch tail, pull yarn through the last ch1. Using a darning needle, weave yarn through the 14 sts of last Row, pull tight to close up the end of the mitten, weave in yarn to secure closing and fasten off.

THUMB
ROW 1 - Join yarn, ch 1 and 1 sc in the first st of thumb opening, 1 sc in the next 4 sts, pick up 7 sts around the remaining thumb opening, ss to join to first sc, ch 1, turn. (12 sc - more or less if you are making smaller or larger mittens.)
