Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
Crochet gauge: 14 sl st = approx. 10 cm in width

Crochet tips: Crochet sl st in the round without joining at end of row.

Ch 28 loosely (the chain should measure approx. 26 cm, or ch to desired length, your mitten will be approx. 5-6 cm smaller than chain) and join into a ring with 1 sl st in 1st ch.
Crochet 3 rows with sl st in the back loop of each ch/sl st = 28 sl st.
Continue to crochet sl st but now through both loops. When the piece measures 13 cm/5 1/8" make an opening for the thumb: ch 5 loosely at the start of row, skip over the next 5 sl st and continue with sl st as before (the opening for thumb should be approx. 4 cm/1½", if yours does not measure that, inc or dec the number of sts and skip over the same number of sts that you ch).
On the next row sl st in each of the ch 5 = 28 sl st.
Continue until piece measures 24 cm/9½", or to desired length (approx. 2 cm/3/4" remain to finished measurements).
Now dec by skipping over every other sl st around row = 14 sl st. Crochet 1 row without decs, then on the next row dec by skipping over every other sl st around row = 7 sl st.
Crochet another row with decs = 3 or 4 sl st remain.
Pull yarn through the remaining sts and pull tight, fasten neatly.

Thumb: Crochet 10 sl st round the opening for the thumb (1 sl st in each skipped sl st and 1 sl st in each crochet ch). Continue crochet sl st as before. When thumb measures 5 cm/2" (or desired length) dec. as follows: crochet sl st but skip every other sl st = 5 sl st remain.
Pull yarn through the remaining sts and pull tight, fasten neatly.

Where can I buy a Bosnian, or shepherds crochet hook? I am having a hard time using my regular hooks.

Dear Barbara, Bosnian crochet can be made with a regular crochet hook - as shown in the video below. Please contact your DROPS Store for any further assistance. Happy crocheting!

I think there is a mistake in this pattern for mittens. It says both in the english version and in norwegian to crochet in both loops. This is impossible! I am sure it should be in the back loop!!!

Dear Mrs Lindmark, we do Bosnian at the edge when working in back loops, but then the rest of the mitten is through both loops, as in the white section in the video below. Happy crocheting!

Går d å bruke en mindre heklenål og tynneregarn på denne oppskriften for at den skal passe et barn? Til strl 5-6 år hvilken nål bør jeg bruke da isåfall? Mvh

Hej Tina. Du kan hekle en pröve med det garn du hellere vil bruge og se hvad heklefastheden er og hvor stor vanten saa bliver.

Original pattern said 2 skeins, but then the pattern was corrected to 3 skeins, since some people told us they needed 3 skeins. We will go through and update all languages. Thank you.

Why does the finnish pattern for these mittens state that you need 100g Drops Eskimo and the US pattern says 150g? Which one is right?

Hei! Elsker denne oppskriften! Kjempeenkel og stilig :-) Tusen takk for flott oppskrift!

Hej Tanja. Det skal være nok med 1 nøgle pr vante. Men det kan være at du er nødt til at hækle på en tykkere nål. Er du helt sikker på at du har 14 kædemasker på 10 cm? Har du for mange m på 10 cm så skal du bruge en tykkere nål og har du for få m på 10 cm skal du bruge en tyndere nål. God fornøjelse!

Tanja 17.10.2007 - 14:13:

I denne opskrif står der, at man skal bruge 2 nøgler (det må jeg være 1 til hver vante), men da jeg gik igan med at hækle, havde jeg brugt 1 nøgle til ½ vante!! Måske det er en fejl, at det er km der skal hækles, men nu vil jeg prøve med fm, og håber at det hjælper.
