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 INFO-1:
Replace first hdc on row with ch 2, finish row with 1 hdc in 2nd ch from beg of previous row.

CROCHET INFO-2:
Replace first dc on round with 3 ch and finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
Replace first sc on round with 1 ch and finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.

CROCHET DC TOG:
Work 1 dc, but wait with the last pull-through (= 2 sts on hook), work next dc, but when doing the last pull-through pull thread through all sts on hook = 1 dec dc.

CROCHET SC TOG:
Work 1 sc, but wait with the last pull-through, work next sc and pull thread through both sts on hook.
--------------------------------------------------------

MITTEN:
Crochet the cuffs first back and forth in rib-structure, then form a ring, pick up new sts round the ring and crochet the mitten in the round towards the fingertips.

CUFF:
Ch 14 with hook size 4 mm / G/6 with Alaska and work first row as follows: 1 hdc in 3rd ch from hook, 1 hdc in each of the next 11 ch = 13 hdc, turn piece. See CROCHET INFO-1. Continue with 1 hdc in each hdc but work each hdc in the back loop of st (in.e. not through the whole st) = rib-structure.
When piece measures 20-22 cm / 8"-8 3/4" make 2 buttonholes as follows: work 3 hdc, ch 2, skip 2 sts, 3 hdc, ch 2, skip 2 sts, 1 hdc in each of the last 3 sts, turn piece. Work 1 hdc in each hdc and 2 hdc in each ch space = 13 hdc, cut and fasten thread.
Insert a marker in the middle of the edge of cuff.

MITTEN:
Slip the cuff tog to a ring with the 2 rows on the side with buttonholes sitting over the 2 rows the opposite side = buttonhole split. See CROCHET INFO-2. Beg by marker and crochet alternately 1 and 2 sc in each row all the way round – NOTE: by buttonhole split crochet through both layers = approx 30-33 sc. Continue with 1 dc in each st, AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts to 27-30 dc by crochet 2 dc tog with regular intervals – see above. AT THE SAME TIME after 3 rounds with dc inc 1 dc for thumb each side of first st on round - inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in the same st. Repeat the inc each side of this st on every round a total of 4-5 times = 35-40 dc on round (thumb sts = 9-11 dc). Work next round as follows: 1 sl st in each of the 6-7 first dc on beg of round, 3 ch (= 1 dc), then 1 dc in each of the next 25-28 dc, 1 ch and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 26-29 dc and 1 ch on round. On next round work 1 dc in each dc and 1 dc in ch at the end of round = 27-30 dc. Continue with dc in the round until mitten measures 17-20 cm / 6 3/4"-8" from cuff (3 cm / 1" remain, try mitten on for correct measurements).
Continue as follows:
ROUND 1: 1 dc in each dc AT THE SAME TIME work every 2nd and 3rd dc tog = 18-20 dc.
ROUND 2: work 2 dc tog around = 9-10 st.
ROUND 3: 1 sc in each dc AT THE SAME TIME work 2 sc tog around. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

THUMB:
Round 1: Crochet 1 sl st in the first of the 9-11 thumb sts, ch 3 (= 1 dc), then 1 dc in each of the 8-10 dc, then 6 dc in the edge behind thumb, AT THE SAME TIME work these 6 dc tog 2 by 2 – see above = 12-14 dc.
Round 2 + 3: 1 dc in each dc = 12-14 dc.
Approx 1 cm / 3/8'' now remain – try mitten on for right measurement, if needed work an extra round here.
NEXT ROUND: Work 2 dc tog around = 6-7 dc.
LAST ROUND: Work 2 dc tog around. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts, tighten and fasten.

Crochet the other mitten in the same way, but mirrored, i.e. make buttonhole split the opposite side and inc for thumb each side of the last st on round instead of the first. Sew on buttons.

Hi, I'm having troubles when starting the mitten. I've marked the midst of the edge of the cuff and I've joined the last stitch worked at the cuff with a stitch from the edge two rows before with a slip stitch. Now it says to begin by marker. Should I cut the thread orr I've made a mistake somewhere?

DROPS Design 23.03.2015 kl. 09:56:

Dear Mrs Atanasova, after the cuff has been made, you cut the thread and beg crocheting the mitten at the marker (when you work above buttonband, crochet through both layers). Happy crocheting!

Vanessa 30.07.2014 - 23:31:

Can u explain what is mean by "the edge behind the thumb" in round 1 of the thumb instructions?

DROPS Design 31.07.2014 kl. 10:05:

Dear Vanessa, the edge behind the thumb is the ch worked on the mitten when making hole for thumb. Happy crocheting!

Pam 01.12.2013 - 03:40:

I'm stumped by the last two rows of the mitten. It says to ROUND 2: work 2 dc tog across the round = 9-10 st. ROUND 3: 1 sc in each dc AT THE SAME TIME work 2 sc tog across the round. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten. It's the 'across' part I don't get. Does that mean to actually work both sides at the same time; across? Otherwise I would think it would say 'around.' Help!

DROPS Design 01.12.2013 kl. 21:20:

Dear Pam, on last round mitten, you will dec all the round working alls tog 2 by 2 around. Happy crocheting!

Sofia 30.10.2013 - 23:15:

Hej! Jag har problem med stickfastheten. 16 stolpar (st) blir 10 cm på bredden men inte på höjden? Redan efter 6 v mäter det 9,5 cm. Hur gör jag nu? Mindre virknål fubkar inte heller, då stämmer det inte på bredden.

DROPS Design 01.11.2013 kl. 09:12:

Om inte ½ nummer mindre virknål fungerar men du är nöjd med strukturen, så får du följa måttet i höjden enligt beskrivningen och det blir då inte lika många varv att virka.

Hei, mistä tämä mallivirkkauksen ohje löytyy? En löytänyt numerolla 126-22 tai X-362 mitään ohjeita sivuilta. Enkö vain osannut etsiä oikeasta paikasta vai mistä on kyse?

DROPS Design 24.09.2013 kl. 16:00:

Har kommet til tomlen og forstår ingenting. Noen som forstår problemet vi ikke forstår? Mine forvirrede tanker: - Man øker først 2m pr runde til enten 9 eller 11 flere masker som skal være tommel... altså.- Neste omgang hekler man... 1kjm i de første 6 eller 7 stavene, og så staver rundt... og så 1lm og 1kjm i 3.luftmaske.. Den 3.luftmaska er jo etter de 6-7 fastmaskene.... og da blir jo det området dratt sammen med 1lm som gjør tommelhullet rimelig trangt.

DROPS Design 15.11.2013 kl. 09:27:

Luftmasken er inden for tommelfingerkilen og der bør være masker nok til at de skal nå rundt om tommelfingeren. Hækl gerne en ekstra luftm hvis du føler at det er nødvendigt :)

Tonje 12.02.2013 - 14:34:

Jeg lurer veldig det med hekleinfo-1 helt på førsten; hvor man skal erstatte 1. halvstav med 2 lm.. vil det si at man skal starte første halvstav i maske nr 2. At man hopper over første maske pga luftmaskene?

DROPS Design 14.02.2013 kl. 11:44:

Nej, du skal bare begynde med at haekle 2 lm i stedet for 1 halvstav. Du starter med 2 lm da een halvstav ville traekke arbejdet skaevt.

Kyla 22.01.2013 - 07:25:

Hi I was wondering at what intervals should you dc2tog to keep the 30 stitches around the start of the mitten?

DROPS Design 22.01.2013 kl. 09:53:

Dear Kyla, if you got 33 sts on previous row, repeat 9 dc, 2 dc tog a total of 3 times = 30 sts. Happy crocheting!

Janne 10.12.2012 - 21:34:

Hei. Jeg lurer på om det er mulig å bruke denne oppskriften til toving bare jeg velger ett annet garn? Må jeg legge opp mange ekstra masker i såfall?

DROPS Design 11.12.2012 kl. 14:09:

Hvis du vil tove dette mönster, da skal du beregne mönster paa nyt og det antal masker du skal bruge. Se i vores tovingskole (Tips & Hjelp) og hekle först en pröve som du tover og kan se resultatet.

Audrey 10.11.2012 - 01:00:

Pour la mouffle, au départ ils dise de faire des bride, en meme temps de diminuer 27-30.... doit ton diminuer de 3 bride sur les 3 rang au total ou 3 bride sur chacun des 3 rang, en fait toute la section diminuer et augmenter est floue pour moi, merci de m'aider

DROPS Design 10.11.2012 kl. 09:31:

Bonjour Audrey, au 1er rang de la moufle, on a 30-33 ms environ. On continue ensuite en brides en répartissant des diminutions sur le 1er rang de brides pour avoir un total de 27-30 brides. On fait ainsi 3 rangs de brides au total puis on augmente. Bon crochet !
