How To Crochet Iris Stitch Finger-less Mitten Wrist Warmers


These mittens use a beautiful stitch called the Iris Stitch.

The Iris Stitch is a beautiful stitch to use but no previous knowledge is required on how to work it for this pattern.

I thought I would use this pretty stitch in another finger-less mitten design for you guys, so I do hope you like them.

You can watch a video tutorial on how to make them here as well.


Materials Required

- Chunky/Bulky weight yarn (yarn weight 5)
- 5.0 mm crochet hook
- Yarn needle and scissors

Stitch Library

ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sk = skip
ch sp = chain space
dc = double crochet

To fit average ladies hand size.

Increasing and decreasing the pattern
Work to 4 (+2) which means calculate a stitch count using the 4 times table for example 4 x 7 = 28 (4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4) then add 2 at the end of your calculation, in this case 28+2=30. So for a slightly smaller mitten you could start with a stitch count of 26 (which is 4x6+2=26) or a slightly larger mitten you could start with a stitch count of 34 (which is 4x8+2=34).
