How To Crochet Baby Scratch Mittens - Yarn Scrap Friday

Oh I do love designing anything for babies and what better than some adorable, and quite useful, scratch mittens! A perfect baby shower gift. This video was released on the 9th May and you can watch the video tutorial below if you like.

I'm seriously behind on some of the written versions of my Yarn Scrap Friday video tutorials but I hope you can forgive me! In time I will add all my blogged written patterns to my website as well so you can download them as PDFs for easier printing.



So what will you need for these cute mittens;

- DK / Light worsted weight yarn in two shades of blue or any colours really
- 3.5 mm crochet hook
- Yarn needle and scissors

LB = Light Blue
DB = Dark Blue

ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
dcfps = double crochet front post stitch - watch tutorial here: http://youtu.be/zVeBUZs3aRk
dcfps2tog = double crochet front post stitch two stitches together - watch video on how to do this

Row 1
Using LB and a 3.5mm crochet hook ch6, 2sc in 2nd st from hook, 1sc in next 3 sts, 2sc in last st - (7)

Row 2

  4. Could these be made using super bulky 6 yarn? I made a afghan and beanie and wanted to make mittens to match.

  6. I dont have a 3.5mm, the smallest i have (i apologize for poor grammar/punctuation/etc i am on a nook thats not cooperating) is a 5.5mm. What size should these measure in inches so i can adjust my chain amount? Or do you happen to know how many chains it would be for me?
