Its that time of year again where you start searching for those warm mittens so your hands don’t freeze as you wait for you vehicle to warm up in the morning!

These mittens are perfect!  They are so warm, no questions asked.  The reason these are so warm is that you first crochet the mitten, then you add the surface stitches.  The combination of these two things make a very warm mitten that you will love!

Thanks to Lions Brand for providing the yarn for this pattern and for the beautiful color selection!

I have not made any photo/video tutorials to assist in this pattern but have several links that should help answer any questions.

Notes:
1. Unless otherwise indicated you will always Join with a sl st in the top of the first st worked
2. CH2/CH3 may or may not count as a st so you will want to pay attention
3. On rows you join you will have 28 sts, on rows where you don’t join you will only have 27 sts
4. When working the Mitten rows, you will want to make the mitten a little long as the Lattice sts will pull the mitten in causing it to shorten in length.
5. You will notice a pattern of diamond shape crisscross from the chain 1 spaces appear as you work your rows, this is where you will be working your Lattice Stitches

Cuff

Put ends together and sl st to form a closed circle, creating the cuff of the mitten. Flip your cuff so the sl st seam is on the WS

Finishing off:
F1. CH1, HDC in same as joining, *HDC in next CH sp, HDC in next st; repeat from * around. Join (28 sts)

F2. Counting joining loop as first loop, pull up a loop in every other st around, YO and pull through all 14 sts. Do not finish off your yarn. You will want to leave enough yarn to finish off. Rip out F2 so you can add in the Lattice surface sl st. Once you have finished the Lattice sts and secured all the ends you will rework F2 and this you will finish off and secure the end.

Lattice Surface Stitches
Notes:
1. All surface stitches and chain stitching was done with K/6.50mm hook
2. Child 5T was worked with a single strand of yarn
3. All other sizes were worked with 2 strands of yarn together
4. I started at the cuff of the mitten and worked my way towards the fingers
5. The hook hand will be outside the mitten while the yarn hand will be inside the mitten.

Child 5T- I recommend following one of these video tutorials by Naztazia or Marly Bird showing the process of weaving in a strip of ch sts. Reason for this is the mitten is quite small and working surfaces sts is difficult.

Child 7T, Medium and Large – Here is a tutorial by A Crocheted Simplicity showing how to work surface sts to achieve the lattice finish.  The process of alternating the colors is simply done by taking your time and ripping out when you make an error.

Sew in all the ends, I chose to use this method by Moogly Blog, I find that it is simple to do and keeps ends secure without all the knots.

Don’t forget to show a little love to those who spend so much time creating these tutorials by subscribing to their channel and following them.

Thumb:
Magic Circle
T1. CH1, work 6SC in magic circle. Join (6SC)

T2. CH1, HDC in same as joining, 2HDC in next st, *HDC in next st, 2HDC in next st; repeat around. Join (9 sts)

T3. CH1, HDC in each st around. Join (9 sts)

T4 – T7. Repeat T3 (for size 5T repeat through T6 then continue with T8)

T8. CH1, SC in same as joining, HDC in next, DC in next, 2MDC in next st, MDC in next st, 2MDC in next st, DC in next st, HDC in next st, SC in next st. Join

Attach your thumb by centering the 3rd MDC worked into the sp created when you did not join in M4. Working in the BLO whip st around. Finish off.

Now enjoy these amazingly warm and soft mittens!
