i'm trying to work this pattern to make mittens to match this hat i made w/o a pattern...



here's the link to the pattern:

http://www.innerchildcrochet.com/patterns/my_baby_mittens.html

First i had issues with the second part of the pattern (after you finish the cuff). I either miscounted my rows or am just stupid as i was having alot of trouble "evenly spacing 15 sc' around the top of the cuff. THEN it starts talking about "SC in join" after you've joined the first round and ch 1. do what now?? single crochet in the join, and then inc (increase)... huh?? this is why i end up winging any pattern i try to follow... but i can't do that with this pattern as i've never made anything like this before and have no idea how to figure it out.

Are there any free patterns out there with pic tutorials?? my keywork searches suck, so if anyone could at least help me out with some tips in that department i'd really appreciate it. This is going to be an xmas gift for a 3y/o cousin of mine so i'm kind of under time restraints... TIA!!

If it helps. In the first round after the cuff you have 15 stitches. The second round has 18. To fit in the added stitches, crochet where you joined the first row (+1), then in the next two stitches, put two single crochet stitches instead of the normal one (+2). This is called an increase.

No problem. I'm not an experienced crocheter but Dulcinea sent me some really good Learn to crochet instructions and I actually just finished a pair of gloves which started the exact same way but had better directions.

so i'm too lazy now to pull up the link, but on the lion brand website, the hearts on a string mittens are super easy!  they go fast using the homespun, but if you use worsted, they work, you may get sick of going around and around and around.
