Sorry it has been a while since I posted a project. I have been sick with a fever. I still have one but I wanted to post this real quick.

Ok so a bunch of people asked me for the pattern I used for the crochet Bella's Mittens http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=323690.0. I made them myself with my own pattern. I don't make mittens the way most people do so bear with me. I am putting pictures so you can see how I do it.

here is the top

and here is the bottom

I know this doesn't look like the Bella Mittens but you can use this pattern and I have noted what to do to make the Bella ones Cheesy

Easy Mittens
by: AprilDraven

for personal use only

H hook

Abbreviations:
Rnd: round
Sc: single crochet
Ss: slip stitch
FO: Fasten off
hdc: half double crochet
dc: double crochet
fpdc: front post double crochet
bpdc: back post double crochet

*NOTE: use a marker and work in rounds*

 ch 2 or form magic circle
Rnd 1: 8 sc in ring
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (16)
Rnd 3: *1 sc, 2 sc in next sc* rep from * to * around (24)
Rnd 4-19: sc in each sc around
ss 1, FO
(this is the hand part)
Thumb:
ch 2 or form magic circle
Rnd 1: 8 sc in ring
Rnd 2: *2 sc, 2 sc in next sc* rep from * to * around (10)
Rnd 3-9: sc in each sc around (7 rounds)
ss 1, FO

by this point you should have 2 pieces that look like this.

If you have bigger hands or longer hands adjust accordingly. add a couple rounds or subtract a couple rounds to make it smaller. The pieces should fit like that.

Take the thumb and sew it to the  hand piece 4 stitches


then attach yarn anywhere on the bottom and sc around thumb and whole mitten. You should have 30 stitches total. (of course the count would change if you altered the pattern)

Rnd 1-3: sc in each sc around (3 rounds)
Rnd 4: *4 sc, sc2tog* rep from * to * around
Rnd 5-9: sc in each sc around
at this point if you wanted to make the entire mitten single crochet (ex. If you were making the crochet Bella's Mittens) you could just keep going until you reached your desired length.

I didn't I changed it up.
Rnd 10: ss1, ch 2, hdc in each sc around, ss1 to join
Rnd 11 to desired length: ch 2, *1 fpdc, 1 bpdc* rep from * to * around
ss 1, FO.

I hope this helps a lot of people Cheesy

oh, man, i didn't even see this until today! i like your pattern even better than mine! there aren't enough crochet mitten patterns out there - only knit, which i don't do (yet...).. or rather, there are crochet mitten patterns, but they're all really awkward looking phentex things from the 70s. heheh.. i'm SO glad to see the distance crochet has come in the past 30 years!
