One part hobo, one part mitten, all parts awesome. Single crochet with bulky Brown Sheep yarn, no pattern.







A friend suckered me into making her a pair, so as I work on them I tried to write the pattern. I've never written or even used a pattern before, I don't know abbreviations, and I haven't tested it. Use at your own risk! (and then let me know how it turned out Smiley )

2 skeins Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride "Bulky", Approx. 25 yards of trim color. Size 'J' hook. I didn't do a guage swatch...sorry.

You turn after every row and chain one.

Cuff
Row 1: Chain 26, join
Row 2: sc one row
Rows 3-10: (sc in front of stitch, sc in back of stitch), repeat (around row 4 would be a good time to make sure this fits correctly)
Row 11: (12sc, add a stitch) repeat
Row 12: (13sc, add a stitch) repeat
Rows 13-15: add a stitch, 29sc
Rows 16-18: sc

Thumb
Row 19: This row is difficult to explain. You are dividing the top of the mitt into two circles, one for the thumb, one for the rest of the fingers. 5sc, then sc the two sides together 6 stitches from the end. 6sc inorder to finish the first row of the thumb. There should be 12 stitches total for the thumb's circumference.
Row 20-28: 12sc on the thumb
Row 29: (sc tog) 6 times
There will still be a small opening at the tip of the thumb. Leave a long tail when you cut your yarn and use the tail to sew it together.

Fingers
Rows 19-25: sc
Row 26: (sc, increase) repeat *note, depending upon the width of your fingers, you may want to increase twice for every single crochet or vice versa. You are doing this so the fabric can be comfortably stitched together between your fingers.

Mitt
Row 1: chain 4, join
Row 2: 10sc in the loop
Rows 3-5: (increase, sc)    - I can't remember if I did this for 2 or three rows....sorry.
Row 6: (increase, 2 sc)
Rows 7-24: sc
If you have shorter fingers, stop a row or two sooner.

Finishing
With you accent color, sc around the bottom of the mitt (leave a long tail), cuff, and at the top of the fingers. Put on the glove and mark where you can comfortably pull the fabric between your fingers and stitch the sides together using your accent yarn (when I made the pink ones shown here, I sc around each individual finger, joining the sides together like I did the thumb. I realize now that that was dumb). Weave in your ends, except for on the mitt. Use the tail to whip stitch the mitt across the back of the hand, then weave in the ends.

Repeat for other mitten.


There they are. I don't know if you will actually get a mitten if you follow them, but I tried. Best of luck! I'm very open to feedback, unless your feedback is to learn abbreviations. Smiley

tutorial? just a little bit?

ooo, I don't know how to write/read patterns (hence me just making it up as I went along). But more or less what I did was create a chain large enough to fit around my wrist (and actually, they are borderline too tight, so I'd recommend giving yourself a little room), join it and single crochet until you have a cuff. I would crochet into the front of one stitch and the back of the next so the cuff would be a slightly different stitch. Once I had a nice wrist warmer, I single crocheted adding a couple stitches each row (sorry, I don't know how many. I'm trying to recreate these right now, and am kicking myself in the ass for not writing it down). I did that until I got past my thumb webbing and could divide the top into two parts, thumb and fingers. I added a thumb, then continued up until it was comfortably past my fingers. I know I had to add another stitch about every 3 stitches or so on my last row of pink for the fingers, so there would be enough material to join comfortably between each individual finger. I single crocheted around all the edges with the dark brown and the "hobo" part was finished. The flap was made much like I'd imagine most mittens are (this is the first pair I've ever made), and stitched on across the back of my hand.

I know those aren't particularly clear. I'm sure someone has written an actual decent pattern for this type of gloves somewhere.

I made a pair like those, and my dad calls them my "hobo chic" gloves.   If you're looking for a pattern: just take any old mitten pattern, crochet until the body goes over your knuckles, then made the top separately and sew it on halfway around.

OH man, I have been wanting a pair of those!!!!  I am not very good at doing things without a pattern.  Kind of like I cannot play music by ear, but can read music.  Same concept I guess.

You did a great job.  If you do it again and can write it down I would definately make some.

I am extremely impressed! I can never read patterns either and was beginning to despair of making one up. I think I'll give it a try, though. Do you have an idea of about how much yarn you used (in yards/meters)?

It's right around a skein of Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride bulky per mitten. One skein is 125 yards (114 metres) and 4 oz (113 grams), so twice that.  The trim was just scrap bits. 20 yards tops?

Umbrellamaker, thank you, thank you.  I am definately going to try this.  Hopefully before it turns too warm to wear them.  Thank you for making the pattern for those of us that cannot play by ear.

I'm almost done with a pair.  They turned out kinda wierd, but some of it I kind of winged since I didn't have the instructions with me.

It's my first pair of gloves.  They look a wee bit random, like coral.  I'll take pics later.

after a few wears, the crochet's conformed to my hand better, and the fingers look more even.  unfortunately, i don't have a before picture.  trust me though --- i coulda definitely done a better job with the fingers.

i haven't decided yet if i'm going to go 'round the edges with a contrasting color or not.  i'm leaning towards no, 'cause i'm itching to do other projects.

picture time:





the left mitten bit is kind of wonky too.  I couldn't figure out how the original pattern's mitt part worked.  Somehow I got larger and larger.  So I just stitched into the fabric and around, leaving the palm side open and decreasing as needed.  I decreased a wee bit too fast/much with the first/left one.

I also love your mitten pattern. I like the basketweave pattern that the back/forward loop stitching makes.  Here are mine:

I still don't have a clue as to how to post pictures on the board

One ended up slightly larger than the other, I think I was more tense today than yesterday!  I still plan on wearing them, with the one that fits better on the right hand.  They were perfect for a have to have wool/acrylic blend in an off color that I loved.

I've just gotten to the thumb and I'm really confused.

"5sc, then sc the two sides together 6 stitches from the end."

Could someone please explain this to me?  Am I doing a slip stitch?  To where?

yeah, that is where I get confused too, does that meant you sc in the back loop of one stitch, then the front loop of the next?

I don't know if this is what the designer meant when she said to crochet in the front loop then the back loop of a stitch, but if you crochet in the front loop of a row for each row I believe (if I remember right) that it make a pseudo-rib stitch. It molds to the wrist and keeps the glove on better.
just a thought!
