Crochet that looks like Knit?! Yes, please! These Fair Isle Mittens are in fact completely crocheted! Using the Knit Stitch (AKA Waistcoast Stitch, AKA Split Single Crochet) you can achieve a knitted look with your crochet hook. This beautiful pattern is new (and FREE) from Yarnspirations! You can find the Fair Isle Crochet Mittens HERE in the Yarnspirations Winter Kaleidoscope Lookbook. The yarn used is Caron X Pantone. This is a newer yarn that hit the market a few months ago. Each braid of Caron X Pantone has 5 different coordinating color balls of yarn that are linked together. You will need to separate the links and roll the yarn into balls. OR feel free to use another worsted weight yarn from Yarnspirations! Bernat Super Value or Caron Simply Soft would be great choices for these mittens!
These mittens are one size fits all but you could easily adjust for bigger or smaller by selecting a different yarn or hook size than the pattern calls for. I went down to a size H hook and the mittens are perfect for my small/stumpy hands LOL! When I make a pair for Zoe I think I will use Caron Simply Soft and a size G hook. I would also eliminate a few rows on the first few rounds.
I have made a video for you to show how exactly to make the Knit Stitch (Waistcoat/Split SC)! Plus I give tips on how to change color and carry your yarn!
These mittens are completely reversible so you will crochet both hands the same way. You will follow a pixel graph (included in the pattern) for the snowflake portion of the mitten.
Cozy winter crochet projects are my favorite! Please be sure to use the hashtags #RepeatCrafterMe and #Yarnspirations in your mitten posts!
