Crochet Fingerless Mitts Inspiration:

A few weeks ago, I received some happy mail in the form of another fun Hobbii Challenge. This time, we were asked to try out the Hobbii Upcycled Alpaca Blend yarn. At the end of last year, I had been toying with the idea of designing fingerless mitts but I couldn’t decide on what stitch combination to use. When I received this yarn, I just knew I had to make the fingerless mitts a reality! I loved working with this yarn, it was super soft and not scratchy like other varieties of wool yarns!

I used a combination of the Tunisian crochet crossed stitch and Tunisian crochet purl stitch to give some nice stitch definition and a ribbing effect. I am really happy with the way they turned out, I hope you love making them!

This pattern was showcased as part of the 2024 International Crochet Month Blog Hop! Marie from Underground Crafter has put together this blog hop featuring fun new patterns throughout the month.

Every day during March, a new, permanently free crochet pattern was released. You can make these projects to keep, for gifts, or to donate to charity while chatting with other crocheters and sharing your projects to win giveaway prizes!

Notes About Sizing for the Crochet Fingerless Mitts Pattern:

  • Measure your gauge swatch across unstretched and stretched. Note the two numbers and subtract to find the difference. This is how much you will need to subtract from the hand circumference measurement to determine width for a tighter fit.
  • Measure your hand circumference and length using the schematic below. Measure your hand circumference by wrapping your tape measure around your knuckles. Measure the length by measuring from your knuckles to 2 in. below your wrist.
     
  • Calculate stitches per inch by dividing the number of stitches by inches of gauge swatch. For example: The gauge swatch measurement was 15 sts per 4 inches. 15 divided by 4 = 3.75 sts per inch.
  • Use the measurements to calculate number of stitches to chain
    • For a regular fit, example:
      • For an 8 in. hand circumference, you will need to chain (8 in. x 3.75 sts) = 30 sts (for this pattern you will need a multiple of 6 + 2 so we will do 32 sts) for a total width of approximately 8 in.
        • Calculate using the above method to find out how many stitches you need to chain. Substitute this number for X in the pattern below.
  • For a tighter fit, example:
    • The gauge swatch stretched is 5 in. and unstretched it is 4 in. 5 – 4 = 1 in. You will need to subtract 1 in. from the hand circumference measurement.
       
    • 8 in. hand circumference – 1 in. = 7 in. This means you will need to chain (7 in. x 3.75 sts) = 26.25 sts (for this pattern you will need a multiple of 6 + 2 so we will do 24 sts + 2 = 26 sts) for a total width of approximately 7 in. 
      • Calculate using the above method to find out how many stitches you need to chain. Substitute this number for X in the pattern below.
  • Measure from your knuckles to 2 in. below your wrist. This is the length you will need to complete. Substitute this number for Y in the pattern below.

Crochet Fingerless Mitts Pattern Instructions:

Ch X (based on my calculations and gauge, ch 32 for Women’s Large; ch 26 is suggested for Women’s Small and Medium for a regular fit) 

Row 1 (Foundation Row): Pick up a loop in the back bump of each chain. Complete normal RetP. (X stitches)

Row 2: [(Sk st, tss, tss in skipped st) two times, tps 2], repeat [ ] to the end of the row, work last st as normal.

Repeat Row 2 until you reach the desired length as calculated above (Y) For the sample, I continued to 7.5 in. for a hand circumference of 8 in. based on my calculations and measurements.

Bind off and leave a 12 in. tail, cut yarn. With the wrong side facing out, fold in half as shown below. Leave a 1 in. hole for the thumb and attach locking stitch markers to signify beginning and end of thumb hole. Using the leftover tail, whip stitch along the edge leaving the thumb hole open.

Tunisian crochet pillow pattern Inspiration:

A couple of months ago, I was invited to participate in a fun challenge by Hobbii Yarn, the Cozy Challenge and I had to hop on! The challenge was based on quilt and log-cabin inspired designs – and we were invited to explore and interpret this theme through our pattern designing skills.

I chose to create a Tunisian crochet pillow using Hobbii Amigo Chunky (the perfect cozy yarn with nice stitch definition) to represent the Cozy theme. I decided on these beautiful blue-green colors that worked so well together. I chose Patina Green and Petroleum Green. Initially, I did a poll to ask whether I should create separate patches to attach or do surface slip stitch and you all liked the think slip stitch idea. This pillow has a rustic look! This was my first time attempting surface slip stitch on the Tunisian full stitch.

With the 10 mm crochet hook, and the right side of the panel facing out, count to the 13th st in the foundation row and join Col B into the front loop of the stitch, make a slip knot and go into the front loop of the stitch directly above the previous stitch and sl st.

Turn the panel sideways and count to the 16th row from the foundation row, go under both loops and join Col B, go into the front loop of the next st and surface sl st. Continue working into sts across making sure they are aligned in a straight line. When you reach the vertical surface sl st lines, work under both colors and continue surface sl st across.  Count to the 19th row from the foundation row and repeat steps as above to create a second horizontal line.

Inspiration

Lately, I have been challenging myself to design patterns that can use the basic Tunisian crochet stitches and a traditional hook. I realize that not everyone has the tools needed to practice Tunisian crochet and may not be ready to invest in new hooks! I loved working with this 100% wool yarn, it gives beautiful stitch definition! I also recorded a full video tutorial to go along with the pattern so you can easily follow along! I love how closely the Tunisian crochet knit and Tunisian crochet purl stitches mimic actual knit stitches! It’s the perfect pattern to work on if you want to something that looks like knitted crochet.

    • Example:
      • The Gauge swatch stretched is 11 in. and unstretched it is 8.5 in. 11-8.5 = 3.5 in. You will need to subtract 3.5 in. from the head circumference measurement. 
      • 21 in. head circumference – 3.5 in. = 17.5 in. This means you will need to work the piece to a total length of 17.5 in. Substitute this number for X in the pattern below.
  • Note: Depending on stretchiness of yarn and head size of the toddler/child, you may want to decrease width by decreasing 1 or 2 stitches when you chain.

Tighten the stitch and now your yarn is anchored to your piece. You should do this every time you work with a new strand. I usually work stitches until I have a 6 in. tail remaining (enough to weave in) then I start a new strand. For this project, I used a 40 in. strand doubled over each time.

TUNISIAN CROCHET KITS

TUNISIAN CROCHET BLANKET PATTERN INSPIRATION:

The sky and clouds theme is a common one we see in nursery room decor and in the past I have designed using this surface bobble stitch technique and it turned out very cute so I thought I would attempt it with this beautiful and super soft Bernat Forever Fleece. What makes this an even more special design is that my little guy actually helped me pick these colors out at a recent trip to JoAnns!

This blanket pattern is also part of the Giftstravaganza Blog Hop hosted by Marie of Underground Crafter. This blog hop featured a new FREE design each day this month featuring handmade holiday gift ideas! My feature date is November 18th and you will be able to grab the PDF for FREE for 24 hours starting on Nov. 18th!

Inspiration

A couple of months ago, I was invited to participate in a fun challenge by Hobbii Yarn, the Japandi Challenge and I had to hop on! The challenge was based on a Japanese x Scandinavian theme – and we were invited to explore and interpret these themes through our pattern designing skills.

I chose to create a Tunisian crochet scarf using Hobbii Pearly Haze (the softest most beautiful yarn I have ever used) to represent the Japandi theme. I decided on these beautiful soft colors that worked so well together. I chose Turkish Blue, Teal, and Cream. Initially, I did a poll to ask whether you all wanted stripes or colorblock sections for the color work and a lot of people said stripes but the designer in my couldn’t let go of the idea of color blocks so I did a mix of both. The scarf has a lot of character and can be worn in many different ways! Of course I had to finish off with some fringe to complete the look!

A huge thank you to Hobbi Yarn for providing the yarn for this pattern!

Ps. If you’re on my mailing list, be sure to check your email for a special discount!

About Pattern

This pattern is inspired by the Japanese and Scandinavian aesthetic. This scarf will be a simple and relaxing design created with the Tunisian knit stitch and some basic colorwork. Fringe will be added to finish off the design. Tunisian crochet is making a comeback and this pattern will be great for beginners and advanced crocheters alike for getting familiar with the basic Tunisian crochet stitches and minimalist colorwork design. It will be the perfect addition to any winter wardrobe! This pattern is worked flat in one piece, bottom-up. The techniques used in this pattern include Tunisian crochet knit stitch and changing colors in Tunisian crochet. This pattern can be completed by an advanced-beginner. The pattern includes video tutorials for the techniques used. The pattern is divided into 4 sections and each section has an accompanying overview picture and color chart provided.

I can’t even imagine the time and effort they had to put into such a project for our benefit…Thank you RP for such a wonderful experience!
