Lace Fingerless Mitts

Coats Photo

"Heart and Sole" Mellow Stripes color

Hooray! My pattern for Crochet Lace Fingerless Mitts is available on the Coats Website now.

This is a fun intermediate project that is also quick to stitch up.  Red Heart “Heart and Sole” yarn makes for a colorful pair of mitts.  The yarn is available in 14 different color combos as well as 3 solid colors, so you can find the perfect match to any outfit or mood.

I love fingerless mitts.  Living on a mountain it can be quite chilly, yet having my fingers free while I am typing or crocheting is also handy.  Fingerless mitts are the answer for me.

Sometimes making a pair of anything is a challenge for me.  Seems like I get the first one done and then it takes a very long time for me to even start the second one.  I’ve heard this malady referred to as “Second Sock Syndrome” and the usual solution is to work both socks (or mitts) at the same time.  It’s more unusual to see 2-at-a-time in crochet, but I have managed to do it.

Stay tuned to this blog for my directions on working the two mitts at once!

  1. These are so pretty! makes me want to try the yarn, and maybe even do some real crochet!!

  2. Congratulations! Fabulous pattern!

  3. Very pretty, and I plan to make some with my leftover sock yarn!

    I’m now a follower of yours on Twitter, and thanks to MBT found your blog and tweets!

    • Hey there Bobbins! Glad you found me.
      This is a great pattern for leftovers, cause it doesn’t take a great deal of yardage. Another option is you can work the lace part in one yarn and use a complimentary color of a different yarn for the cuffs.

  4. I was wondering if you ever managed to write out the 2-at-a-time crochet to help avoid the SSS? I have looked all over the net and can not find anything more than people saying to do part of a sock/mitt then work on the next one so you are forced to finish them together… any help in finding a 2-at-a-time instruction would be GREAT!

    • Well, that is basicially it. It isn’t a matter so much of being “forced” to finish them at the same time, as it just helps you maintain consistent gauge in the 2 items so your pairs match. I do need to blog about this though, thanks for the reminder.
