Manly Fingerless Mitts Crochet Pattern

Manly Mitts Crochet Pattern

My hubby was in sore need of a new pair of fingerless mitts to ward off the chilly weather we have been having. The last pair I made him was rather obnoxiously made out of his favorite super bulky yarn, which made them end up looking like a pair of boxing gloves! After looking around for a manly mitt pattern, I decided to just make one up. Here is the result. I have to admit, I love the ribbing texture on these. It is so nice that I might have to make me a pair as well. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments on the pattern.

Supplies Needed:
Yarn – Knit Picks, Chroma in Worsted (I used the Paperback color-way)
Size I crochet hook
Tapestry needle for weaving in yarn ends

Stitches Used:
SL ST – Slip Stitch
CH – Chain
SC – Single Crochet
SCBL – Single Crochet Back Loop
SC2TOG - Single Crochet Two Together (or decrease)

 Body of Mitt:

CH 32, join with SL ST, do not twist chain when joining.
Round 1 – CH 1, SC in joining CH, mark with stitch marker. SC in each CH around. 
Round 2 – SC in first SC of round 1, mark with stitch marker. SC in each SC around.
*From this point on, work in continuous rounds, moving stitch marker each round.
Round 3 to 19 – SCBL in each SC around.
Round 20 - Work 11 SCBL, 9 CH, skip 9 SC, continue SCBL around.
Round 21 – 11 SCBL, SC in each of 9 CH from previous round, continue SCBL around.
Round 22 to 33 – SCBL in each SC around.


* Work through both loops of stitch
Round 1 – Join yarn in thumb opening, SC around (22 SC)
Round 2 – SC around (22 SC)
Round 3 – SC2TOG, 2 SC [repeat 5 times]
Round 4 – SC2TOG, 2 SC [repeat 3 times] (12 SC)
Round 5 to 9 – SC around (12 SC)

Weave in ends with tapestry needle.
