Crystal Palace Yarns - FREE PATTERN - Crochet

  

Mochi Plus

Coiled Mitts

Designed by Cathy Campbell

Description:  These crocheted mitts are accentuated by the beautiful slow-stripes of Mochi Plus.  The colors change by themselves.  Working in the back of the stitch pushes the line of V's forward, creating horizontal "coils" that are reminiscent of vertical knitted ribbing.

Level:  Easy (sc, hdc, sl st)

Size:  Adult Medium

Materials: 

Gauge:  16 hdc=4"

Abbreviations:  hdc- half double crochet; rnd- round; sc- single crochet;sk- skip; sl st- slip stitch

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Work 28 sts in Single Crochet Foundation.  On last st, stop before pulling yarn through last time (2 loops on hook).  Being very careful not to twist the chain, join by inserting hook into bottom (chain part) of first st and draw through all loops on hook.

 

Rnd 1:  Working in back loop, hdc in each sc around.

 

Note: From Rnd 2 to end of piece, instead of working into the top of the previous row as is typical, work each hdc in back band behind st. This will push the V's in the front of the work to form the coil design. (Click here to see a picture of this technique.)

 

Rnd 2:  Hdc in each hdc around.

 

Repeat Rnd 2 until piece measures 4".
