Some of the more detailed afghan patterns can weigh quite a lot! This blanket I made for a friend weighed just over 10lbs once it was finished. The one I’m working on atm I think will top that. I have two friends who’ve gotten 7-10lb blankets from me as gifts who say it’s their favorite because of the weight. I think crochet blankets can make fantastic weighted blankets for those who need them and look lovely to. ❀#creationsofbastet

Oh the places you will go Winter Mittens Free pattern

It is the holiday season and things have been in full go here at Creations of Bastet, after I finished making something for a gift I decided to share the pattern. This is the first pattern I have written up and I hope everyone enjoys it. Any kind of yarn can be used of course, but Red Hear Super Saver Melonberry gives the color that goes with the theme. When worked up in this pattern it reminds me of the roads and balloons in the book and everyone needs some good winter mittens.

Oh the places you will go, is one of my all time favorite books. The fact that is teaches that life can be up and down no matter where you go is amazing. Of course the keep your chin up message included doesn’t hurt.

This is for a ladies size medium mitten, and can be adjusted up or down. I chose to use yarn that matched my theme but you can use any yarn that makes you happy. I hope you enjoy my first pattern.

Supplies:

Red heart super saver Melonberry
Tapestry needle for weaving in the ends
I (5.5mm) hook
J (6.0mm) hook

Term glossary:

ch = chain
sc = single crochet
sl = slip stitch
sc-blo = single crochet back loop only
dec = decrease

These mittens are worked open and then stitched up, the thumb is worked in the round. Gauge is not important for this pattern.

Starting with the I hook chain 11, continue with the I hook for this part

Row 1: Sc in the second ch from the hook (10 stitches) ch 1 and turn

Row 2: Sc-blo only in each of the sc’s (10 stitches)

Change to J hook and turn the ribbed cuff to the side.

Row 1: Attach yarn to end of the cuff with a SL, ch 1, sc in the same spot, work sc’s across working in an increase of stitches where it works for you, at the end of the row you will want to have 34 stitches in total. ch 1 and turn.

Row 24: Sc dec, sc in the next 30 stitches sc dec in last two sc’s, ch 1 and turn.

Tie yarn off and fold the mitten over in half. Using the tapestry needle you have cut off a piece of yarn and whip stitch the cuff together first, stopping at Row 1 of the main part of the mitten, fasten off.

Start whip stitching again at Row 9 on the main part of the mitten, going all the way up and around to completely close off the mitten, except for the thumb hole you left open. Fasten off.
Change back to I hook

Row 1: Attach yarn with a sl, ch 1 and sc in the same spot. Sc all the way around the opening so that you have a total of 18 stitches, SL to join in first sc.

Row 2: CH 1, sc-blo in same space as join. Sc-blo in each stitch around..

Row 7: Repeat row 5 ( 9 stitches)
