SPECIAL STITCHES

PATTERN

PART 5 – Deluxe Bath Gift Set Bath Mitt

I used approximately 60g of MC, and 5g of CC to make one bath mitt – Use hook suitable to your yarn choice

Right Hand

Using MC, make a magic circle

Helpful hint: the chain 1 in each round does not count as a stitch

Helpful hint: I used a 3.5mm hook for mine, but if you work loosely, or the person you are making the mitt for has small hands, then go down a hook size for the mitt

Round 1: ch 1, hdc 10 into mc, ss into 1st hdc (10)

Round 2: ch 1, 2 hdc into same stitch, 2 hdc into each following st, ss into 1st hdc (20)

Round 3: ch 1, 2 hdc into same st, 1 hdc into next st, 2 hdc into next st, rep to end, ss into 1st hdc (30)

Round 4: ch 1, 2 hdc into same st, hdc into next 2 sts, 2 hdc into next st, rep to end, ss into ch 1 (40)

Helpful hint: if you end with a single hdc and your increase stitch is in the middle of the increase stitch from the previous round, then you know you have done the increase correctly, however ALWAYS count your stitches

Helpful hint: we have ignored the chain 1 up until now, however, to keep the join nice and straight, you need to slip stitch into the ch 1, and then make your first stitch in the same space

Round 5: ch 1, hdc into same st, hdc into following 39 st, ss into ch 1 (40)

Round 6 – 18: ch 1, hdc into same st, hdc into following 39 st, ss into ch 1 (40)

Round 19: ch 1, hdc into same st, ch 10, skip 5 sts, hdc into next 34 sts, ss into ch 1 (35)

Round 20: ch 1, hdc into same st, hdc into each ch (10 hdc’s), hdc into next 34 sts, ss into ch 1 (45)

Helpful hint: when you half double crochet into the chain stitches, use the top loop of the chain because when we make the thumb we will pick up stitches using the bottom (inside) loop of the chain for a nice, neat thumb gusset

Round 21 – 24: ch 1, hdc into same st, hdc into next 44 sts, ss into ch 1 (45)

Round 25: ch 1, hdc into same st, hdc into next 4sts, hdc2tog, hdc2tog, hdc into the next 36 sts, ss into ch 1 (43)

Round 26: ch 1, hdc into same st, hdc into next 4 sts, hdc2tog, hdc2tog, hdc into next 34 sts, ss into ch 1 (41)

Round 27: ch 1, hdc into same st, hdc into next 4 sts, hdc2tog, hdc2tog, hdc into next 32 sts, ss into ch 1 (39)

Round 28: ch 1, hdc into same st, hdc into next 2 sts, hdc2tog, hdc2tog, hdc into rem 32 sts, ss into ch 1 (37)

Round 29 – 30: ch 1, hdc into same st, hdc into next 36 sts, ss into ch 1 (37)

Helpful hint: if you would like a longer glove, you can just add a few rounds here

Round 31: ch 1, hdc2tog, hdc into next 35 sts, ss into ch 1 (36)

Round 32: ch 1, hdc2tog, hdc into next 34 sts, ss into ch 1, cut yarn, weave in ends (35)

Thumb

This is a bit finicky, but looks great when finished, as you can hardly see where the thumb was joined to the gusset.

Using MC, you will pick up 18 sts in the round

Round 1: start with a standing hdc, or ch 1, hdc into same st, hdc into the next 17 sts, ss into 1st hdc (18)

Round 2: ch 1, hdc into same sp, hdc into next 17 sts, ss into ch 1 (18)

Round 3 – 6: rep rnd 2

Round 7: ch 1, hdc2tog, rep 8 times, ss into ch 1 (9)

Round 8: ch 1, *hdc2tog, hdc into next st*, rep *.* twice, cut yarn, weave tail through outside loops of top of hdc, pull tightly, thread through and weave in ends (6)

Border

Change to CC

Helpful hint: you can start the border anywhere however I start in the middle of the bottom of the glove

Round 1: join with a ss, sc into same st, sc into next 34 sts, ss into 1st sc (35)

Round 2: ch 1, crab st into next sc, crab st into next 34 sts, ss into 1st crab st, cut yarn, weave in ends (34)

If you want to add a loop to hang your mitt up to dry, chain 20 in CC, at the join in the last row of the border
