Pattern Notes        

Please take time to create a gauge sample before beginning work.

These mittens are worked in a continuous spiral and will create a diagonal pattern. Do not join rounds unless indicated.

Use hook size I/9 (5.5mm) for teen adult small mitten.

Use hook size J/10 (6.0 mm) for adult size medium.

The final round at the cuff is worked into the posts of the previous round and creates the appearance of rolling. This is an intended part of the design.

A small length of contrasting yarn may be used in place of a stitch marker. Weave the yarn upwards as you work rounds in the piece. See picture on page 10.

The yarn used for these mittens contains natural fiber and requires special laundering. Please read yarn labels and follow directions to maintain the life of your crochet work.
