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.

♥ 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.
