SPECIAL STITCHES 

⭐️ 3rd Loop: Also known as middle or back bar. Horizontal strand located under the top 2 loops, created by the yarn over when making the hdc. 

⭐️Single Crochet 2 Together (sc2tog): *Insert hook into indicated stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop; repeat from * in next stitch indicated, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook. (1 decrease)

NOTES

  • Project is worked in joined rounds.  You can use sl st to join as written or an invisible join.
  • Invisible join is created by removing free loop from hook, thread hook from back to front in first st, place free loop on hook and draw through stitch. Remove the hook from the free loop and replace in the opposite direction to start the next round, this will make sure your loop is not twisted.
  • Mitten starts with a ch 2, but an adjustable ring can be substituted instead if you wish.
  • Place a marker in the first stitch of each round.
  • For this pattern only, you can change color AFTER you complete the stitch instead of when you have 2 loops left on your hook.
