Sparkler Mitts

Stylish with an interesting construction - these crochet fingerless gloves are worked flat and use short rows to form a circle around the thumb. Because of this unusual construction, they are great to show off variegated yarn.
These mitts are the crochet version of my knitted Starburst mitts.

Since I had some problems to find a name I asked the community of knittingparadise.com to help me come up with a name - thank you all for your great ideas. I finally settled for Sparkler - to go with the name of the knitted version of these mitts :)

Materials
  • 3mm crochet hook
  • about 40 to 45 grams of fingering weight yarn
  • 4 removable stitch markers
  • a tapestry needle to weave in ends


Techniques and Abbreviations
Short Rows
  • connect and turn with slip stitch: join the last stitch of one row to the edge of another side: insert your hook into the last stitch of the row AND into the stitch of the part you want to connect with (called here: the other side) - see picture 1 below. Yarn over and draw yarn through two loops (picture 2 below). Then complete the sc. Do a slip stitch into the next row on the other side before starting the next row (picture 3 below).
Connect and Turn with Slip Stitch
  • join with single crochet: as shown in this YouTube video by tlcinspirations - however, in this pattern it's not used to join one side to the other, but to join the last row to the very first row.


General Construction

The mitts are worked flat in eight sections (from A to H). The diagram shows how  shows how the sections form the complete mitt, how many stitches there in a full row.
It also shows the mitt is to be folded and which parts are to be attached to which when finishing the mitts (or while you're knitting section F and G). Sections E, F, G, and H are mirror images of sections D, C, B, and A respectively, i.e. where there is an increase in A, there is an decrease in H - and the short row lenghts are mirrored as well.


Size and Gauge
This finished mitts measure 19cm in height - at their highest point. and about 19cm in circumference at the wrist.
11 rows of the used stitch (sctbl) equal 5 cm in height. And 12 stitches (sctbl) equal 5 cm in width.

    1. When you start connecting the sides (C to F) you fold half of the mitt over and attach the last stitch of one row to the last stitch of the part crocheted before.
      Alternatively, you can just crochet the complete piece and then sew the side together.

    1. Hallo Heike, danke für den Link von deinem Blog. Ich freue mich immer, wenn man zu mir verlinkt :)

      Und über Übersetzungen freue ich mich auch: da die Anleitung unter einer „Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License“ veröffentlicht ist, darfst du sie gerne übersetzen und – unter den gleichen Bedingungen wie die Originalanleitung – weitergeben – d.h. für nicht-kommerzielle Weiternutzung ist sie freigegeben.

      Noch toller wäre es allerdings, wenn die Anleitung dann auch auf deutsch irgendwo veröffentlicht würde und ich darauf verlinken könnte (wenn sich schon jemand die Mühe gemacht hat) - natürlich mit „Credits“, wer übersetzt hat …

      Liebe Grüsse
      SR
