Snuggly Mitts- Tunisian Crochet Pattern

Posted by Julia Wardell in crochet, fingerless mitts, pattern, Tunisian


I am all about a good pair of snugly fingerless mitts in the fall. I found the inspiration for this pattern on Ravelry and this is my interpertaion of the Easy Fingerless Mitts knitting pattern by Calypso Knits. And since the weather is only getting cooler I decided to share this pattern with everyone. So here it is.........

Snugly Mitts Tunisian Crochet Pattern

By Julia Wardell


Size I & H crochet hook

Size H Afghan Hook

Tapestry Needle

Stitch Marker

I used about a 1/4 of a skein of Pandia's Jewels fingering weight yarn in Purple Heart.

Note: Pattern Makes 1 pair of mitts. The pattern works from the wrist to the fingers.


Ch 42 with I crochet hook. Switch to H arghan hook and work foundation forward pass - 42 lps and return pass.

Rows 1-4: Forward Pass- Tks 1, *Tps 2, Tks 2, repeat from * across and work return pass.

Row 5: Tks forward and return pass.

Repeat Row 5 until piece measures 6 inches beg.

Next 4 Rows: Foreward pass Tks 1, *Tps 2, Tks 2, Repeat from * across.

With H crochet hook work bind off row. What I did was insert the hook into the stitch as if I were making a Tks and pulled up a loop, then pulled that loop through the loop on the hook, only one lp should remain on the hook.

Fasten off and leave a long tail. This tail will be used to sew the mitts closed.

Construction: You will stitch the sides together leaving an opening for the thumb. To start- fold the mitts in half so that the right sides are together and with your tapestry needle wip stitch the edge together for 2 1/4 inches. Skip the next 10 rows (this is the thumb opening) and the wip stitch the rest of the edges together. Fasten off and weave in all ends. Turn the mitt right side out.

Thumb: this section uses the ssc stitch often known as the short single crochet stitch or the Split Single Crochet stitch. You can learn how to make this stitch just by surfing the interent. Here is a good video by Stitch Scene the Split Single Crochet that shows you how to make the stitch.

You will use your H crochet hook to make the thumb. You will also need a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round since this section is worked in the round. Make sure to move your stitch marker as you work. Attach yarn to thumb opening near the seam.

Rnd 1: Ch 1, sc in the same st as join, sc in the next 11 sts, sc in the next 12 stitches on the other side of the opening- DO NOT JOIN - 24 sts.

Rnd 2: ssc in each st around.

Rnd 3: Scc in next 4 sts, ssc2tog, ssc in next 5 sts, ssc2tog, ssc in next 5 sts, ssc2tog, ssc in next 4 sts - 21 sts.

The ssc2tog is the same as making a single crochet 2 together stitch (sc2tog).

Rnd 4: Scc in next 2 sts, ssc2tog, ssc in next 3 sts, ssc2tog, ssc in next 4 sts, ssc2tog, ssc in next 3 sts, ssc2tog, ssc in next stitch - 17 sts.

Rnd 5: ssc in next 4 sts, ssc2tog, ssc in next 3 sts, ssc2tog, ssc in next 2 sts, ssc2tog, ssc in next 2 sts - 14 sts.

Rnd 6: ssc in each sts around.

Rnds 7-10: Repeat Rnd 6. Fasten Off and weave in ends.

If you are still not sure about using the ssc then just do a sc instead.

There you have it. If you have any questions please leave a comment. I hope you enjoy these mitts as much as I do :)


I do not understand some of the instructions…would you please make a video tutorial? Or provide a legend for the type of stitches? Thank you!

I made this using a chain of 32, slightly stretching it gave me a 7" length. It should fit around your wrist with a bit of space because you need extra stretch for fit after seaming.
Check out youtube for Tunisian crochet methods. This is a technique that benefits from axtually seeing how it’s done. Good luck to you and thanks to the designer.

I also have the question about 42 stiches. Seems rather large.

Posted by Retha on February 09, 2015

do you have any instructions for a beginner in Tinisian crochet ?

Posted by Judith on January 16, 2015

I don’t see a list of abbreviations used in this pattern. May I have one, please.

I have a question concerning the ch 42 of the foundation chain. I love this pattern, and tried to make it. But the ch 42 was too long. Does the chain 42 wrap around the hand, or is it for the lengthwise of the mitt? Yours looks perfect, but a size J hook and a ch 42 creates a foundation that can wrap twice around my hand.

Can these be done with worsted weight yarn?

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I love Tunisian knit & made a headband/ear warmer for a friend using this stitch. When she mentioned fingerless gloves, I searched for what seemed like forever to find a Tunisian pattern that I liked. Finally! :D
