Smitten with Mittens

Hi everyone! Who’s sad to see October is almost over? I know I am. I keep hoping and making items that will be useful for the coming months, like this cozy Diana Mittens crochet pattern, but alas it has not gotten cold enough here in SoCal… which makes me feel like October isn’t really all that close to being over anyway. Also I haven’t given out candy… Halloween is the icing on the October cake after all.
Anyway… on to this week’s new pattern. I was sent this fantastic yarn by Premier Yarns to make some cute little mittens and I knew exactly what I wanted to make. I wanted to expand my Diana Line. This is one of my oldest and favorite lines. I think I keep coming back to it because of all that lovely texture and how fun it is to make matching scarves, hats, boot cuffs, and even a bag (or 2). You could be decked out in your Diana finest. Also, I named the line after Wonder Woman. That’s cool enough for me at any time.
Now this pattern is so stinking easy, which means you can really get creative with your finished piece. Make it in all the colors! Add pompoms to the wrists (which I almost did, because why not!) or leave them as fingerless gloves. I have a photo below of them before I add the finger part and these would be super cute fingerless gloves.
Regardless if you make them all wild or one color (like I did here), I hope you like the Diana Mittens crochet pattern ๐Ÿ™‚

Notes

  • These mittens are worked in the round one piece, in 3 sections: Body, Thumb, and Band.
  • You will need to know how to work into the Back Third Loop (BTL) for this pattern. When looking at the you will have the 2 loops on top of the hdc (the V on top), lean the stitch towards you and will see the third loop that runs along the back of the stitch. This is the loop you will work into. This stitch is also known as the Camel Stitch.

  1. Love this pattern – can you help me? I made a left and a right, but the right had the seam on top of my hand. What am i doing wrong??

      1. I made the Medium. I will try again paying attention to the turns, but I thought I did them correctly. I admit I was watching Hallmark movies ๐Ÿ˜œ. I will try again ๐Ÿ˜

      2. Finally – third time’s a charm! I made them fingerless and they are wonderful. Wish I could send you a picture – maybe on Instagram?
