Winter Wonder Squares CAL

I have teamed up with Claire from Bear Rye and some other amazing designers to bring you the Winter Wonder Squares Crochet-a-long. The idea is to make a winter themed blanket by making a square a day and seaming them together. You’ll find the pattern for my Winter Mittens Square below. The PDF on Ravelry includes a graph along with the written pattern.

How my square came to be.

Today is my day and I bring to you my Winter Mittens Square. When I think of winter, the first thing I think of how cold it can be. Not a fan of the cold! One of the first winter essentials that comes to mind is a good cozy, warm pair of  mittens. I have many fond childhood memories of snowball fights, building a snowman, and attempting an igloo! All of those memories were able to happen by having a good pair of mittens. I hope you love the Winter Mittens Square as much as I do.

Don’t have time to make it now, pin it for later.

Pin it for later.

Notes:

Gauge:

4” x 4”= 16 sts x 17 rows in sc

Your square will measure 6” x 6” before border is added.

Finished measurements 8″ x 8″

I added a 1” border around by adding 4 rows alternating between white and silver.

To have a clean square with no floats, you’ll be carrying your yarn as you go. 

Tapestry crochet is done by carrying the two colors of yarn used in a row, and using the indicated color for each stitch while crocheting around the secondary color.

Rows 24-26: Sc 25

Do not fasten off white, continue to border instructions.

Border:

Now sc evenly around the edges. I did 4 rows as follows: white, silver, white, silver 

To work the corners on the border:

Rnd 1: Sc in each st, all the way around. When you get to a corner, work 2 ch sts to turn the corner and then continue sc in each st. Sl st to 1st sc to join, ch 1

Rnd 2: Sc in each st, all the way around. When you get to a corner, work 1 sc into the ch 2 sp created in the previous rnd, ch 2, work another sc st into the same ch 2 sp, then sc all the way around. Sl st to ch 1 to join.

Rnds 3-4: Repeat round 2. At the end of rnd 4, sl st, fasten off. Weave in ends.

Adding the string

Optional:

Now attach the string for the mittens. With approx 12” of yarn on a tapestry needle, insert needle from the wrong side at one inner corner of the wrist of the mitten, pulling it through to the right side. Pull enough through to make a loop and insert it through the opposite inner corner of the mitten wrist pulling excess yarn through. Weave in both ends. I used two pieces of scrap yarn to tie the loop in place.
