THE YARN


To crochet these mittens I used a yarn called Naturgarn from Filcolana. It’s a 100 % wool yarn & it’s super soft. 

The yarn comes in many beautiful colors, but you could easily substitute for any super bulky yarns. Maybe you already have something perfect for this in your stash? 

If substituting, note that this super bulky yarn is on the thinner side.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

  2. Oooh, Nice ! I will have to make these mittens to go along with all the other warm winter wear…. wrist warmers, hat, sweater, and infinity cowl. A nice set.

    • It’s not that easy for these mittens, because they start at the top of the fingers.
      To make them fingerless, you would have to skip right to row 8 or 9, & make the number of chains needed to get the stitch count.

      Hey! Now I might make a pattern for fingerless Scato mittens 😉

  5. Do you have a video showing how to do QB 2 tog? I don’t quite understand the written instructions for this.
    Thanks for any help you can provide me.

    • Hi,

      unfortunately I don’t have a video for it. But let me try to explain.
      You will work this stitch into two stitches.
      In the first stitch: draw up a loop, you have 2 loops on the hook
      In the second stitch: do the steps of a normal QB,
      then pull through all stitches.

      Hope this clarifies it.

      Janne
