Country Calm Fingerless Mitts

PATTERN INSPIRATION:

This pattern was created in regards to a crochet pattern I saw online last fall in one of my many quests of looking at patterns, so this is what I came up with based on what I saw.

SIZE: Medium hand

GAUGE: 4.5 stitches per inch

MATERIALS NEEDED:

Loom pick

Tapestry needle

Yarn Guide: this works excellent for maneuvering the working yarn when doing the Half Linen stitch you will have a better control of the working yarn

Row counter a must

Latch tool or a small crochet hook for doing the Loopy crochet bind off

Yarn: 1 Skein Worsted weight medium 4 yarn (In sample I used Bernat Hiking color Camo

1 Skein Worsted weight medium 4 yarn (In sample I used Red Heart color Hunter Green

1 Skein Worsted weight medium 4 yarn (In sample I used Red Heart color Dark Brown

Loom: Kiss 30 Peg Small Gauge Short 2-Way Adjustable Loom or the 60 Peg Small Gauge 2-Way Adjustable Loom using no washers makes this a 3/8” gauge loom

Finish With A Eyelet Edge knitting in the round

Deb’s edge: E-wrap around 3 times each peg, all pegs will have 3 loops.

Row 1: Knit 1 over 2.

Row 2: Purl all pegs, treating the 2 loops on each peg, as one.

Row 3: e-wrap all pegs and knit off.

Row 4: Transfer loop from peg 2, to 1, loop from peg 4 to 3 and so on, now only every other peg is occupied by 2 loops. E-wrap all pegs and knit off 2 over 1, the pegs that have 3 loops on them.

Row 5 to 7: e-wrap and knit off. (1 over 1)

Row 8 purl

 

Loopy crochet bind off:

Step One: Peg one with working yarn chain 9 stitches working on front side of pegs (ONLY)

Step Two: Place the 9 stitch chain on left side of the peg to face to the inside of loom go behind the pin like doing a u-stitch place chain on peg 2, K peg 2 (and for the repeat of row 2 on all other pegs once the 9 stitch chain is added to the peg)

Step 3: Peg 2 chain 9 repeat step 1 and 2 so all pegs remaining have a 9 stitch chain on each peg.
