    I really loved the look of these mittens and tried the pattern today…it doesn’t work out at all….I don’t see why you would decrease 10 stitches between rows 36-37….it would leave a huge gap..this is not the thumb opening part. I’d like to say that I’ve been crocheting for over 30 years and have successfully made many items clothing, etc. for experienced crocheters, so it’s not like I don’t follow patterns well…this simply doesn’t work out and looked nothing like the picture either….


  2. Do not decrease the 10 stitches on Row 37……….skip over them……the 10 stitches will be picked up later and create the rest of the thumb. On Rnd 37……sc in the first 13sc……..then do not work any stitches in the next 10 sc, insert your hook in the next sc and continue on……
    Rnd. 37: sc in first 13 sc, skip next 10 sc, sc in next sc, fpdc in next 11 st, sc in next sc, join to beginning sc, ch1, do not turn. 26st

    Hope this helps…..Carol

    I did understand why you would skip the 10 stitches on row 37, this would create the thumb later on. I did get confused on row 36 as you would only be working part of the row… read row 36…..according to the pattern you’re only working 22 stitches before joining to the beginning chain and still ending up with 36 stitches…..that was the gap I was speaking of if you worked the row according to the pattern……


  4. Gottcha! My apologies. There’s a typo-should read: Rnd. 36: sc in first 13 sc, 2sc in next sc, sc in next 6 sc, 2sc in next sc, sc in next 13 st, join to beginning sc, ch1, do not turn. 36sc
    Thanks for the heads up on this!

    Cheers for this mitten pattern. I am not using it for an American Girl doll but it is perfect for the anime amigurumi I am making :)


  6. Thanks! This pattern is actually child size. I do have some free “toy” size patterns available if you need it really small…….

  7. narf77 Says:

    Thank you for replying. I am most grateful for the pattern that you shared as if it wasn’t for generous people like you, who share patterns for free, I wouldn’t have learned most of what I know. I am making a creature called “Teddy” from an anime series who looks like a cross between Captain America and a very large Teddy bear. He has a small “human” inside him. I have been procrastinating for a while as its a completely customised job and my first attempt at freestyling crochet. I truly appreciate your sharing your pattern with us all and just wanted you to know that your efforts are incredibly appreciated by people like me out here. You are going to make a little boy very happy :).


  8. That sounds really cool! Thank you so much for your very kind words. It made my day!

  9. narf77 Says:

    Your mitten pattern did the same thing for me. We read about how negative social media is every day but this is a very good example of how it is wonderful :)

  10. narf77 Says:

    I thought I had better clarify my last comment, what I meant was I live in Tasmania in Australia and being able to find out what I want to find out at the tap of a keyboard is a most awesome thing and I get to connect with people all over the world in the process :)


  11. Social media can be such a wonderful thing when bringing neighbors closer!
