Baby Candy Corn Mittens with iCord
Created By: Jessie Brooks
Pattern Source: other:

My daughter-in-law mentioned she'd like to make some mittens for my newest grandson & I tried to show her how to do a chain-based mitten. It wasn't very clear to her 'cause she's not an experienced "hooker" yet. So I decided to make a pair one night when I had researched making iCords. These are the result. The stitches are all sc and dc & I began w/ a 4ch, and began by doing 3sc in the loop on one SIDE of the 2nd ch loop from the hook, then 1sc on that same side loop, then 3sc on the loop of the same side then on the opposite side loop of that ch, do 3sc, 1sc on the next chain's loop of that side and, finally, 3sc on the first chain's loop of that same side, sl st to the first ch. Basically, you've gone around in an oval and should have EIGHT st around the oval. From that point on, sc in the colors you want (I chose Lemon, Orange, Pumpkin in that order to make it autumn-y
AND Halloween-y at the same time =D). For the iCord, here's the video: I made a certain length of cord to attach to the sleeve w/ a diaper pin & a simple crochet chain for the section to thread through the dcs at wrist-level. I also added a loop (an extended picot w/ 5 sts) through which I threaded the end of the chain so it wouldn't come loose.
