Equally Pretty Alpaca Mittens

As promised here is the pattern for the matching mittens to the hat I published last week. 

 For these mittens you should hold 2 strands together whilst working. For the whole set you need 2 balls of each colour. 

1. Chain 42. Hdc into third chain from hook and all chains to end. Ss into the first hdc of the round. (40)

2. Chain 2. Hdc into all stitches.
3. Chain 3. Dc in all stitches around.
4. Chain 3. Dc in all stitches around.

Fasten off and change to green yarn.

5. Chain 3. Dc in all stitches around.
6. Chain 3. Dc in first stitch, *chain 2 (skip 2) and dc in the next 2*. Repeat until you reach the last ch 2, skip 2 then sc in the last stitch of the round. Ss into first dc.
7. For the next round ss across the dc to the first ch2 space, then chain 3 and dc onto the ch 2 space. *Chain 2 then sc 2 times onto the next ch 2 space*. Repeat to end, but instead of making the final chain 2 and slip stitching to close the round, instead you should stop at the last 2dc. Turn your work.
8. Chain 3, the dc until the first dc of the last row (you should have 38dc stitches).

Fasten off and change to blue yarn.

9. Chain 3. Dc in all stitches to end, then chain 2 and ss into the first dc of the round.
10. Ss across two more dc’s, then chain 3 and dc into the next stitch. *Chain 2 (skip 2) then sc 2 times onto the next 2 stitches*. Repeat to end. Chain 2 more and ss into the first dc stitch.
11. For the next round ss across the dc to the first ch2 space, then chain 3 and dc onto the ch 2 space. *Chain 2 then sc 2 times onto the next ch 2 space*. Repeat to end. Chain 2 and ss into first dc.
12. Chain 3. Dc in all stitches around.

Fasten off an change to grey yarn.

13. Chain 3. Dc in all stitches around.
14. Chain 3. Dc in all stitches around.
15. Chain 3. Sc in all stitches around.
16. Chain 3. Sc in all stitches around.

Finally, for the thumb holes, gind the hole in the side of the mitten from row 7 to 11. Attatch yarn and Sc twice into each dc post around for 20 Sc. Ss into the first. Cjain 1 and then complete another row of 20 Sc. Fasten off and weave in all ends. Then you are done!

These mittens are super warm. I wore the set for bonfire night this year and they were lovely and snuggly! You can find the plttern for the matching hat here.
