FAIR ISLE CROCHET/KNIT SNOW HEART MITTENS AND FINGERLESS GLOVES

Another design special made for the Snow Heart pattern!
Earlier published patterns with the same motifs; Snow Heart Slippers, and Snow Heart Cap.

The crochet-pattern for the Snow Heart Mittens and Fingerless Gloves, gives you two possibilities; The mittens with thumbs, or simple fingerless gloves (handwarmers), a great approach to the crochet/knit method.

If you still have not tried to knit with your hook, I strongly recommend it!
The stitch has several names: Split Single Crochet (Ssc), Waistcoat Stitch, and Center Single Crochet (Csc). 

Also called Fair Isle Stitch, due to the perfect knit-look this stitch create, and the endless possibilities to work stranded, colored patterns with it. Just like in knitting!

HOW IS THIS STITCH DONE?


Insert the hook into the middle of the sc, between the two vertical "legs", tilt the hook slightly to the right, and the tip will find it's way through the st-loops.
See Annie's public video for how it's done, on the round, as well as forth and back.
Note that the most distinct knit-stitch will appear worked on the round.

The simple hand-warmers.

The mittens with thumb.

Detail of the heart-pattern.

So pretty!

Doesn't this mitten give a warm and  heartly winter-night mood!
