NotesConstructionThe oven mitt is worked in three parts:
- Hot pad #1 + Center panel + Hot pad #2 (all worked in one piece length ways)
- Glove panels x 2
Gauge notesI wanted the hot pad to be very thick and very tightly woven.Crocheting two strands of DK cotton yarn with a 5mm hook is not the easiest but it does give a very tight fabric.If you are finding it really difficult to crochet with this size hook consider going up a size, just be aware that your finished project will have different measurements.
Finished MeasurementsThe finished measurements are approx. 32” (L) x 6.5” (W).
This is based on working 2 strands of 100% cotton DK weight at the same time. You could easily use a heavier weight yarn as long as it is 100% cotton, but please note that your finished measurements could vary depending on the yarn choice.
Due to the nature of the different stitch patterns used – the single crochet thermal stitch (which is very tightly woven) and a simple sc/dc pattern (which is looser) – the hot pad and glove panels may end up to be slightly different in size. This is not a problem as the stitch counts on both still match up and once the panels have been joined it looks fine.
