“Scitten” Designed by Linda Graimm
QUICK, EASY AND USE-ABLE!!
Size: The “scitten” (Scarf/mitten) shown fits an average woman’s reach. For a teen, you could use a smaller hook. For a man, you could chain 10 and work with 140 sts. For a toddler, work on 110 sts. The scarf is 4” wide and the length is 34”.
NOTE: Directions for toddler’s Scitten are in parentheses.
♥Thanks Pat Engle for testing this pattern for me!
Hdc = Half-double crochet hk = Hook Rep = Repeat

2. Turn work each row.
3. Hdc dec: YO, pull up a loop in this st, pull up a loop in next st, YO and pull through all 4 loops on hook.
Using MC throughout. Ch 130 (110). Starting in 3rd chain from hk, hdc in ea ch across. (128/108 sts)
Row 2: (Turn work each row) ch 2. Hdc in first 4 sts. Ch 12 for hand opening, sk 10 sts, hdc in ea st until you have 14 sts left, chain 12, sk 10 sts, hdc in last 4 sts. (128/108 sts)

FINISHING: Bring Mitten Part up behind one end of scarf and hand opening.
Using CC, and holding both thicknesses together, sc around entire scarf, sc’ing mitten parts so that they line up behind scarf and over hand openings(put 3 sc in ea corner) (you will be making a “pocket” for the hand to fit into the slit and rest inside.
FO. Weave in ends.
==Using a strand of MC, with running st or back st, sew remaining opening closed.
