Manoplas del Lago


Manoplas del Lago (Lake Mittens)

by Sally’s Backyard

These mittens, like the matching scarf, were inspired by the lovely Araucania Panguipulli yarn. The construction of these fingerless mitts leaves a nice scalloped edge around the fingers and the wrist.


“J” hook

Worsted weight yarn of choice (I used Araucania Panguipulli, 100% merino wool, 197 yd/skein, using only a very small amount for this project).

Tapestry needle, to weave in ends

Terms Used:

ch = chain

sc = single crochet

dc = double crochet

sp = space

st = stitch


(Make 2)

Ch 22.

Row 1: 1dc in 4th ch from hook, ch 2, 1 sc in same ch as last dc. *skip 2 ch (2dc, ch2, 1sc) in next ch 2 sp, repeat from * to end of row. Turn.

Row 2: Ch 3, sk first sc (1dc, ch 2, 1sc) in first ch 2 sp, *skip (2 dc and 1 sc), (2dc, ch 2, 1 sc) in next ch 2 sp, repeat form * to end of row. Turn.

Repeat Row 2 until you reach 7” in length.

Final row: Sc in each st and ch sp across. Leave a yarn tail long enough to stitch for thumb hole.

Fold piece in half, so both sc ends meet. Whipstitch together approx. 2” up from the bottom and approx. 2” from the top to form the thumb hole. This can vary depending on your hand size. Finish off and weave in ends.
