What is better than a good oven mitt? A good oven mitt that lets you use both hands! No more trying to lift heavy dishes with one hand, or scrambling for a second hot pad – this crochet two-handed oven mitt is all you will ever need.

This crochet oven mitt would make a perfect holiday gift for friends and family, but I’m kind of betting that when you see how useful it is you might just want to keep it for yourself ๐Ÿ™‚

There are two components to the oven mitt, each crocheted with a different stitch pattern designed to suit their purpose:

  1. Two hot pads – these are worked with the Single Crochet Thermal Stitch which gives a durable, thick fabric – ain’t no heat getting through these hot pads!
  2. The center panel and gloves – the center panel joins the hot pads together and the a glove lays over the top of each hot pad. These are all crocheted with a simple alternating dc/sc pattern

The panels are joined using the Reverse sc stitch (aka Crab Stitch) so there is no seaming at all!

For this crochet oven mitt I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK which I have used to make everything from pouches to garments over the last few months. This super durable yarn is available in 51 different shades so there’s a pretty good chance you’ll find something you like ๐Ÿ™‚

For this pattern I decided to work 2 strands of the yarn together, just to ensure that the finished product was extra durable and safe for handling hot dishes straight out of the oven.

Notes (please read before starting!)

Construction

The oven mitt is worked in three parts:

  1. Hot pad #1 + Center panel + Hot pad #2 (all worked in one piece length ways)
  2. Glove panels x 2

No seaming is required; the panels are joined at the end using the Reverse SC stitch (also known as Crab Stitch โ€“ see Special Stitches)

Gauge notes

I 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.

Sizing

The finished measurements are approx. 32โ€ (L) x 6.5โ€ (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 โ€“ the single crochet thermal stitch (which is very tightly woven) and a simple sc/dc pattern (which is looser) โ€“ 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.

Pattern Notes

  • Ch 1 at the start of each sc row does not count as one stitch.
  • Ch 2 at the start of each sc/dc row does count as one stitch (hdc)
  • The stitch count for each round is given in [] at the end of the round. If no stitch count is indicated then the count is the same as for the previous row
  • When changing color, cut the unused strand unless otherwise indicated

Finished Measurements

Approx. 32โ€ (L) x 6.5โ€ (W)

Gauge

16 sts x 28 rows of thermal sc stitch pattern (see Special Stitches) = 4โ€ x 4โ€ (10 cm x 10 cm)

16 sts x 12 rows of alternating dc/sc stitch = 4โ€ x 4โ€ (10 cm x 10 cm)

Materials

Hook: 5mm/H-8 crochet hook (or hook needed to meet gauge)

Misc: Yarn Needle for weaving in ends

Yarn: 100% cotton yarn – it is essential that you don’t use anything else other than 100% cotton in this project.

Special Stitches

Single Crochet Thermal Stitch

Please check out my Single Crochet Thermal Stitch tutorial (with photos) for step by step instructions on how to crochet this stitch

Reverse SC (a.k.a. Crab Stitch)

This stitch is simply a single crochet worked from left to right instead of right to left. It is a bit tricky at first but gets much easier once you have done a few stitches.

Step 1: Ch 1, tilt your hook towards you and insert it into the next stitch to the right

Step 2: Yarn over, pull up a loop (your two loops on the hook will be twisted)

Step 3: Yarn over and pull through both loops as for a regular sc

Step 4: Continue working from left to right; insert hook into next stitch to the right, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over again and pull through both loops to complete the sc

Step 5: If working the reverse single crochet as a border, stop at your starting ch 1 and sl st to the starting ch

Written Pattern

First, make the Hot Pad panel + Center panel + another Hot Pad panel (all crocheted in one piece length ways)

The Hot Pad panels are crocheted using the Single Crochet Thermal Stitch (see Special Stitches), changing to a simple SC/DC stitch pattern for the Center panel.

NB: Always work holding two strands together

HOT PAD #1

Row 1: Using 2 strands of COLOR 1, ch 17, sk first ch, sc in bottom bump of each ch across, turn [16]

Inc Row 2: Ch 1, Insert hook into back loop AND corresponding parallel loop from the chain row, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through both loops to complete the sc, sc into the same two loops again {inc. made}. Sc in each st across {always working in back loop and chain loop}, sc 2 times in final st, turn [18]

Row 3: ch 1, sc in each st across {working in back loop and front loop of previous row}, turn [18]

Inc Row 4: Repeat Inc Row 2 [20]

Row 5-8: Repeat Row 3 and Inc Row 4 [2 times] [24]

Row 9: Repeat Row 3. On last st, with two loops remaining on hook, change to COLOR 2 for one strand only  [24]

Row 10: Using one strand of C1 and one strand of C2, ch 1, sc in each st across {as always through back loop and parallel front loop}, turn [24]

Row 3-9: Repeat Row 2. On last st, change from C4 to C3 so that you are holding 2 strands of C3

Row 10: Ch 2, using 2 strands of C3, sc in each st across {as always through back loop and parallel front loop}, turn

Row 11-18: Repeat Row 10. On last st of Row 17, change from C3 to C2 on one strand only

Row 19: Ch 1, using one strand of C2 and one strand of C3, sc in each st across {as always through back loop and parallel front loop}, turn

Row 20-27: Repeat Row 19. On last st of Row 26, change from C3 to C2 so that you are holding 2 strands of C2

Row 28: Ch 1, using 2 strands of C2, sc in each st across {as always through back loop and parallel front loop}, turn

Row 29-36: Repeat Row 27. On last st of Row 35, change from C2 to C1 on one strand only

GLOVE PANEL #2

Repeat as for GLOVE PANEL #1 but do not fasten off.

FINISHING

Weave in any ends on the hot pad panels.

Notes:

  • Both sides are identical so you can choose any side to be the โ€˜right sideโ€™
  • The Glove Panels will be probably be a bit wider than the hot pads due to the nature of the different stitch patterns but this is not a problem โ€“ the stitch count will match up and it will look fine once panels have been joined together.

Join Panels

Start with Glove Panel 2 as it has not been fastened off.

Lay any one of the hot pads flat so that you are looking at the โ€˜wrong sideโ€™ (remember, you can choose any side to be the right and wrong side)

Lay Glove Panel 2 on top of the hot pad so that the left hand curved edges are touching (see picture ->)

Pin both pieces together to stop any movement while you are joining them.

Two crochet panels - one on top of the other

Working from left to right, insert hook through both edges and complete a reverse single crochet (see Special Stitches if you need a reminder)

Reverse Single Crochet - 3 views of one stitch

Continuing to work from left to right, reverse sc into each st across to join both panels together

Single Crochet Thermal Stitch - one row front and back views

Continue joining the edges of both panels using reverse sc.

When you reach the Center panel, simply reverse sc the length of the panel until you reach the second hot pad.

Lay Glove Panel #1 on top of Hot Pad #2 and join them with reverse sc. Continue working all the way around the edge until both Glove Panels have been attached.

When you get back to the start, sl st to the top of the very first reverse sc.

Fasten off and turn that glove inside out to weave in the tail.

All done!
