Mystery Mitt: Second clue

how did everyone do with the first clue? it should look like this.. I chained 32 which measures about 7 inches.
this is where it might get a little tricky for the newbies. but if I can do it... so can you. the special stitches are not hard. I found few videos on youtube to help you out if you are a visual person.

The next few stitches will help you determine if you want to use a multi colored yarn or keep the solid.

Special Stitches:
Puff Stitch (pst) : ( yarn over, insert hook in next stitch to be worked, and draw up a loop to height of dc) 4 times; yo  and draw through all 9 loops on hook. pst made. find video HERE

Front Post Double Crochet (FPdc): yo, insert hook from front to back to front around post of specified stitch and draw up a loop; (yo, and draw through 2 loops on the hook) twice. FPdc made. find video HERE

follow my pattern not the video. I added the videos for the stitch.

Pattern

rows 1 and 2 can be found HERE.

FGF:Mystery Mitt First Clue

Hey all... are we ready to get crocheting? :)

As I mentioned in the ravelry group , you will need a size G hook and worsted weight yarn/10ply . you'll need less than 150 yards.
Using a solid color will work best to see the special stitches, but its up to you. 

this pattern has special stitches that I will walk you through, for you newbies. Don't be alarmed. They are very simple. 

Now for the pattern......

ch. multiples of 2 ( to fit your wrist ) DO NOT JOIN. ( i chained 32)

row 1: sc (single crochet) in the 2nd chain from hook. and in each remaining ch to end. chain 2(counts as dc for the following row.) turn. ( 31 sts)

row 2: dc (double crochet) in each st (stitch) to end. chain 3. turn  (31 sts)




next clue will be posted June 8th ................
