Crochet mittens pattern collection that I have carefully put together for you! It contains 10 amazing crochet mittens designs from the best designers around.
I remember wearing crochet mittens as a child! They literally take me right back to my childhood. I used to wear them all the time. Fond memories of large snow clumps stuck to the mittens as we were building a snowman.
One thing I know, they have kept me super warm and comfortable. I love how easy it is to put them on and take them off as opposed to standard gloves! I find them especially useful for kids and so time saving too!
Those little fingers are super hard to navigate into standard gloves. Hence why, I have worn mittens as a child I suppose. My mum was a great knitter and crocheter so we have always had the warmest and comfiest pair of mittens!
I have recently been on a hunt for a comfy pair of mittens and have found so many adorable ones. It would be a real shame to keep all these beautiful designs to myself. So, I have rounded them up and will share my top crochet mittens picks with you!
10 Free Crochet Mittens Pattern Collection
Here are some of my absolute favourite crochet mittens from around the internet. They are all easy to make and will keep your fingers nice and toasty.
I have also picked a couple of patterns for men as their hands will be slightly larger. However, you can adjust all these crochet mittens in size. It will greatly depend on the way the mittens are constructed, however they all can be adjusted.
You can increase the width by adding a few stitches to the round. To make them longer, you can simply work additional rounds. These are basic instructions you can use if you feel confident adjusting patterns.
In terms of yarn, I would recommend using yarn that is durable. As you can imagine there will be a lot of wear and tear on your crochet mittens. Yarn that is anti-pilling and easy to wash would be a great start. Each pattern will suggest a yarn to use. However, if the suggested yarn is out of your price range or it is not available in your country, do not forget to use yarnsub.com .
This is a great website you can use to find alternative yarns that are the best match for yarn used in pattern. The website analyses fibre content, weight, yardage per weight and so many other qualities to suggest as close match as possible.
Explorer’s Crochet Mittens
Whether you are looking for a great crochet present for dad, husband or brother this men’s mittens crochet pattern will be a life saver! I have used two different colours for these men’s crochet mittens. This makes it a great pattern where you can combine the recipient’s favourite colours. If they are a football fan, you can also use their favourite club’s colours.
The men’s mittens crochet pattern uses interlocking crochet technique. This is a stepping stone to the ever popular mosaic crochet. This technique creates a very stretchy fabric width and lengthways. So it is very forgiving when it comes to slight differences in sizes. Men’s Mittens Crochet Pattern – Free Explorer Mittens is available on my blog.
