I made myself a pair of mittons, who would've thought it would be so easy!







This was kind of a trial and error type of thing, I made one mitten that looked bad, and then made the next two by not doing the same mistakes again... I used a #7 hook, chain stichet 28 and made a circle. Then, single crochet around and around for the wrist, increased with abt 6 when I reached the hand. When I came to the thumb, I chain stitched 5 and skipped 5 'loops' on the hand part before I  fastened it again and continued until the mitten was long enough. Deacreased by skipping every other 'loop', did one round, decreased again and tied it all together. For the thumb part, I crocheted around the hole that was left there, untill it was long enough, decreased by skipping every other 'loop' and tied it all together. So easy! And the result was great!

They match my purse, which matches my winter coat! Yay!




Thanks for looking, all comments welcome:D

Nice looking pair of mitts!

I never thought it would be so easy to crochet a pair, though I guess I never sat down and thought about it because I instantly put the idea of crocheting mitts to the side as I thought that they would be too difficult!

Wow, that's exactly what i've been to scared/lazy to try. I just finished some fingerless gloves, but I'm definately going to try this...thanks for the inspiration.   Grin

I am curious though if they are easy to get on and off.  I started to make a wristwarmer/glove by crocheting in the round, but it was very tight and I had some trouble getting my hand through the wrist part.

A lot of patterns I've seen online has the hand part done seperate from the wrist, and the wrist part done in the back loop to mimic the ribbing that knitted mitts have. Sure it looks a bit differnet, but it works great.

Look around on here for "Rose mist" wrist warmer or fingerless glove. It's a great and easy pattern ( I made a pair for grandma for christmas) and it's plenty stretchy.


*Sorry about the threadjack!*

Beautyproof, your mittens look great, and the purse is so cute! I love the lining fabric, and mine never looks that good Sad

Thank you Cheesy

That's exactly what I thought too...I thought knitting or crocheting mitts would be waaay too complicated, but I happened to look at a recipe, and after not managing it, I made up my own!

I fitted the mitts to my wrists, the first one I made was too tight, so I just made it bigger. It hasn't been cold enought to actually use them yet, but just trying them on, they fit well and are easy to take on and off.

Thanks, I always keep looking in my purse, just to flash the nice lining, hehehe Cheesy 

Maybe knitting the wrist part in ribbing and then crocheting the rest would look good too...I'm gonna search for that pattern!
