Hello all, it's been a while since I've posted but I'm glad to be back!

I just taught myself to crochet (with the help of the internet) last month and these mittens are one of my first projects. I crocheted them for my friend Maggie, her favorite color is purple and she loves mittens. Also, sorry this is the only photo I have, I realized I hadn't taken any photos when I was already at the P.O. so I just took a quick shot with my phone.

I like the way the thumb turned out on the mitten on the right better than the other. When I was reading about how to make thumbs, there were several techniques I came across. I didn't really like any directions I found so I just did my own idea and made them in rounds and decreased when the thumb was long enough until it closed off. Any ideas/pointers on crocheting thumbs from seasoned crocheters?


If you are not vigilant and demanding of your talent everyday, you will slowly become what you hate.

I've crocheted a lot in the past, but never dared try mittens, so kudos for you work, they look great.  Lucky friend.
