For those of you who are unfamiliar with my Easy-On Mittens, these mittens have a wrist closure option which allows you to open and close the mitten at the wrist. I first designed these mittens for my son because he was so wiggly and I swear he had fingers sticking out all over the place - trying to get mittens on his hands was such a challenge and he always pulled them off as fast as I could get them on. These mittens open at the wrist so you can easily pop the hand into the mitten itself (not getting stuck on the narrower cuff part) and once the hand is inside you can button up the wrist closure and the hand stays inside the mitten ;) You can wear the closure on the underside of your wrist (which is how I did Drew's so he wouldn't try to undo the buttons) or on top - which is how Darla liked to wear hers because she thought they looked ‘pretty’ that way. You can alternately whip stitch the cuff closed for a regular pair of mittens - this is totally up to you! These mittens have been requested for many reasons - one of which is for individuals in Nursing Homes. The wrist closure allows caregivers to slide the mittens onto the resident’s hands more easily (and less painfully) and then the wrist closure can be button to ensure the mitten stays in place once on.
Knit-Like Gloves with Flying Hearts
These Knit-like Gloves with flying hearts can also be seen as gloves with flames. They are crocheted with the waistcoat stitch which is also known as the crochet knit stitch. The waistcoat stitch is a thick stitch which allows you to keep your hands warm when wearing them. The gloves are in adult size only, but can easily be adjusted to any size you wish. The gloves are made with 2 different colored yarn that make you feel very warm and cozy.
Fireside Mittens Free Crochet Pattern
"The Fireside Mittens is a super easy crochet mittens pattern. You only need to know the single crochet, double crochet, and chain stitch. I've replaced the classic ribbed cuff by an elegant eyelet design to give these easy crochet mittens more personality. The pattern is available in 3 sizes and explains how to adapt to any hand. These mittens are not the usual thick bulky mittens but a thinner, more elegant version you can wear in the city on your way to work or on a date in the park. Don't get me wrong these are nice and warm and will keep your hands toastie. But they're also refined and elegant."
