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.
When the weather starts to turn cold, it is time to whip up some warm accessories. We start noticing cold fingers, but we still need those hands to fuss with our phone. This is the perfect time to make a few stylish crochet fingerless mitts to keep our hands warm. Crochet fingerless mitts not only make a wonderful quick project, but can make a great last minute gift. You can even make it even more special by making the whole set! I have made a pair of matching boot cuffs to go with these fingerless mitts. My friend Donna from Naztazia even made the matching Winter Park Scarf (coming soon) with the same stitch pattern. Make all three pieces to look coordinated and stylish. Plus all the patterns have video tutorials!

These mitts have an interesting wavy pattern in two colors. They are crocheted flat and each in one piece. They are started at the thumb, which is worked flat and joined into a tube. Afterwards, the main part starts with an additional chain, and then is worked back and forth around the thumb. Working through the back loop only gives them an interesting texture. There are different instructions for the left-hand and right-hand mitt because second mitt mirrors the first one.
If you find it difficult to hold your little one's hand in the wintertime, you are not the only one. This designer found it so irritating to attempt that she created the Crochet Hand Holding Mitten for this issue. Now, after taking yours and your child's mittens off, you can keep your hands warm while keeping each other safe! If your son or daughter doesn't like the idea, try making the crochet mitten in a bright color, or better yet, a favorite color. Adding on fun appliques that your child would enjoy is also a great idea to promote wearing the mitten.
The fingerless mitts are such a doddle to make and take hardly any time at all. They are worked flat in rows and then joined at the side, just leaving a few stitches for the thumbhole and there you have it! The top section has a super easy cable stitch that you'll master in no time. The mitts will fit an average adult hand but you can just add or subtract a few stitches to the cuff and a couple more rows to make them bigger or smaller to suit you. If you ever need any help with sizing then please just let me know and I’d be more than happy to help you out.
