Basic Men's Mittens

Crochet a pair of men's mittens using this easy to follow pattern complete with a video tutorial. This pattern uses a bulky weight yarn to work up quickly and is an easy level pattern. The only techniques you need to know to crochet these mittens are chaining and single crochet. This project starts at the cuff, which is worked sideways, then connected and the thumb shaping begins. The thumb stitches are skipped to work the rest of the hand and, finally, the thumb is worked. Makes a wonderful gift!

Velvet Mittens

The Velvet Mittens pattern is an easy to crochet pattern using Bernat Velvet that includes a full video tutorial. This pattern also includes a knit version of the mittens. The mittens are created entirely out of single crochet, starting with the cuff. The cuff is worked side to side in the back loops only to give a ribbed effect, then the ribbing is turned and the thumb shaping begins. After increasing for the thumb, the thumb stitches are left unworked while working the rest of the hand, then picked up again at the end.

Easy-On Mitts

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.

Basic Mittens

Use one skein of your favorite worsted or aran weight yarn to create this basic pair of crochet mittens that can be customized any way you like. The mittens are created from the bottom up, starting with a size H hook and the ribbing. Then, the work is turned and the rest of the mitten is crocheted in the round using a size I hook. The skills you need for this project are working in the round, single crochet, chaining, and how to increase and decrease in sc.

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."
