Crochet Hand Holding Mitten

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.

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.
