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.

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.

They can be made with any yarn so you can make them as warm and thick as you want to.
