If you have been wanting to learn how to crochet mittens that are full of texture and style then you are in the right place!
These mittens for children and adults are oh so cozy and absolutely perfect for keeping little (and large!) hands warm during the winter.
I absolutely adore the texture in these mitts thanks to the front post and back post stitches. These crochet stitches might take a little getting used to (as instead of working into the top of the stitch below, we’re going to be working around the post of it instead). But after a little bit of practice you’ll be flying along (and you’ll have mastered 2 new stitches!)
Finished Sizes: This mittens pattern is written for 8 sizes from Baby up to Adult XL
- This pattern calls for any #3/DK/Light weight yarn.
- I used WeCrochet Alpaca Cloud DK, which made from 100% premium grade alpaca
- Some great alternatives (in a selection of different fibers) for your crochet mittens include:
- Paintbox Yarns Simply DK (100% Acrylic)
- Swish DK (100% Fine Superwash Merino Wool)
- King Cole Baby Alpaca DK (100% Baby Alpaca)
- For my mittens, I used two different hook sizes. For the ribbed cuff I used a 3.5mm (E-4) crochet hook, and for the main body of the mitten I used a 4.5mm (US 7) crochet hook.
