Regardless of your motivation for making them, these crochet mittens will be a cozy addition to any winter wardobe.

    This crochet mittens pattern was designed using Patons Norse yarn. This yarn is a blended yarn comprised of 54% arcylic, 28% wool and 18% polyester. It has a brushed halo effect which gives these crochet mittens their fuzzy appearance. The halo does make seeing the stitches a bit more difficult than normal but they aren’t impossible to see and you can definitely feel the stitches. This pattern uses only a single ball of Patons Norse Yarn!

    The Norse Crochet Mittens are worked from the top-down (fingertips to wrist) in joined rounds. Because of the halo effect of the yarn, I recommend utilizing a stitch marker to mark the beginning of every round even though you won’t be working in a continuous spiral. After working the top of the mitten to the knuckles, we’ll add on the opening for the thumb. Then we’ll work some shaping to taper the mitten to the wrist and then the ribbed cuff is added.

    After completing the body of the mitten, the thumb is added. This is done by attaching your yarn to the opening we created for the mitten and crocheting around that hole. The thumb is worked from the base up with some basic tapering worked up to the tip. Then the tip of the thumb is sewn closed and the ends are woven in. That’s it!

    Mommy’s Go-To Fingerless Gloves Crochet Pattern

    It has been a crazy couple of weeks!  It’s been so busy with the 30 Days of Cozy promotion going on and right in the middle of the promotion, my husband had a business trip to Halifax and I’ve been alone with both kids.   I’ve also been working away on a few new patterns for you as well so stay tuned!  This week’s free crochet pattern is Mommy’s Go-To Fingerless Gloves.

    My awesome husband brought me back this beautiful yarn from his trip.  It’s made by the Mineville Wool Project which is a local Halifax yarn dyer.  I’m so lucky that he supports my crazy yarn addiction.  I can’t wait to get my hooks into these babies.  If you have any suggestions on what I should make with this yarn, leave me a comment below.  I’m having a hard time deciding!

    I must confess: I lose A LOT of gloves.  I’m almost on par with my little one who loses mittens almost as fast as I can make and buy them.  I must also confess that I am a little particular when it comes to my gloves.  I don’t like the tops of the gloves to be too long because they can sometimes stretch out and look sloppy.  My preference is fingerless gloves so I can zip up zippers, tie up shoes and text with ease.

    So Mommy’s Go-To Fingerless Gloves were born out of my need for a cute and quick pair of fingerless gloves.  They are super quick to make so you can replace those lost gloves in a flash but you don’t have to substitute your cuteness factor.  This is also a beginner friendly pattern.  If you sell your crochet, these are great since you can make a pair in well under an hour.  The pattern is easily adaptable so if you need/want the tops or bottoms to be a bit longer, just add a few rows.  So without further ado, let’s get to that pattern!
