Sloe Mittens

Sale price$5.99

The trick to great crochet mittens is getting the stitch for the hands right. It needs to be warm enough so that your fingers aren’t sticking out through the natural holes in crochet but stretchy enough to allow for movement. These mittens are made from linked trebles, creating a solid fabric for the coldest days.

Difficulty Rating

Skills Needed
Basic crochet stitches, working in rounds, raised (post) stitches, decreasing, increasing.

The mittens start at the top, with a chain where linked stitches are worked into both sides to create an oval shape, with increases worked at each side. The seam on these mittens contains an increase and decrease to minimize the unsightly traveling join that can happen with this stitch.
