This crochet mittens pattern is a perfect pattern for so many occasions and reasons. It’s great for crochet gift ideas, great for donating in the winters, great for craft fair and online crochet sellers. It’s just all around a fantastic pattern to have in your back pocket.
The crochet mittens pattern works up really quick, and it doesn’t require a ton of yarn. Which is another reason it’s great for crochet gift ideas. You could probably make a couple pairs from your scrap yarn even.
It’s also super beginner friendly, so it’s a great first project after your granny square experiments and before your first cardigan. I’d personally go for these before the granny squares for a newbie, as their just as easy and you have something immediately useful instead of a bunch of pot holders lol.
They’re a sort of one size fits most for the ladies, and will fit some for the fellas, kids etc. They have enough stretch to accommodate lager hands for sure.
