The Coffee Bean Mittens are warm, beautifully textured and easy to make with this free crochet pattern.
Crochet Coffee Bean Mittens using the Bean Stitch
I just had to make the Coffee Bean Mittens after you all loved the Coffee Bean Beanie and Coffee Bean Infinity Scarf so much. These mittens start with a basic mitten construction and then have a beautiful, textured cuff made from bean stitches.
These adult sized mittens can easily be adjusted in length, and you can even add more rows to the cuff if you just can’t get enough of the bean stitch.

Yarn Substitutes for Scarfie Yarn
Ever since I started Seven Days of Scarfie, I’ve been asked a lot about yarn that can be substituted when Scarfie isn’t available or wool is an issue. The good news is that you can substitute almost any worsted weight yarn or light Category 5 yarn for this pattern! Since scarves aren’t particularly fitted you don’t even need to worry about gauge. Just add or subtract length as desired if your yarn is a different weight category. If you are looking for yarn similar to Lion Brand Scarfie yarn, check out my list of recommended substitutes here.
