Crochet a pair of Warm Woolish Mittens with less than one skein of Lion Brand Scarfie yarn. These crochet mittens fit an average adult women and are your next crochet winter essential! Keep reading for the free crochet pattern.
Using Scarfie yarn for mittens made me realize just how cool this yarn is! It is labeled as a bulky yarn and can absolutely be used in that way. BUT it is so lofty that if you want to use a smaller hook with it, it squishes down and works up a lot like a worsted weight yarn as well! My conclusion, Scarfie yarn is versatile and hook size/tension is important!
