Crochet Mitten Patterns for the Entire Family
You know what I love to crochet the most? Mittens! I am ALWAYS needing an extra pair of mittens in the winter time where I live. Inevitably I misplace them, leave them in my other purse or the other car, and I always want to have an extra pair waiting so I can grab them a go with my kids (who are also always misplacing mittens - ha!). Whether you are a beginner or an experienced crocheter - there are free crochet mitten patterns you will love in this collection!
Crochet Mittens - Even if you never have before!
I know a lot of people are intimidated by trying to crochet mittens, but if you can crochet a hat - you can make mittens! A few pieces of advice: start with a simple pattern like my Perfect Fit Mittens, use an easy-to-work-with yarn, and keep track of the hook size you are using because tension matters! Watch the video tutorial below for the step-by-step instructions to make your first pair of mittens.
How to Crochet Basic Mittens for Beginners - Video Tutorial
1. Women’s Basic Bulky Mittens by Left in Knots: This free crochet pattern is beginner friendly, and these mittens make a great project for yourself, gifts or as a charity donation.
2. Noelle Mittens by Hooked on Tilly: I love all the texture you can create with this pattern using only HDC stitches. (I don't believe this pattern is available anymore)
3. Crochet Cabled Mittens by All About Ami: These mittens may looks tricky to make - but the designer includes TONS of step-by-step photos to help you out.
4. Cookies and Cream Mittens by Left in Knots: The Cookies and Cream Mittens are part of my Seven Days of Scarfie 2018 Collection and were designed to match a cowl and slouchy hat pattern available for free on my blog.
1. Snow Drops Mittens by Left in Knots: I wrote the Snow Drops Mittens pattern to match my Snow Drops Mod Scarf and Snow Drops Slouch Hat, and you will only need two cakes of your favorite Caron Cakes yarn to make all three! The Snow Drops Mittens are one of the most popular mitten patterns on my website.
2. Color Block Mittens by Whistle and Ivy: I love color block patterns because the color combinations you can use are endless. I love this bright combo used for these mittens.
3. Country Comfort Mittens by In Stitches Crochet by SL: This pattern uses super bulky yarn, so I bet these mittens work up in a flash! It’s also a free Ravelry download.
4. Wonderland Mittens by Michele Dobbins: This was one of the most unique crochet mitten designs I think I’ve ever seen and I LOVE them. I don’t often make myself crocheted pieces, but I may just have to give these a try.
1. Chroma Mittens by Left in Knots: These mittens are a bit lighter weight made with Lion Brand Mandala yarn (or any Category 3 yarn of your choice). The folded cuff is a nice touch!
2. Snowfall Mittens by Whistle and Ivy: I love the simple detail in these mittens, and I also love that the pattern is written in multiple sizes!
3. Morning Mittens by Make and Do Crew: If you want the look of knit mittens without actually knitting mittens - this is the crochet pattern for you! These are made with the waistcoat stitch and are so beautiful.
4. Snowball Mittens by Left in Knots: These textured mittens use the lemon peel stitch and one of my favorite yarns! I also love the ribbed cuff.
1. Velvet Mittens by Love. Life. Yarn.: Velvet yarn is so on trend right now, and I can’t even imagine how comfy these velvet mittens are. They are available in a crochet AND knit versions.
2. Frozen Fingers Mittens by Left in Knots: Take out one skein of yarn and make a pair of beautiful, warm mittens! The Frozen Fingers Mittens are a nice, basic mitten with a beautiful faux braid detail at the wrist.
3. Perfect Fit Mittens by Left in Knots: This pattern is a perfect starting point if you want to learn to crochet mittens. This pattern includes a complete video tutorial and is easily customizable.
4. Plaid Mittens by Whistle and Ivy: Bethany over at Whistle and Ivy is the queen of all things crocheted buffalo plaid. It’s no surprise that she has a pattern for these darling plaid mittens among her collection!
1. Warm Woolen Mittens by Cute and Cozy Crochet: If these mittens can help you survive winter days in Minnesota - they must be warm!
2. Star Gazer’s Mittens by Left in Knots: The Star Gazer's Mittens combine texture and warmth to give you a beautiful and functional pair of mittens for the coldest winter days.
3. Colorblock Mittens by Left in Knots: Colorblock crochet patterns are a great way to use up some of that scrap yarn in your stash without it looking like a “scrap” project. Mittens are a perfect “de-stash” or one skein crochet project. When you combine the two you get these modern Crochet Colorblock Mittens.
4. Happy Hands Mittens for Kids by Karen McKenna: Mitten patterns to fit kids are few and far between. This is a cute one!
1. Warm Wool-ish Mittens by Left in Knots: If you dislike crocheting BLO cuffs, this pattern is for you! Use post stitches to create the cuff in this free mitten pattern.
2. Scato Mittens by Joy of Motion: I love the accent color on the thumb of these mittens. They look like they would work up quickly, too.
3. Autumn Amore Mittens by Moogly: Red Heart Amore yarn is so soft and I bet these mittens are SO cozy. This pattern is available in 3 different sizes.
4. Neva Mittens by Whistle and Ivy: (this one is no longer a free pattern, but still fabulous!) These mittens show off the tapestry crochet design beautifully! I would love to see them in other color combos, too.
