Yes, these crochet mittens are fabulous!
They’re made with that same iconic buffalo plaid that looks so wonderful in so many garments and home items from shirts and coats and scarves to blankets and throws.
This particular Scottish tartan has been a fashion mainstay for generations and it looks especially lovely in these mittens which you could crochet for yourself and/or your gift-list recipients! And if you sell your crochet items at crafts fairs or online, these eye catching mittens could become your next bestseller!
This wonderful pattern is free! It’s by designer Bethany Dearden of Whistle & Ivy. You’ll find written patterns — a child size as well as adult size pattern — plus links to her excellent tutorials that will help you with any stitches that are unfamiliar to you, including the plaid stitch for which she gives a thorough rundown both with video and written instructions.
She’s also got a very active and helpful Facebook group where you can get even more guidance!
This pattern is part of Bethany’s 2017 Plaid Week series, and once you visit her blog you’ll find links to some of the other free patterns in the series. Truly something for everyone; a cowl, an infinity scarf, slippers, arm warmers and even a Christmas tree skirt. You’ve also got the option of purchasing the eBook ‘Plaid Collection Vol. 2 that has all the free patterns plus some bonus patterns — including an unbelievably adorable moose lovey — not available elsewhere.
