These Fabulous Knit-Like Crochet Mittens Are Super Easy! – [FREE Pattern]
You won’t believe these mittens weren’t knitted!
Yes, it’s true. The texture and the stitching look like knitting! But the key here is the waistcoat crochet stitch (a.k.a. center single crochet stitch) that gives these warm and cozy mittens their amazing texture.
Not only are they beautiful, but they’re quite functional! There are times when we really do need the warmth that comes not from slinky gloves or fingerless mitts but classic, old-fashioned iconic mittens from days gone by.
If you’re not a knitter or, if you’re a crocheter just who likes innovative patterns that mimic knitting, you’ll definitely want to add this one to your list! And speaking of lists, there just might be a person or two (or three or four!) who’d love to receive this as a gift!
This is a fantastic pattern! And it’s free, too! It’s by the always-innovative crochet designer Jess of Make & Do Crew. She recommends chunky wool yarn and will tell you the precise brand and all the specs you need — hook size and what have you. You’ll also find some valuable tips on how to work with wool yarn!
If you’re not familiar with the waistcoat crochet stitch (a.k.a. center single crochet stitch), no worries as Jess gives you a link to an excellent written and video tutorial. Additionally you can check out another fantastic YouTube tutorial (embedded below), if you enjoy learning new techniques via video. There’s a right-handed and a left-handed version and both are below!
