Crochet Warm Mittens Quickly

Are you looking for a quick crochet pattern to make a nice Christmas gift? Or do you just want to be prepared for the cold winter? In the both cases you are looking at the right article! I have crocheted the mittens for me and it took around 2 hours. It is not only quick but also easy to crochet: you need to know only a regular single stitch! Have fun following the instructions and keep your hands warm!

You will need:

  • 6 mm crochet hook
  • Turcouise yarn recommended for the hook (generally it is a good idea to use a bigger hook but if we want to have warm mittens, the hook should match the yarn. Otherwise the crocheting will be not tight enough and the wind can come through!)
  • Scissors

Abbreviations:

  • ch – chain
  • st – stitch
  • sc – single crochet
  • inc – 2 sc in one st (used to increase st number)
  • dec – 1 sc in two st (used to decrease st number)
  • X 6 – repeat 6 times
  • number of st in every round is indicated in brackets at the end

The first mitten is finished! Now follow the instructions again with one change – the Round 3 should look like that: sc in next 11 st, inc, sc in next st, inc, sc in next 10 st (26) and keep the order till the end of the mitten. It will be a right mitten!
