About the Mystical Mitts

The Mystical Mitts are a simple pair of crochet mittens packed full of crochet stitch texture, luxury and style. They are a dream to make, simply seam a rectangle and add a thumbhole. A quick and easy pattern perfect for gifts and to keep.

The pattern is in both US and UK terms and includes instructions for Adult sizes Small, Medium and Large and are easily adjustable to fit most people.

I can see these as awesome stocking fillers this Christmas or as a great addition to your online crochet store – I’m more than happy for you to make and sell as many of these as you like! I’d love to know if you do, so make sure you join HanJan to let me know!

Yarn

I used King Cole Merino Blend 4 Ply to create my Mystical Mitts which is 100% wool, 50g/180m and so luxuriously soft to work with!

You will need 2 balls of your chosen colour for the fingerless mitts.

I used a type of yarn to make it feel lovely and luxurious and a great alternative would be to use Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk which is 75% Merino Wool, 20% Silk, 5% Cashmere, 50g/170m and will feel so soft and gentle on your skin!
