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 for yourself!

The pattern includes instructions for adult sizes Small, Medium and Large and are easily adjustable to fit most people.

I can see these fingerless crochet gloves 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!

After years of designing fingerless crochet gloves and mittens, I’m delighted to say I’ve finally got around to making a full fingered pair! My herringbone moss stitch crochet mittens are such fun to make (but you can make a fingerless version too of course!).

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 crochet fingerless gloves.

I used a type of yarn to make these gloves feel lovely and luxurious. A great alternative would be to use We Crochet Alpaca Cloud 100% Superfine Alpaca, 200yds/50g that will feel so soft and gentle on your skin!

Also, does "3rd loop" mean the back post? Some people use "back loop" and "back post" interchangeably, so this is confusing. I want to make sure - if I ever figure out how to do row 2 - that I'm doing it correctly. A video would greatly help!

Row 2 - What does "Join yarn for 1st stitch of previous row" mean? I've never seen that before in any pattern instructions and I can't figure it out. Also, are there measurements for the sizes of these gloves? I'm making Medium, but they seem awfully big if the first row is supposed to be a circumference. I need help!

I would LOVE to make these! I've made scarves, hats, afghans and a few other items, but try as I might, I do NOT find these "beginner friendly", unfortunately. I've only been crocheting for about 6 months, and I'm usually pretty good at understanding pattern directions and reading charts, but these really intimidate me! Please tell me there's a video!?
