About the Pink Puff Stitch Crochet Mittens

I seem to have a thing this year with fingerless mittens! I just love making them as gifts as they are so quick and easy, take up hardly any yarn and are pretty much one size fits all, what’s not to love?!

These cute puff stitch ones are made to fit an average adult size hand with plenty of stretch for comfort. Perfect as a quick crochet gift or as a treat for yourself. 

The crochet puff stitch used in the pattern makes it an intermediate level but once you have the hang of that stitch you’ll have no problems with the rest at all.

They are worked in rows so that you can easily adjust the length and width of the crochet mittens and then seamed at the wide and a cuff added after.

Other Quick and Easy Crochet Mitten Patterns

If you love making crochet mittens and gloves as much as me then here are a few of my other designs you might enjoy.

Yarn

To make the Puff Stitch Crochet Mittens I used Eden Cottage Bowland DK which is 100% British Wool, 100g/220m and feels so luxurious to work with. I used 1 skein of Briar Rose to make a pair of mittens.

Unfortunately, I can’t find the exact yarn anymore so here are a couple of love alternatives that you might like to try:

A fabulous luxury yarn is Capra DK by WeCrochet is 85% fine merino, 15% cashmere, 123yds/50g so 2 balls would be great for pair of mittens and it comes in the most beautiful colours.

Another great option for a slightly less expensive yarn is Swish DK by WeCrochet, which is 100% fine super wash Merino wool, 123yds/50g. It is soft and gentle on the skin so perfect for mittens. Again, 2 balls would be great for a pair of mittens.

Tension and Sizing

The mittens are designed to fit average adult hands, measures 18cm x 9cm at widest point but are easy to customise to fit.

6 puff sts and 9 rows = 10cm x 10cm

A ch1 or ch2 at the beginning of a row does not count as a stitch.

The foundation chain is a multiple of 4+1 sts. To make a larger or smaller pair simple add or subtract multiples of 4 sts.
