The Mustard Mitts – Free Crochet Pattern

Get set for a chilly winter with these versatile and on trend mitts! Made from soft 4ply yarn, the soft ribbing and texture stitch body are just the thing. They are practical too – a toggle holds back the finger cover when you need your fingers free and then it pops over when you want to be warm all over. A great project to keep, give and make again!

 

I love the idea of full on mitts but they are just so impractical sometimes aren’t they?! I designed these mitts to be both practical and cute so if you’re anything like me and need to regularly have your fingers free for photographing, dog lead untangling, snack and toy passing etc etc then these are just the thing for you.
