Free Crochet Mitten Pattern

Before you begin making this free crochet mittens pattern, you might want to know a few details about this pattern. Here are some tips and tricks to help get you started. Let’s first look at the different basic stitches used to make these mittens.  

The Basic Crochet Stitches

Magic Circle. The magic circle, also known as the magic ring, is used to start your crocheted mittens. This is an important way to start your mittens so that the whole does not become too large at the tips of the fingers. Check out this tutorial to see exactly how to make a magic ring.

Single Crochet Stitches. Single crochet stitches or smaller stitches are used in this pattern. To make a single crochet stitch insert the hook into the stitch indicated, yarn over, and pull up the loop. Then when there are two loops on the hook, yarn over and pull through both of the loops to make a single crocheted stitch.

Half Double Crochet. A half double crochet stitch is a size in between a single crochet, and double crochet. It’s not quite as tall as the double, but taller than a single. To make a half double crochet stitch, first yarn over then insert the hook into the stitch indicated. Yarn over and pull up a loop. When there are three loops on the hook, yarn over, and pull through all three loops to make a half-double crochet stitch.

Double Crochet Stitches. Double crochet stitches are another easy stitch pattern. To make double crochet stitches, first yarn over it then insert the hook into the stitch indicated. Yarn over and pull up a loop. There are now three loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through the first two loops on the hook. There are two loops remaining. Yarn over and pull through the remaining two loops on the hook to make a double crochet stitch. 

Slip Stitches. A slip stitch is usually used to join a round together. In this pattern, you might see it referenced as “sl st join”. Typically, a slip stitch is an invisible stitch, used to hold the round together, before you continue on to the next round.

    Double Crochet Decrease. To make a double crochet decrease stitch, you will first yarn over, then insert your hook into the first stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop. There are now three loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through the first two loops. Yarn over again, and insert the hook into the next stitch. Yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through the first two loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through the remaining stitches on the hook to make a double crochet decrease stitch.

    Single Crochet Decrease. To make a single crochet decrease, you will work the stitches in two stitches to decrease the overall number of stitches. First, insert your hook into the first stitch, yarn over, and pull up a loop. Then insert the hook into the next stitch, yarn over, and pull up another loop. Finally, yarn over and pull through all of the loops on the hook to make a single crochet decrease stitch.

    The simple stitches can also be combined into other types of special stitches or stitch patterns. One stitch pattern used in this crochet mittens pattern is a moss stitch. This is a type of stitch using a single crochet stitch, and chain stitch, alternating to make what is known as a linen stitch or must stitch in these basic crochet mittens.

    Another type of special stitch used in this pattern is when you work in the back loop only of the stitches on the previous round. I’d like to make this pattern, so that you are working in the third loop, of the previous around half double crochet stitches. This gives you a nice textured look for the mittens.

    Learn more about these basic crochet stitches in our post for Learning How to Crochet! This is a great resource, especially if you are just starting out.

    Special Stitches

    Making a Moss Stitch. The moss stitch is made by using a single crochet stitch and alternating it with a chain stitch. The first round of them is a stitch, you’ll make a single crochet, then chain one stitch. Skip the next space for stitches and make another single crochet stitch in the following space. Then when you get to the next row, you will work your single crochet stitches in the chain one space from the previous round.

    Back Loop Only (BLO). Typically, when crocheting you will work your stitches either in the top two loops of the stitches from your previous round or in the back loop only of the stitches from the previous round. In this pattern, I recommend working in the third loop on the previous round. 

    The third loop is typically located on the back side of the half-double crochet from the previous round. Working in the third loop it will give your mittens a lovely texture. To do this, you will simply insert the hook through this third loop, and make your stitches as instructed in the pattern.

    Favorite Yarns

    To make crocheted mittens, you will want to make sure that you have a thick enough yarn. Most acrylic yarn will come in a medium worsted weight yarn. This is a good option to use for crochet and mittens. You can also choose to use a more bulky yarn if d keep in mind that your bulky yarn will be warmer when wearing the mittens, and may also increase the overall size of your mittens depending on how tight your stitches are made.

    Personally, I like to use a thicker yarn for crocheted mittens if possible. That way you don’t have to worry about making the lining go inside of your crocheted mittens, and they will still keep your hands nice and warm.

    Classic Mittens Using Worsted Weight Yarn

    When making mittens, I like to use a soft medium weight yarn, so that the mittens turn out nice and warm. You can find it in a worsted weight yarn, but I like to use a heavier weight yarn, or chunky yarn.

    A nice number four or medium-weight yarn from Hobby Lobby will work well. Just make sure to choose a nice, soft yarn.

    Hook Size

    When making crocheted mittens, I like to use a larger hook, rather than a smaller hook. Especially if you are using chunkier yarn, it’s always a good idea to use a larger hook. 

    However, I would like to point out that if you were using a medium worsted-weight yarn, then you might need to use a slightly smaller hook so that there are no large holes in your crocheted mittens.

    You can also reference the packaging of your yarn scheme, to see what the manufacturer recommends as far as hook size for that specific yarn you are using. Using the recommended hook size is typically a good starting point.

    Skill Level

    Although this crocheted mitten pattern does use basic crochet stitches, to make up the different stitch patterns. It might be slightly complicated if you are a beginner crocheter. While I never say to don’t try a new pattern, I would suggest you check out this beginner-level crocheted mittens pattern, because it is less complicated and simpler to create.

    This crocheted mitten pattern is more suited to an intermediate-level crocheter. This is because of the different stitch patterns used to make the design for these crocheted mittens.

    Should this pattern be worked in continuous rounds?

    I do not recommend that you make crocheted mittens by working in continuous rounds. It is much cleaner, to end each round by joining the first stitch with the last, by making a slip stitch. Then begin the next round each time. If needed, you can use a stitch marker to help you determine where the beginning of each round is located.

    What sizes does this crochet pattern make?

    This crocheted mitten pattern is designed to make adult-size mittens. You can adjust this pattern to make as large or small of mitten sizes as needed. However, I do not recommend that you use these crocheted mittens patterns to make kid’s mittens, as they also need to be shorter as well as smaller around.

    Do not finish off. Continue to make the cuff on each mitten.

    Cuff Top of the Mitten

    Tip: I like to change to a smaller hook size. I used a size 7 hook for this part.

    There are two main ways you can make the cuff for the top of the mitten. The first way is to make the cut and attach it all at the same time, and the second is to create the cuff, then sew it on after you have it made. 

    Making the Cuff Attached

    Row 1: After you finished making the main part of the mitten body, leave the yarn attached. Ch 11 sts.

    Row 2: turn, in the 2nd ch from the hook, work a hdc st in each ch space. When you reach the body of the mitten, make 2 sl sts, the first st in the one nearest you, the second in the stitch right above. (10 st)

    Row 3: turn, working in the 2nd and 3rd loops of the hdc from the previous round, make a hdc st in each st. 

    Row 4: ch 1, turn. Work hdc in the 2nd and 3rd loop of each st across. When you reach the body of the mitten, sl st in the next stitch, above the previously attached row, then sl st in the row above. 

    Repeat row 3 and 4 until you have worked your way around the top of the mitten to make the cuff. 

    Creating the Cuff and then Attaching it

    Row 1: ch 11 

    Row 2: in the 2nd ch from the hook, work a hdc, hdc in each remaining 9 ch spaces. 

    Row 3: ch 1, working in the BLO, make a hdc in each st across. 

    Repeat row 3 until your cuff measures the circumference of the top of your main mitten. Once it reaches your desired size, finish off and leave a long tail for sewing. 

    Use a yarn needle, to sew the cuff to the top of your mitten body.
