How To Crochet Knit Look Mittens
10 Oct 2023
Greetings, fellow crochet enthusiasts!
As winter approaches, there's nothing cozier than a pair of mittens to keep your hands warm. In this crochet blog post, we'll embark on a creative journey to crochet mittens that capture the timeless charm of knitted mittens but with the unique touch of crochet.
Materials You'll Need:
Before we dive into the stitches and pattern, let's gather the materials needed for crocheting your knit-look mittens:
Yarn: Choose a medium-weight or worsted yarn in your favorite 2 colors. This type of yarn is perfect for creating mittens that are both warm and stylish.
Crochet Hook: Select an appropriate hook size based on the yarn you've chosen. A 5mm hook often works well for medium-weight yarn.
Scissors: A sharp pair of scissors is essential for cutting yarn neatly.
Yarn Needle: You'll use a yarn needle for weaving in ends and sewing up your mittens.
Now that you've gathered your materials, let's dive into crocheting your knit-look mittens.

Repeat the same from the other side, for 4 or more rows depends on the ribbing length you want
