by Jelena Nemchenko 10 Oct 2023 0 Comments

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:

  1. 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.

  2. Crochet Hook: Select an appropriate hook size based on the yarn you've chosen. A 5mm hook often works well for medium-weight yarn.

  3. Scissors: A sharp pair of scissors is essential for cutting yarn neatly.

  4. 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.

Step 1: Foundation ch = mittens lenght without ribbing, in my works it is 19 cm / 7,5 inch
