For each of the 2 larger sizes, this pattern uses 2 skeins of our Resilient Sock Yarn in colorway: Firekissed. Choose any color you like, though. For the child size, only one skein is needed. You'll need a US Size H hook (5.00 mm).
Notes From the Designer:
Mittens are my favorite things to crochet. I do not like to be cold and winters where I live (in the Midwest) can be very cold and brittle. I am warm when my hands are warm. I also like to be stylish while being warm, so began designing mittens for myself about 6 years ago. When Chandi asked me to make a family set of mittens, I was very excited.
The simple design for this set is centered around the classic look of a basic mitten with natural texture created by the half double crochet stitch. I wanted to keep the basic design and prefer a smaller looking cuff with the main focus on the mitten itself. To insure the mitten was the main feature, I chose to use a 3-round textured cuff using the front post double crochet stitch to imitate the look of a knitted ribbing.
I love the feel and stitch definition of the Resilient Sock yarn, but wanted a warmer design for the mittens, so I chose to use two strands together. This added thickness and warmth while enhancing the natural stitch definition of the sock yarn.
I hope you enjoy making these mittens as much as I have enjoyed designing them!

These mittens are beautiful and very quick to crochet. The measurements for the women's size that i made were perfect. Thank you for sharing this, it makes a very good gift that gets made quickly.
Looking forward to starting these lovely mittens!!
Love it! Can't wait to make them!
I've made 5 pairs of these now and LOVE the process of making them! They were the perfect quick project for family xmas gifts and I plan to make more for friends and for myself. I loved working with the double-stranded sock yarn, it creates a really solid, warm fabric. I did add some extra rounds to the mitten top before beginning the decreases as they seemed to need a little more length. This is a perfect pattern for anyone who's newer to crochet and wants to branch out and start making something other than a scarf or a hat, and they're really fast to complete!
Very nice. Ty for the free pattern. What next?. Happy new year!
I just started these, pattern is very well written and of course Chandi’s yarn is a dream to work with
Beautiful mittens, well written pattern. Finishing my first pair right now, just a few more rows to go... and I'll post a picture on IG. Thank you for sharing this pattern ♡
I am looking forward to making these mittens. The instructions are well written and easy to follow.
For the most part, I love this pattern, but I did make some modifications. The adult small proceed to be too small for my 11 year old son, so I changed to a tuned cuff and combined the stitch counts to a blend between the adult small and large patterns. It was a very well written pattern and really modified to meet my needs. Currently working on a second set of mittens as a Christmas gift as they worked up quickly.
Can't wait to make these. Thanks for the freebie!
