3 Hour Mittens by Jess Coppom

Let’s start with one of my favorites – a quick crochet project from our favorite Jess Coppom. As the name suggests, it will take about three hours for these mittens to come to life, thanks to chunky yarn and a big crochet hook. What I love about them the most is the imitation of the classic knitted stockinette stitch but with a crochet technique. Add this versatile winter accessory to your wardrobe ASAP!

Country Cottage Mittens by The Turtle Trunk

If you’re craving texture, there’s no better technique than the alpine stitch – easy to crochet and utterly beautiful. Ali chose neutral colors, and a medium-weight yarn for her project, and conjured a pair of mittens you can use for years to come. As you can see, not only is this an elegant and timeless design, but also a proper winter accessory to keep your hands cozy.

Celtic Winters Mittens by Megan Meyer

The elegance of the design lies in its balance, and this project is a great example of it. The Celtic weave stitch is very decorative, so Megan decided to switch a classic ribbing to this textural technique. This way it doesn’t overwhelm the mitten design and allows the yarn to showcase its stunning colorway.

Hygge Arrow Gloves by Raffaella Tassoni

Have you ever found the glove design you like, simply to wish it was a mitten (or the other way around)? Now you don’t have to choose because Raffaella’s crochet pattern will show you how to make both. Her project has a stunning arrow texture that looks exquisite in rustic yarn. Grab a skein of Aran-weight yarn, a crochet hook, and a yarn needle for weaving in ends.

Traditional Fair Isle Crochet Mittens by Briana K Designs

Although I love modern designs, there’s a special place in my heart for the truly classic, traditional ways of crochet. One such way is definitely Fair Isle Crochet, which produces stunning colorwork and mimics the shape of knitted stitches. Following Briana’s mittens pattern may be a fantastic way for you to get familiar with this technique.

Faux Fur Mittens by Stephanie Jessica Lau

What if I tell you that you can crochet such fantastic furry mitts like the ones in the photos? Stephanie’s pattern may be simple, but the yarn is far from the usual! What you see is furry yarn, a member of the novelty yarn category – soft, warm, and very fluffy. Working with such yarn may be a challenge (it’s not easy to see the stitches), but the effect is worth it!

Fairytale Mittens by Adinda’s World

This project is so special, that I couldn’t resist including it in this collection. Adinda let her imagination flow loose and created the best fairytale-inspired mittens I’ve ever seen. We’ve got dotty mushrooms, pink cuffs, colorful flowers, and vines. This magical landscape came to life with the use of appliques, surface crochet, and embroidery.
