Crochet: GG Mittens

 

Crochet: GG Mittens

Here are the mittens I made a few weeks back.

I usually crochet blankets and shawls,

but I thought it was time to learn how

to crochet mittens.

And these were made just in time

for winter.

Before you tell me

that 11c isn’t very cold, for Sydney it is.

The dog & I are both snuggled up to

 the radiator as I type!

(back to the mittens)

 

The ‘single crochet’ body

of these mittens make them Quick & Easy to do.

Actually all of pattern is easy to crochet,

even the cuffs.

 

They are simply

3 rows of FRONT & BACK POST dc’s,

tagged onto the bottom of the main body.

 

In fact, I think the most fiddly part of this pattern

were the little decorative flowers.

Being a Japanese crochet pattern

(ISBN: 9784529051163),

 

  I had to extend the main body and thumb a little,

but even that proved easy to do.

Who knew?

Why it has taken me so long to crochet

I don’t know, but I plan on making some more.

 

Perhaps some less appealing to the  

5 year old in me!

p.s.

 

The current theme of ‘Green & Gold’

is a mystery to me too.

p.p.s

I used Rico Creative Cotton (Aran)

with a 4mm hook.
