I was looking for a fun little addition to my Christmas decor and to add to my Christmas packages this year, so I designed this adorable “Little Mitten” pattern. It is such a quick make and turns out so cute!
I used a #4 weight yarn and an “H” hook. I would say that it is probably a little complicated for a beginner but if you are a pretty knowledgeable advanced beginner or definitely an intermediate crocheter, it will be really quick and easy for you to make. I think you will love making this little mitten and you may become addicted to making it. (Like me….you can see in my photo that I got pretty carried away!)
Well, so that you can get started on your very own “Little Mitten”, here is the Free Pattern.

Little Mitten Pattern
Body of the Mitten
Round 1: Using the “Magic Circle”, Ch 2. (The Ch 2 counts as the first hdc.). Work 7 hdc in the circle. Join with slip stitch to top of first hdc. (8 st)
Round 2: Ch 2. Work 1 hdc in the base of the Ch 2. Work 2 hdc in next stitch and in each stitch around. Join to first hdc with slip stitch. (16 st)
Round 3: Ch 2. Work 1 hdc in the base of the Ch 2. *Work 1 hdc in next stitch. Work 2 hdc in next stitch.* Repeat from * to * around. You will end with 1 hdc in the last stitch. (24 st). DO NOT JOIN to first hdc with slip stitch.
Place Stitch Marker.
Round 4: Work 1 hdc in each stitch around. (24 st). Move stitch marker.
Round 5 – 8: Repeat Round 4. (24 st)
Round 9: Ch 3. Skip 3 stitches. (By chaining 3 and skipping 3 stitches you have created the opening for the thumb.). Work 1 hdc in each of the remaining stitches of the round. (24 stitches, counting the 3 chains at the beginning of the round). Move stitch marker.
Round 10: Work 1 hdc in each of the 3 chains. Work 1 hdc in each of the remaining stitches of the round. (24 st). Move stitch marker.
Round 11: Work 1 hdc in each stitch around. Slip stitch to the first hdc. (24 st). (Remove stitch marker.)
Round 12: Ch 2. (Ch 2 counts as first dc). Work 1 dc in each stitch around. Slip stitch to the first dc. Ch 1. (24 st)
Round 13: In first dc, work 1 fphdc. *In next stitch, work 1 bphdc. In next stitch, work fphdc.*. Repeat from * to * around. Slip stitch to first stitch. (24 st)
Round 14: Ch 1. Work 1 sc in each stitch around. Slip stitch to first sc. (24 st)
Fasten off and weave in the loose ends.
(As you look at the thumb opening you should be able to identify 10 stitches around it. You will work into each one in your first round of the thumb.)
Attach yarn to one side of thumb hole opening. Work your round on the outside of the mitten (going to the left from where you attach the yarn.)
Round 1: Work 1 sc in each stitch around. (10 st). Place stitch marker. Do not slip stitch to the first sc.
Round 2: Work 1 sc in each stitch around. (10 st). (Move stitch marker.)
Round 3: Work 1 sc in each stitch around. (10 st). (Move stitch marker.)
Round 4: Decrease by working 2 sc crochet together). Do this 5 times. Move stitch marker, or just remove if it is too much in the way.
Round 5: (Last Round) Decrease by working 2 sc crochet together 2 times. Ch 1. Cut yarn leaving 4 inches of yarn. Thread yarn onto a yarn needle. Close the opening on the top of the thumb by making 2 or 3 stitches across the opening. Bring yarn to inside of thumb. Fasten off and weave in the ends.
Finished!!! Now, be creative and make lots of “Little Mittens” for this Christmas
Best Wishes and Stay Cozy!!
