Mixed Stripe Mittens Crochet Pattern
I recently went on a trip and got to experience my first snow of this year!
I don’t know about you but I always find the first snow of the year to be full of whimsy and nostalgia. I felt like a little kid again, running around, catching snowflakes on my tongue.
Every year, I pledge to make one snowman. It’s a tradition for me, and you know how important those are to me. And everyone knows you need a good pair of gloves to build a good snowman.
Introducing the perfect striped crochet mittens.
I brought these striped mittens along on the trip with me and thank goodness I did. They were perfect for outdoor adventures in the snow. They’re made out of an acrylic wool blend, so they’re soft but really durable. Just what I need for playing around in the snow.
Not only are these crochet gloves practical, but they’re cute too. The base of the mittens is gray with pink tips at the top. Then, there’s a little white stripe under the pink, with a bit of gray separating the colors.
It’s a really basic design because they’re worked in single crochet all over. So if you’re going on a trip soon, you can work these up just in time.
I love how warm and durable these mittens are. And they’re really stylish. I think everyone should have a pair, yourself included!
