If you are looking for an easy, quick stash-busting crochet project, a pair of mittens is definitely a good option.
After surfing the web for some patterns, I ended up choosing this Youtube video by Cucaditas de Saluta, which is very clear and easy to follow even if you don’t know Spanish:
Mine came out a little different because I didn’t make the decoration stripe and I let the thumb unworked because they were a present for my sister in law. She is an archer and I think she may appreciate total thumb freedom of movement… 🙂
This is a perfect project for when you have just a little skein or a remnant from a larger project.
I made mine with a skein of 50 grams or 100 meters and a 4.5 millimeters hook , and I still have a bunch on meters left! I’ve calculated I could make 3 gloves per skein. And you can totally make a pair of these in an afternoon!
And this is Maya using her mittens 🙂
