Mistletoe MittensĀ 

I have now retired this pattern so have removed the pattern from the post. This post remains only to remind me how far I have come in the world of crochet and to keep the photographs of what I have made.

I know its a little late for mistletoe, but the truth is I am really rubbish at finding the time to write up patterns!

I made these mittens with a lovely ball of Sirdar Giselle in a colourway called mistletoe. I fell in love with it as I absolutely loved the combo of green and copper. Unfortunately it wasn’t as lovely all the way through. The green gets rather muddy at times.

Anyways, these mittens are very easy. They are done corner to corner. Essentially, you are just creating a square. And they are a perfect stash buster! You can find a link below to a video I found really helpful when learning c2c.

I used a 4.5mm hook and dk yarn, but since you are just creating a rectangle you can use whatever size hook and weight of yarn you fancy!

What do you think? I love the end result even if I wasn’t so pleased with the variegation of the yarn. Have any of you found that the initial impression of a variegated yarn doesn’t live up to expectations once you have worked it up? Please share in the comments! I would love to know so I avoid this disappointment in the end!
