Notes From the Designer:
Mittens are my favorite things to crochet. I do not like to be cold and winters where I live (in the Midwest) can be very cold and brittle. I am warm when my hands are warm. I also like to be stylish while being warm, so began designing mittens for myself about 6 years ago. When Chandi asked me to make a family set of mittens, I was very excited.
The simple design for this set is centered around the classic look of a basic mitten with natural texture created by the half double crochet stitch. I wanted to keep the basic design and prefer a smaller looking cuff with the main focus on the mitten itself. To insure the mitten was the main feature, I chose to use a 3-round textured cuff using the front post double crochet stitch to imitate the look of a knitted ribbing.
I love the feel and stitch definition of the Resilient Sock yarn, but wanted a warmer design for the mittens, so I chose to use two strands together. This added thickness and warmth while enhancing the natural stitch definition of the sock yarn.
I hope you enjoy making these mittens as much as I have enjoyed designing them!
