|My favourite mittens|
I have never actually crocheted a full set of mittens but have made many a pair of fingerless mittens and wrist warmers, best give that a go... The pattern that I have searched for and think looks simple enough to make is this one, as said I've not made it, but it's on my to do list... Crochet mitten pattern
I have however made crocheted fingerless mittens as mentioned and in case you wanted to make some, here is the pattern I used. In fact I loved it so much, I made 3 one after the other... Puff stitch fingerless mittens
Unfortunately I cannot share with you the pattern for my absolute favourite knitted mitten pattern as it is a bought pattern from Rauma.no and it's in Norwegian, but thought I would show you my favourite pair... those in the close up with the Norwegian flag!

BUT and hold on to your hats, the very talented Christine over at Winwick mum fame, has designed her own mittens with a twist. In fact they are so genius that I am definitely going to be making a pair this year. Her tutorials are brilliant, did you follow her sock making tutorial, so clear and easy to follow and understand and I have no doubt this will be just the same. Why are her mittens so great? She has split them in two so you can just whip the tops off to take photos, go foraging, answer the phone and a million other things without getting your hands too cold, just take a look...

If the four above patterns do not take your fancy or time is short, isn't it always?!?! Then I did make an uber quick pair of wrist warmers last year for my sister, you could make these in a couple of hours... Quick make wrist warmers and if you scroll further down on the post you will find my daughter's wonderful flapjack recipe too, bonus!
