This week’s blog post will feature a crochet pattern for baby mittens that I made using Loops and Thread’s Charisma Baby yarn in Coral. They had the yarn for sale at Michael’s so I decided to get some in different shades of pink and variegated yarn. I am also working on a baby diaper cover that I will post about in a later post. Since the yarn is thick and the mittens are only for a newborn, this project worked up really quick! Let’s get started!
Aran / 10 ply (8 wpi) (4 – Medium) Yarn
5.5 mm (I) Hook
Stitch Marker (Optional)
Starting with the ribbing.
Row 1: SC into 2nd CH from Hook and till end. Turn. (2)
Row 2 – 13: CH 1. SC into BKLO till end. Turn. (2)
Row 14: CH 1. SC into BKLO till end. SLST into CH ST to for the ribbing band of the mitten. Do not finish off. (2)
Round 1: CH 1. SC into same ST. SC around. (14)
Round 2 – 7: SC around (14)
Round 8: SCTOG. SC into next 5 STs. SCTOG. SC into next 5 STs. (12)
Round 9: SC around (12)
Round 10: SCTOG around. (6)
FO. Leave a tail to close up the top of the mitten. Flip the mitten around to sew weave in ends.
That’s it! The bright colour of the yarn is perfect for baby mittens and I really like how soft the yarn is so it was easy to work with. Unfortunately, I think this particular yarn has been discontinued, but there are many different baby soft yarns that are available to make these mittens with!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
