Aran Mittens – Free Crochet Pattern

I wanted to design a pair of cosy, warm mittens. I used Stylecraft Special Aran with Wool (400g) to make these mittens. This pattern should only need a 100g ball of Aran yarn so try different Aran yarns to see what you can create.

This is a free crochet pattern written using UK crochet terminology.

Below you will find a list of equipment you will need, the pattern and instructions for creating your own mittens.

Approximate Measurements:
Length: 24 cm

Adjustments:
These mittens could be made smaller using a smaller hook and DK yarn. They could also be made shorter by reducing the number of rows between R12 – R27. To make them larger use a larger hook size, to make them longer you could add rows between R12 – R27

I hope you enjoyed making these cosy mittens.
