These crochet gloves are functionally comfortable; the aligned cobble stitch pattern adds a layer of warmth on those cold winter days without adding too much bulk. I also love that my fingers are free for texting and responding to emails while I’m out and about.
This easy crochet pattern can be worked in two different sizes, with an option to add additional stitches to customize the fit. The aligned cobble stitch gives these crochet mitts a gorgeous texture.
This free crochet pattern is easy enough for beginners too. It’s a great pattern for anyone who’s learning how to crochet. If you’re just starting out or looking to polish and perfect your crochet skills, I highly recommend the professionally filmed and taught Crochet Fundamentals class.
I was feeling brave and decided to make a matching pair for myself and my preteen daughter. I survived with minimal eye-rolls and even got a little smile (she secretly still thinks it’s cool to have matching things).
These comfy cozy crochet accessories also make the perfect gift for anyone.
