Baby Mittens Crochet Pattern

Don’t you just love how cozy and snuggly gloves and mittens are? They’re the perfect accessory for chilly winter days. And as adults, we aren’t the only ones who love crochet mittens. Babies love a good pair of baby mittens too!

This mitten pattern is one of the sweetest free crochet baby patterns you’ll find. And it’s so easy too. The infant mittens are made in two colors out of Berroco Vintage DK yarn. It’s an acrylic wool nylon blend and is machine washable. That makes it the best fit for baby crochet patterns.

Baby patterns are usually very basic because of their size and the fact that babies grow so quickly. These crochet baby mitts remain easy to make, but add a little bit of flair, unlike most quick and easy crochet patterns.

These crochet baby mittens have delicate white detailing along the top of the mitten where it meets your wrist. They use basic crochet stitches like single crochet and double crochet. They also work in the front and back post for some stitches.

This creates a fun pattern, especially if you’re learning how to crochet mittens for the first time. Crocheting baby mittens doesn’t have to be boring. It can be fast and exciting. And you know these crochet mittens are going to be cute as a button.

Baby Mittens Crochet Pattern

Pattern Info

NOTES:

The pattern in U.S. crochet terminology

SKILL LEVEL: EASY

MATERIALS:

  • Hook: G/6 4.00mm & F/5 3.75mm
  • Yarn: Size 3 DK Weight Yarn – 60 yds. Berroco Vintage DK in Color B -2100 (white) and Color A – 2116 (taupe)
  • Darning needle and scissors

ABBREVIATIONS:

  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • sc = single crochet
  • dc = double crochet
  • fpdc = front post double crochet
  • bpdc = back post double crochet

SIZE: These mittens will fit a newborn up to about 6-months old and are perfect for covering their nails so they don’t scratch themselves.

PATTERN NOTES:

This pattern uses the Front Post Double Crochet stitch and the Back Post Double Crochet stitch which are slight variations of the double crochet. The trick is inserting your hook the right way into the stitch from the row below.

Front Post Double Crochet – Instead of inserting your hook in the chain at the top of the stitch, insert the hook behind the post then back to the front, pushing the post to the front. If you are right handed, that means you will be working right to left across the row.

Back Post Double Crochet – The bpdc is the reverse of the fpdc, your hook goes through the back of the stitch below. You will insert your hook from the back of the work towards the front of the work and then to the back again. When you first insert your hook, the post that you want to crochet around will be sitting in “back” of your hook.

Cuff – When you get to the cuff section of this mitten, switch to the 3.75mm hook to help make this part a little tighter so it doesn’t slip off baby’s hands too easily.

Heart Graphgan Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

| Crafts & DIY, Crochet

This easy baby blanket is fun to work on and full of love. This free crochet pattern would make a sweet gift for a family friend or even donate one to the local hospital. #CrochetBabyBlanket #EasyCrochetBabyBlanket #BabyBlanketPatternHeart Graphgan Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

If you’ve recently found yourself scouring through blankets and crochet patterns on the internet, stop. The search is over. This Heart Graphgan crochet baby blanket is a dream.

This pattern is fun and exciting. You’ll get to learn the graphing technique which is different from a lot of baby blankets. It involves keeping count and using multiple balls of yarn. While this baby blanket is unique, baby blanket patterns can also have similarities. Their shape and baby blanket size; even the color palette in some cases.

There are lots of easy crochet baby blankets to be made. But this one is special. And don’t you want to make a personalized baby blanket if you’re going to put the effort in?

This baby blanket crochet project has a big heart in the middle crocheted out of soft yarn. The baby blanket crochet pattern calls for Berroco Comfort Chunky yarn is two colors. One for the large heart at the center and the other for the base blanket.  

The yarn is an acrylic nylon blend that’s soft and plushy. It’s even machine washable (always a good thing when kids are involved).

The baby blanket dimensions are easily adjustable too. You could easily add stitches to each side of the blanket to make it bigger. I wouldn’t alter the size of the heart though, unless you have experience with it.
