I crocheted my first pair of mittens!
Here’s the pattern I used: Hearts On A String Mittens. Since I didn’t have any Homespun laying around, I used two strands of a lighter weight yarn. I didn’t mind substituting yarn and ignoring gauge since you pretty much measure everything in this pattern. I will say that by using 2 yarns, I created mittens that feel a little like they are made of kevlar. A little stiff, ya know? But they definitely won’t let in the snow when Arp goes shoveling, and I doubt he’ll end up with those little holes in the glove you get from gripping the steering wheel. Plus, I’m hoping those hearts draw attention to my hubby, and that he will brag to the world that his lovely wife just made him her first pair of mittens!
