Julie's Basic Mittens

Image of Picture of Julie's Basic Mittens Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

These mittens are a great basic all purpose family mitten. You could actually make these mittens in various colors due to the way they are made. They have a tight fabric so that they will stay nice and warm in cold weather. To make child's mittens without altering the pattern, just use sport weight yarn and a size E hook. To make an ornament you can stuff, use size 10 crochet thread and a size 7 steel hook.
