I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Let’s make those little hands toasty and fun.

So, not only little babies’ hands get cold, and larger children also get icicle fingers too. Therefore, here are some patterns for mittens for children that will be fun and interesting to make, as well as encouraging the little ones to wear them. Indeed, if you choose a pair that the sprog particularly enjoys, you can also be sure this will be a treasured pair and not lost as easily. Of course if they do and there is much crying and gnashing of teeth, it’ll be super easy to replace them. Better still, you have an instant idea for a gift here that will be highly appreciated, yet not requiring an arm and a leg in effort or money.

Winter Animal Wear

Undoubtedly, mittens for children are best served as an accessory in a complete set. In this case, this is a kitty cat hat and paw mittens. Meeeeow!

However, mittens for children can be a thing on their own as well. Thus, here are some little chompers for your little shark week fans. Moreover, with a little work, and some green yarn, they can be re-styled into crocodiles.

Hello Gnome Mittens

That said, mittens for children do not need to represent or be anything. Case in point, here are some gnome mittens that are a little more abstract and warm, perfect for larger kids.

Owl Mittens

More to the point, however, mittens for children are most often stylized to represent something, making them more fun and interesting. Thus, here are some owls.

Mrs. Murdock’s Mittens

Next, we have some simple mittens for children. Indeed, these are worked in single crochet only making this probably the easiest mitten pattern. Although simple, these are by no means boring. Indeed, they’ll be perfect for a pre-teen who is too ‘adult’ for kittens and unicorns.
