Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You'll need to know the basic crochet stitches: how to chain, single-crochet and double-crochet.
  • If you have already made a granny square before, it will make it easier.

Pattern Description:

*** Pattern was revised and tested Dec 2014 ***

I love granny squares, and had to design fingerless gloves around this icon of the crochet culture.

These are made litterally working "around a granny square" (that's the title of the ebook I wrote about granny squares, and which includes this design), with warm fabric on the inside of the mitts, and a shaped thumb.

The mitts close around the wrist with 2 pretty buttons.

Pattern is richly illustrated with tons of pictures showing each step of the construction of the mitts, and detailed instructions.

Permission to sell your finished items. :-)


A four-rounds Granny square measures 4" = 10 cm

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • The mitts are made to fit an average woman's hand.
  • You can easily size them up or down using a larger/smaller hook and a different yarn weight : I used dk yarn and a 4 mm/Size G hook for the pink & plum mitts, and they fit my 4 year old' little hands..


  • Noro Silk Garden : 1 skein in Color A and 1 skein in Color B.
  • 5 mm / Size H crochet hook

You Will Also Need:

  • 4 buttons, approx. 1.5 cm - 1/2 inch diameter

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Noro Silk Garden
