Liberty Mitts

Although the criss-crossing button straps look complicated, these mitts are deceptively easy to construct. These mitts are made in one piece without seams. You don't even have to sew the buttons on: they are worked into rows of slip stitches, making for a quick and easy finish.

Brenda K. B. Anderson designs crochet and knit patterns on the couch which she shares with her good-looking husband and their hairy baby Mr. Kittypants. She lives in Saint Paul, Minnesota, where there is no such thing as owning too many hats and mittens. Her designs have been published in numerous magazines including Interweave Crochet, Crochet Today, Knitscene and her book Beastly Crochet (published by Interweave Press). You can find her on Ravelry as "yarnville".

  • One steel size 3 (2.10mm) crochet hook to be used to attach buttons.
