I keep a pair of mittens or fingerless gloves in the pocket of every coat I own — even the lightweight coats. Cold fingers and hands can strike at any time: while you’re at your desk typing, while you’re crocheting, while you’re driving…
Crocheting your own mittens and fingerless gloves means you can control the amount of warmth and even find a color that matches or complements your coat.
Be ready for cold temperatures, from cool to frigid, with these cozy crochet mittens and fingerless gloves from our talented Bluprint designers.

You only need 300 yards of fingering-weight yarn to make these bright-hued mittens. These are my favorite kind of mittens — the ones that are fingerless but have the optional mitten flap — because you can type, text, and avoid fumbling with keys, then tuck your hand right back inside.

I love the possibility of color combinations for these mittens. It’s also a great way to use up those scrap worsted-weight yarns that are taking up precious space in your stash. The pattern is sized for everyone from infants to adults, so they’re great gifts for anyone!

If the geometry of the design for these mittens doesn’t make you swoon, then the colors will! These mittens look different depending on what type of yarn. Take a peek at designer ElevenHandmade‘s other photos of the mittens crocheted with a different yarn and you’ll see what I mean!

Fingerless Gloves with Crochet Ribbing
These gloves are worked sideways so you can control how short or long you want them. There are photos to go along with the pattern, so you’ll have plenty of guidance as you crochet.

Edwardian Crochet Mittens
Need some fingerless gloves that are fancier than your usual pair? These are for you. The gloves can be worked with or without the thumb, and the pattern is the same for both the left and right hand, so no need to figure out any tricky reverse thumb shaping.

I’m flipping out over these mittens — especially the penguins! Choose from the owl and two types of penguins. These mittens have lots of little hidden advantages, like the ribbing wristband on the inside that helps them stay put. You’ll need to have some skills with stranded colorwork, so be prepared for that when you begin.
