There is something so special about wearing a pair of handmade crochet mittens on a cold winter day. I remember having pairs of them as a child, held together with a cord that went through each sleeve of my coat so I didn’t lose them!
As an adult, I still love to wear mittens. They seem to always be much warmer than gloves and are the best for making snowballs! Mittens can seem complicated, but these 10 crochet mitten patterns available on Bluprint will have you reaching for your crochet hook and the most snuggly yarn you have in your stash.

1. Unforgettable Mittens
These super simple mittens look bright and sassy when made in a richly colored variegated yarn. The pattern is free and easy to follow, and you can customize your mittens by choosing your own colorway. Don’t have a multicolored yarn on hand? Why not make the ribbed cuffs and main mitten body in contrasting solids or in a sparkly yarn for mitten sophistication?

2. Easy Fingerless Mittens With Flaps
This is a great crochet mitten pattern that combines the warmth of a mitten with the convenience of fingerless mitts. The detachable flap means that you can flip it on (to stay cozy) and off (to use your cell phone).

4. Children’s Mittens
This classic by stylish pattern uses front and back post stitches and the half-double crochet to create warm mittens that fit well. Four sizes are included, from small child to teens. Using a high-quality acrylic yarn makes them washable and very practical for getting to school in winter or playing in the snow.

5. Sam Mittens
This pattern is really two in one, with options to make a full mitten or a fingerless mitten. Many different sizes are also included, from child to adult, and it’s a great pattern for both genders. The possibilities are endless, as you are able to choose your own color combo from worsted weight yarn.

7. Octopus Scarf Mittens
We couldn’t pass up such an unusual and fun project! The mittens are made as part of a scarf, and textured crochet circles create the look of an octopus tentacle. I love the lime green and purple color combo! Suitable for a beginner/basic level crocheter, these will wow your friends.

8. Fantasy Crochet Mittens
This unusual crochet mitten design is so cool and FREE. The mittens are embellished using beads and crochet appliqué. While it’s more suited for experienced crocheters, the more complex patter is well worth the effort to make.

9. Houndstooth Mittens
These gorgeous crochet mittens have a very fashionable, retro look. The houndstooth design mittens is easy and quick to crochet, and you can choose any two colors that you like — not just black and white. I’m thinking lime green and purple again!
