Hygge Mittens (Womens’ Size)

Who can resist a cozy, warm pair of mittens on a cool day?  One of my favorite yarns is Red Heart Hygge.  I love the soft, squishy texture and smooth feel as I crochet with it.  I’ve created several patterns with this yarn, but the Textured Hygge Mittens are one of my favorites.

The texture of these mittens comes from the mini bean stitch, one of my favorite textured stitches.  It is easy to crochet and the nature of it makes these mittens work up very quickly.  A special ribbing technique gives the cuff some added style and the long length of the cuff keeps the wrists warm.

Sized for baby through adult, you can make these mittens for the whole family!
