I have used this pattern in the past and they came out just great. The directions are very simple and straight forward. It's a breeze to follow a long. The hard part was deciding on the colors to use. I sent a black pair to my brother in the North and he still raves about them.

I had two boys and they were always losing their hats and gloves. I never gave them mittens. Now they both live far away from me and I wonder if they still lose their gloves and hats, lol. As a gift I think they would appreciate these because lets face it, boys don't buy stuff like this.

Mittens were my favorite as a kid. Funny how now, I only have gloves. My husband probably has just as many sets of gloves as I do but not a pair of mittens. This will be a great birthday gift from him. He is a December baby.

I can't knit so I'm always happy to find a good crochet pattern for mittens. This is a nice looking pattern. I think it would be great for a potholder type hand protector also. Making a nice liner would give extra protection against the elements too. With our Maine winters it helps a lot to have a well made, warm and protective pair of mittens.

Every summer weekend, and some week day evenings in between, my husband gets to work at his big BBQ grill. I dont mind a bit as he grills enough, we can reheat leftovers during the week. Last weekend I noticed his grill mitts were getting a little ratty, so this project will be a nice surprise for him. The only change Ill make is to extend the sleeves.

It'd be wonderful if you could also include smaller sizes. I want to make some for myself. Will try to figure it out.

Hi dandmk, That's a great idea - I would suggest you contact the blogger who created this pattern and see if she has ideas on how to make smaller items. Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Have you gone to this bloggers site? Here is a link . She has a lot of free patterns available and many of them are for mittens of various sizes. If it is these particular mittens that you would like available is a smaller size, it is very easy to adjust by using different yarn and smaller hooks.

I've made these mittens before and I can attest to their simple pattern. They are super warm because of the thick yarn and also super quick to make because of it. They're so nice and squishy! They would make a nice staple at your next craft fair! Everyone I know loves handmade mittens!

Brilliantly easy - the recipient was very pleased!

"HELP" I need to know how to "skip" in crocheting. Thanks, but can you hurry, I'm about to pull what I've done apart.

Still hoping someone will tell me how to "skip" in crochet, I'm lost. Thanks

Have this pattern and am up to the "skip" ten stitches. I have no idea how to do this in crocheting. Can you help me? Thanks in advance, I'm desperate! Carol

Until someone at this site gets a clue and fixes this, I'm re-posting the link I posted in the comments yesterday because it seems folks are still having a hard time finding it: Daddy's Simply Easy Mittens Happy crocheting! Anne

I found it by the name of the picture credit...Here's the actual link

You may have to cut and paste it into your URL bar window.

Please repair link as it takes me and others back to the same page and not the pattern.

Can't link to pattern!

I would sure like the link to NOT take me back to this page every time

Here is a better address (not sure if they will let me post a real link in the comments): Daddy's Simply Easy Mittens

oh, I forgot to mention - at the link I posted for the pattern, you have to scroll at least halfway down the page. Cheers, Anne

Looks like they misconfigured the link. I'm a geek (I do programming and website development), so it was fairly easy to figure out where the link *should* point to Here it is:

as ennjaybee asked, "where is the pattern??" this link just links back to this link.

How can I get to the pattern? When I click on "Click here for crochet pattern" it goes right back to the same site we're at right now.
