Crochet Tutorial: Nadia’s Wonderfully Warm Mittens

Crochet Tutorial: Nadia’s Wonderfully Warm Mittens

I am making the best out of these frigid temps this week as I finish yet another weather inspired pattern. With temperature well below zero and brutal wind chills, it is no wonder that my mind is always thinking of ways to stay as snug and cozy as I possibly can! Nadia’s Wonderfully Warm Mittens are my latest creation to come off my hook!

These cozy mitts are fantastic and definitely doing their job keeping my digits nice and toasty! Frigid air, don’t care, I got me a pair! Ok, that was silly, but these mittens are not! Using Red Heart Evermore Chunky Yarn, this pair works up fast and easy! I have noted how to make these a bit bigger if you want more room! Handmade mittens are inspired by days gone by when most of the winter worn items were homespun yet these will always stand the test of time. My Wonderfully Warm Mittens are functional and very stylish today and for generations to come! Make yourself a pair! These also make a great gift!

Crochet Tutorial: Cat Paw Hand Warmers with Fur

Bring out your inner “cat-titude” and freak “meowt!” This is the “purrrr-fect” project to make that happen! I am “paws-itive” you will be “feline” “claw-some!!”

As I work my way toward Halloween and my own personal costume, I created these paw fingerless gloves as a piece to one of my best costumes yet! This time of the year always gets my creativity going for fun ideas on ways to economically make a costume with as little as a hook and yarn. Although I made these as part of my Halloween attire, this would be a great project for any animal lover. You can modify these in many ways by changing the color, paw pads and fur! You don’t even need to put the paw prints on them and just have fancy fingerless gloves to give as a gift for anyone on your list!

Again, this is a quick and easy afternoon project! This blog includes the instructional video as well as a handwritten pattern. Be sure to check out the entire blog and make your mitts today!

I’m sure that you will “a-purrr-ove” of “e-furry-thing!” HA!
