Crocheted Toddler Mittens (FREE pattern)

Ever tried to find good fitting mittens that aren’t a pain in the rear to put on your small toddler? None of them are small enough to fit their tiny hands well.

PROBLEM SOLVED!

“I’ll just make my own!”

BUUUUT… I struggled to even find a crochet pattern that worked, so I designed my own! I have used this pattern for a couple of years and made MANY mittens for my kids and my friend’s and family’s kids as well. They are amazing! Pattern is for Toddler (1-2T) and Preschooler (3-5T). I didn’t bother writing the pattern for any older kids because by the time they were 5 or so they preferred gloves and by that time gloves fit well enough to be useful.
