This listing is for a print copy of the Sloe Mittens pattern from The Warmer Project by The Crochet Project.

All of our patterns are written in English using standard UK crochet terminology.
The trick to great crochet mittens is getting the stitch for the hands right. It needs to be warm enough, so that your fingers aren’t sticking out through the natural holes in crochet but stretchy enough to allow for movement. These Mittens are made from linked trebles, creating a solid fabric for the coldest days.

Difficulty Rating Easy
Skills Needed Basic crochet stitches, working in rounds, raised (post) stitches, decreasing, increasing.
Construction The mittens start at the top, with a chain where linked stitches are worked into both sides to create an oval shape, with increases worked at each side. The seam on these mittens contain an increase and decrease to minimise the unslightly travelling join that can happen with this stitch.
The pattern does not match the pictures at all. I spent an hour and half on one mitten trying to figure out what was going wrong with it and no matter how many times I tried it didn’t look anything like it was suppose to. Definitely not happy with the pattern and will not be using it. I was really disappointed because I really liked how the mittens appeared in the pictures.
