Why should crocheters be excluded from the fun of making and wearing fingerless mitts?

After all, they can fold a square in half and seam it shut just as well as any knitter can. Better, maybe, since crocheting a seam shut is so much easier than mattress stitch.

These simple mitts work up in a flash and will be warming your hands in no time. The smooth fabric lends itself to embellishment such as embroidery, buttons, beads, or little flowers.

I think this pattern will be suitable for a beginner. You just need to know how to chain, single crochet, and slip stitch.

The mitts as written will very likely use all the yarn. I suggest you divide the ball before starting to ensure you have enough for both mitts, or buy a second ball.

US crochet terms used throughout.
