Can we all talk about how awesome it is to be a crafty Mom for a second?

Because one morning my daughter wanted to play in the snow. As I was getting her ready, I noticed that her mittens were too small.

If I was a non crafty Mom, that would mean packing a diaper bag, bundling up the baby like a mini snowman, combing scrambled eggs out of someone’s hair, herding the children out to the car like distracted cattle, pretending not to notice spit up on my shoulder, a trip through the isles of Target in search of new outerwear while replacing things on the shelves that were taken down by my munchkins, holding hands in the parking lot while loaded up like a pack mule…..shall I go on?

But because I am a crafty Mom, when those mittens were a bit too small, I just muttered, “Er….hold on a second.” Grabbed my hook and finished them before she had found her second sock. To be fair, her room is a mess. Technically, it is a safety hazard. CLEAN YOUR ROOM, CHILD! Ahem.

The instructions for these are written in one size. However, simply changing the weight of your yarn and hook size will produce a smaller/larger mitten. I’d say sport weight for small, DK for medium, or worsted for a large.

The bow is also made and sewn on separately, so feel free to leave it off if you have a child that doesn’t appreciate the foo foo things in life.
