These wooly warm mittens were supposed to have been released a long time ago. I was meant to have brought them to you directly. Or if you’re in the Southwest…

Dreckly An unspecified time, later. Dreckly is something that you will get around to at some point in the future, or possibly never.

Randomly placed stripes of varying widths look great in these crochet mittens.

This is a written pattern and comes in two downloads for US & UK terms.

Worked from the cuff up, increases are made before separating at the thumb. Some decreases are made at the fingertips before closing. The thumb is made after.

Tension 6cm = 13sts. The first 9 rows of pattern measure approx 5.75cm.

All hands are different. The size of these mittens can be easily adjusted by adding or subtracting the non-increase MC rows (evenly dispersed rather than all in one place) and/or stitches (ensure an even no. of multiples to allow for the cuff ribbing). Three sizes are given but feel free to adjust according to how you want them to fit. **
