One thing I never leave home without is a glove or mitten.
This list of crochet mitten patterns has something for everyone. There are beginner patterns, great options for the intermediate crafter, and even someone who feels they are at expert level.
Fuzzy and warm, or simple and fingerless, you’ll find a mitten here that suits your needs.
Crochet Mitten Patterns
Growing up, I never needed mittens in the winter. As a southern girl, winter rarely got cold enough for them. When I moved to Michigan in 2016, that changed. Gloves, shawls, mittens, hats, ear warmers, and scarves became a necessity. Of course, I set out on a mission to create my own. Why pay someone else for a flimsy pair when I can make my own that are a perfect fit?
I love the Hill Crest and Gathered Buds patterns below for daily wear, but have several of the other more unique options on the list in my projects basket to create for this winter. I love having a glove and scarf to match every outfit in my closet!
How Should I Wash Hand Made Mittens?
One thing I always let people know if I gift them mittens is that they are easy to wash just any other glove or mitten you would buy in a store. I personally find that dropping mittens into a lingerie or delicates bag before putting into the washing machine is the best way to keep them together.
Hill Crest Toddler Mitten Pattern
This simple crochet mitten pattern is a favorite easy and fast project to make. It’s ideal for toddlers, and is so simple to create you can make multiple pair so you never have to worry about your kids losing their gloves!
Gathered Buds Crochet Mittens for Kids
Another simple pattern for kids mittens, this gathered buds idea is super easy to make. I love the added detail around the wrists. It makes it look a bit classier than a regular mitten and will make your kids feel extra special.
Toddler Gathered Buds Crochet Mittens
Just the mittens above, this pattern is a great option for an easy project. The only difference is this pattern is just a little smaller for the smaller hands.
Easy Crochet Thumbless Mittens for Kids
Sometimes, you just need a mitten that is thumbless to keep your hands warm. It’s not always necessary to have a fancy pattern to make it look beautiful. This option is functional, but also has a truly adorable cuff pattern that you will love creating.
Winter Spun Kids Winter Mittens Pattern
I made these in two colors with a beautiful winter spun white cuff. They are the little girl’s dream! So soft, elegant, and beautiful, You will love this pattern for gifting.
Adult Hill Crest Crochet Mittens Pattern
Mix and match colors and have fun creating new mittens for yourself! This is a simple functional mitten that is beautiful and easy for even a new crocheter.
Hill Crest Child Mitten Pattern
This, just the one above, is a beautiful but simple pattern. Sized for children, this is a great addition to your winter project list. Grab a beautiful color of yarn and create a pair for every day of the week.
Gathered Buds Crochet Pattern for Adults
The altered bean stitch makes this a fun pattern that pushes your skills but is still simple. You won’t have to stress about not being able to create these but will feel you have made something a bit advanced.
Cotton Ball Stitch Cuffed Mitten Pattern
This pattern is great for multiple sizes and features what I to call a cotton ball stitch on the cuff. It’s puffed up and a little a ball, and truly beautiful once completed.
Flip Top Convertible Mittens
I love this idea! Mittens or fingerless gloves in one pattern! An added snap makes it easy to convert. An otherwise simple mitten pattern turns into a unique option for functional gloves!
Husky Style Dog Paw Mittens
Now, this definitely requires more skill to create, but the result is absolutely incredible. Pick your own colors, and create a unique glove with a dog paw print!
Granny Square Wrist Warmer Mittens
This is a fingerless mitten pattern with a beautiful granny square pattern in the middle of the hand. You will love that this pattern is so easy to follow, and the result is better than a basic mitten.
Hedgehog Mittens Pattern
What more can I say? These adorable mittens look little hedgehogs on our hands. I am 100% in love with these, and while probably intended for children, I think most of us adults would love them!
Football Pattern Mittens
A football fan in your home? These great crochet mittens are a perfect project. This pattern is truly simple, and even a novice crocheter will be able to make these to wear.
The Kennedy Cabled Mittens Pattern
This cabled pattern is thick, gorgeous, and oh, so warm. I love making cabled items, and this mitten pattern has a basic cuff with the cable on the actual mitten part. Just a super fun pattern to follow and create.
Magic Loop Cable Mittens Pattern
Another play on a cabled pattern, this simple mitten is stunning. Instead of a basic cable, this weaves into a figure 8 style that looks beautiful when worn. The basic cuff brings the look together beautifully.
Ice Kissed Mitten Pattern
Another unique pattern, this is a bit more simple than others. The snowflake or winter theme pattern is easy to complete, and a great second step for a beginner turning to intermediate patterns. I love the colors chosen but know you can easily change them for a set of colors you prefer.
Textured Ribbed Unisex Mittens
For a simple novice-friendly mitten, this is my go-to suggestion. It uses basic stitches to create a ribbed pattern that is functional, great for men, women, and children, and is easy to complete in no time.
Buffalo Plaid Muffins
Buffalo plaid is such a hugely popular pattern these days. This easy crochet mitten patterns idea is a great choice for a newbie. While you have to switch out colors of yarn, it’s still pretty basic to follow and is a project you can make in just a few hour’s time.
Chroma Color Block Mittens Pattern
Using basic stitches, you can create a fun chroma pattern on these mittens. Pick your favorite colors and create a gorgeous set of mittens that everyone would love receiving as a gift. Use neutral colors and this would easily work with your entire wardrobe.
Braided Cables Mitten Pattern
If you can’t tell already, I love a good cable patterned crochet project. This one takes cables to the next level with braiding. It’s definitely for an intermediate to advanced crocheter but is truly gorgeous once completed. I love that this pattern takes even the most basic color and turns it into a stunning look.
Chunky Waffle Stitch Mittens Pattern
Have you ever seen a crochet waffle pattern? I am totally in love with this chunky option! It gives you a ton of warmth with the chunky pattern and extra yarn but is also a fun way to add flare to your wardrobe and accessories.
Bubble Mittens Crochet Pattern
This bubble stitch is a great choice for making a pair of mittens. I love the example in a multi-color yarn, but it will look just as gorgeous in a solid color. The bubble stitch is an excellent choice for gifting.
Plaid Heart Mittens Pattern
The combination of the two mittens together creates a beautiful plaid heart! This is a fun idea for kids, but I would love a pair for myself. A basic stitch makes this good for novices but looks harder with the pattern included.
Dragon Tears Fingerless Gloves
Oh my goodness! How amazing is this pattern? It definitely will take a bit more time, but the dragon scale pattern is so unique! I’m adding this to my project list today. I need a pair to wear while typing to keep my hands warm!
Pattern: Heart Hook Home
Herringbone Fingerless Mittens Pattern
Herringbone crochet patterns are another of my favorites. I love the classic look. This fingerless mitten or glove also has a great accent at the wrist with a button. So beautiful and upscale.
Pattern: Charmed by Eve
Snow Drops Crochet Mitten Pattern
This snow drops pattern is so gorgeous! This shows using a variety of colors to create an ombre look that I love. The patterned lines of this mitten add a little bit of texture that really makes those colors pop.
Pattern: Left in Knots
3-Hour Chunky Crochet Mitten Pattern
Want a small project? This one is super easy to make and can be done in only 3 hours! It’s such a great easy weekend project and I love that I can whip these up and gift at the last minute!
Pattern: Make and Do Crew
Basic Fuzzy Mittens
For the ultimate in simple mittens, here is your pattern. Fuzzy, soft, easy for a newbie to create, and versatile for daily wear, this is by far one of the best beginner crochet patterns you will find.
Pattern: Lee Lee Knits
Beginner Friendly Crochet Mittens Pattern
In the past, I have often found easy to understand patterns on Melanie’s site, and this is no different. It’s truly a great addition to your project list and is one you will love making. Basic stitches make it ideal for beginners, but the cuff pattern adds a bit of uniqueness to the look that gives the beginner a feeling of accomplishment.
Pattern: Melanie Kham

15 Cozy Crocheted Fingerless Mitten Patterns
Where we live, the temperature of weather that many people would stereotype as being “fall” weather actually lasts a lot longer than you might think.
Sometimes we don’t even have to put on gloves, hats, or scarves until later into December, near Christmas time! That’s why late November and right after Thanksgiving is the perfect time for us to start collecting patterns and knitting small things that will keep us warm in chilly evenings without making us sweat all day. Fingerless mittens are the perfect example of what we mean! Of course, there are plenty of fingerless mittens that you can buy in stores, and they’ll probably be plenty comfortable and cute, but there’s just something incredibly satisfying and fulfilling about wearing or gifting something you’ve actually made yourself. That’s why we love crochet so much!
Just in case you love the idea of crocheting yourself or the people you love some brand new fingerless mittens this season but you’re in need of some inspiration and a few new patterns to try, here our 15 of our very favourite designs that we’ve actually made over the years.
1. Lacy Crochet fingerless gloves by Getting Hooked on Crafts
Have you been feeling really intent on learning lacy crochet techniques lately but you’re still somewhat of a beginner, so you don’t want to overwhelm yourself too quickly and end up giving up on the project in the end? In that case, here’s a great pattern that gets you a little bit of a lace effect but in a way that’s both simple to do and not too busy too look at. The small size of fingerless mitts really makes them the perfect project for learning new techniques on!
2. Simple crocheted fingerless gloves with buttons by Craftsy
Perhaps your priority in crocheting yourself some fingerless mittens lies less in creating them to feature a fancy stitch and a lot more heavily in making them look very neat and even, with perhaps just one simple embellishment that doesn’t detract from the finished product? In that case, this pattern might be your best bet! This one has some visual texture but it remains simple and avoids looking too busy.
3. Lacy mitts with crocheted butterflies by Beginner’s Crochet Patterns
Have you already mastered simple to moderate lace crochet work and you feel more than confident making some cute seashell inspired lace happen in a pair of fingerless mitts, but you’d to add a little something extra to them as well to really drive the whole fancy aesthetic home? In that case, we have a feeling you’re going to love these adorable lace butterfly mitts! They show you how to stitch the pattern, construct the gloves, and create and attach the little crocheted butterfly embellishment at the end.
4. Colour Stripey fingerless mitts by Crochet in Colour
Have you already got your basic stitches down and mastered but now you’re looking for a new technique to learn without getting into very complicated stitches that will throw you off? Then it sounds to use you’re in the perfect position to start practicing your colour striping! We love the way this pattern takes advantage of the opportunity to use a full range and spectrum of colours, striping on each row. This project will certainly get you lots of practice in by the time you’re finished!
5. Textured fingerless gloves by Calleigh’s Clips
Did you love the look of the simply crocheted texture mitts with the buttons that we showed you a little bit earlier because you loved the neat, even stitching pattern but you’d rather simplify that idea even more by skipping the button and making them smaller and shorter, rather than extending them further down your forearm the previous pattern? Then perhaps you’d prefer to make these cute little fingerless hand warmers instead!
6. Prairie Winds mitts by Mama in A Stitch
Have you always been a huge fan of the simple, subtle stitches that really make onlookers have trouble telling the different between knitting and crochet, especially since you love to do both? In that case, we think we’ve found just the pattern for you! These little gloves keep your palms and wrists warm with some simple ribbing while you type in the office on a chilly morning or take a quick talk down to the corner for your morning coffee with a friend.
7. Celtic Weave gloves by Over The Apple Tree
Are you scrolling through our list so far and thinking about how a little pattern in your stitching has never scared you off before, so there’s no reason not to put some into your fingerless mitts now? Then we definitely think you should try your hand at these Celtic weave style gloves! It might look a complicated stitch to do, but you’ll only have to try out their technique of pulling your stitches over top a few times to really get the hang of it well.
8. Owl fingerless gloves by Tampa Bay Crochet
Whether you’re primarily a knitter, mostly a crochet enthusiast, or perhaps a master at both, you’ll probably already be familiar with the classically adorable owl motif that’s so common in winter wear of all kinds.
After all, it’s just so cute and, as if that wasn’t a good enough reason to try it out, it’s surprisingly easy to do! That’s why we love making these adorable little owl fingerless mittens every year.
We can’t even count how many times we’ve given these mitts as a gift to friends and family!
9. Puff Stitch fingerless mittens by Hopeful Honey
Have you been scrolling through this list looking for a deceivingly simple stitch pattern that’s actually really visual and totally awesome looking, but will also let you learn something new? Then we’d suggest trying your hand at the puff stitch! It’s not dissimilar to some of the pulled across and criss-crossing stitch patterns you’ve seen already so far but it’s created purposely loosely so that the whole glove has some give in order to get that kind of loosely “puffed” effect.
10. DIY Crochet fingerless gloves by The Crafty Novice
Is this actually the first time you’ve ever tried making yourself a pair of crocheted fingerless mittens, so you’re looking for something very simple and quite quick, just to make sure you get it right? Perhaps you’ve actually been crocheting for years but now you’re in need of a simple pattern because you promised to teach a friend or family member. Either way, this pattern is one of the best beginner’s designs we’ve encountered when it comes to crocheting fingerless mitts! This is actually the very same pattern we used when we made our very first pair a few years back.
11. Kids’ Convertible Fingerless Mitts by Angi Tugushi
When our kids see us working with yarn, they always without hesitation, as us to “make them one too”.
It doesn’t even matter what it is! Sometimes, with the smaller projects fingerless mittens, we oblige, but we don’t actually find that our kids really wear their fingerless mitts that often because they’re either too cold or too hot.
That’s why we’ve started makin them these convertible mittens instead! They still get the warmth of having a full mitten available but they can flip them down into fingerless mittens whenever they feel the need. This pattern is also surprisingly simple given the detail required!
12. Owl Mittens with button eyes by The Green Dragonfly
Were you completely in love with the idea of making owl themed fingerless mittens just about the moment we mentioned them, but the monochrome owl silhouette design we showed you the pattern for earlier on our list wasn’t quite what you were picturing? We love that previous pattern a lot, but we also know all too well that sometimes you just need a version that has a little more colour and pizzazz. That’s why we adore this cute, colourful owl applique on a pair of simple mittens so much!
13. Super Simple fingerless gloves (with or without stripes) by Hippy Hooker
We know we already showed you one beginner’s pattern, but what if you were looking for something with a weave that’s a little bit tighter in the stitching, or perhaps a pattern that also helps guide you through the process of altering it a little bit later on when you’re ready to try something new? In that case, we’d suggest this simple tutorial that shows you first how to make a pair of neat, plain fingerless mittens and then, when you’re ready, how to make a stripy version that uses two colours!
14. Ivory and Red gloves with bows by Bobbin Bombshell
Perhaps you’re experienced enough at crochet that making yourself a pair of fingerless mittens in just about any size, style, or technique is a feasible idea for you so the most important part of the pattern is how much you love the overall look of the finished product? Well, if adorable embellishments on simple garments is the kind of style you love, these beautiful bow gloves might be precisely the kind of thing you’re looking for! We think these are adorably kawaii and we love how professional the finished product looks even though they’re surprisingly simple to make.
15. Octavo fingerless mitts by Knitting and So On
Are you a very experienced crochet enthusiast who loves incorporating as many colours, stitching patterns, and designs as possible to make something truly visually stunning, even in the simplest of garments? Then we’ve definitely got a pattern here that’s probably right up your alley! Check out how these gloves are made with a pastel green and purple colour gradient swirl in a thin fingering weight yarn. The finished product is so artistic that people will think you bought the gloves premade in a store.
