HanJan Fingerless Mitts and Boot Cuffs in Simply Crochet...

Simply Crochet Issue 10
It's so hard to believe that the wonderful Simply Crochet is on issue 10 already! It doesn't seem 5 minutes since I was designing some jam jar covers for issue 2!

This fabulous edition features a few HanJan designs - a cute bow headband, some boot cuffs and some fingerless bobble gloves. The gloves have gone down a storm!

Beautiful Bobble Mitts by HanJan

I tried to stay away from the boring designs that are out there an opted for something a little different - hence the bobbles. The pattern is really straightforward as a repetition of rows joined with a seam and a cute little edging in a contrast colour.....easy peasy.

Loads of people have said that they are making a stash of them for Xmas stocking fillers - such a great idea. These are the pictures I have come across so far... would love to see more if they are out there!

The lovely The Little Room of Rachell has written a little bit about the pattern and has some great tips on it too - you really can adapt the mitts to suit you by changing the length and width or the size of the thumb hole.

If you fancy a go at the pattern then grab your copy of issue 10 or you can get my similar but not the same pattern from Etsy (this pattern has the same bobbles design but no edging) almost as cute!

Get the pattern here!

Lots of exciting projects ahead - will be back soon with an Autumn Flowers's a sneaky peek...

  1. The mitts pattern is lovely and so simple to follow. I'm so pleased you came across the mitts I made! I'll be making lots more! Thank you for the pattern.
