I love a free pattern, so when it came from one of my favourite creators, I was over the moon! It went straight to the top of my 'To Make' list.
The Merry Christmas Mitts pattern by HanJan Crochet (Hannah Cross) is well written and can be completed very quickly.
The pattern uses one colour yarn, but I used two; Patons Smoothie DK in Blue and Lilac Mix. I think they compliment each other well.
I used a 4mm hook, as recommended on the yarn label.
I had to add a few extra rows as the glove was a little too snug. I carefully worked out my additional stitches so the shell pattern would still work.
As Hannah says, these are just the thing for last minute stocking fillers... though I think they're also just the thing for me!
