Today I have Santa mittens to celebrate the Christmas season. These crochet Santa Mittens keep your hands in warm through the Winter & Christmas time.
Gifting season is coming soon!
I’m currently working on Holiday Mitten Patterns for kids. I hope you will love these patterns as a gift idea because they are easy to crochet in a few hours with less than 150 yards. Kids will love to wear these fun and festive mittens on colder days while they’re outside and playing. Check out the Snowman mittens and Strawberry Mittens previously published on the blog. And there are a few more coming soon so stay tuned.
