What You’ll Need To Crochet Baby Mittens

You will need some aran/worsted weight #4 yarn for these mittens. Your choice of main colour and an accent colour for the cuffs.

I have used Paintbox Yarn Simply Aran. But, you can use any type of #4 aran or worsted weight yarn you prefer.

You will need approximately 40g/64m/70yds of your chosen main colour, and 16g/ 26m/28yds of your cuff colour per pair.

Gauge:
2” square = 9 hdc x 5 rows for the cuff,
4 SPsc + ch1 sts x 9 rows for the main stitch.

I have used a 5mm hook for the cuff, and a 5.5mm hook for the main mitten. Adjust your hook sizes to meet the gauge if needed.

You will also need a yarn needle and scissors.

This pattern is written for 2 sizes. Babies hand sizes can vary greatly, the given age groups are an approximation only. Please use the finished measurements given in the size chart below to select a suitable size. These mittens do not have a separate thumb.

Baby Mittens Crochet Pattern-
Working the Spiked Moss Stitch Pattern:

The Moss Stitch (aka the Granite Stitch, Linen Stitch, or Woven Stitch) is made by working a Single Crochet followed by Chain 1 and skipping 1 along the row, turning and repeating the pattern working into the Chain 1 Spaces of the previous row.

For the Spiked Moss Stitch, instead of working a Single Crochet into the Chain 1 Space of the previous row, we will be making the stitch into the skipped stitch top of the row below.

When working your Spiked Single Crochet stiches (SPsc), insert your hook into the stitch below the ch1 sp, yarn over and draw up a loop and then elongate the loop to bring it level with the new row, as if you were to make normal single crochets along that row.

We will also be shaping the piece by increasing and decreasing stitches. Increases are made by working [SPsc, ch1, SPsc] all into the same stitch. When working back along that row, we will work a sc into the middle ch1 sp.

For decreases, we will be working a Spiked Single Crochet 2 Together Stitch (SPsc2tog). To do this, we will use the next 2 available stitch tops beneath ch1s to work each leg of the sc2tog stitch, ignoring the SPsc stitch in between them.

Infant Mittens Crochet Pattern

To make these mittens, we will start with the ribbed turn-up cuffs and work the rest of the mitten onto the edge of them. We will be working the mittens all in a flat piece, and will seam the mittens once complete.

Free Baby Crochet Mittens:
Start With Crocheting the Ribbed Cuffs

Make 2 as follows:
Using a 5mm hook and your chosen cuff colour, ch11/12,

R1.

Starting from the 2nd ch from hook, hdc in each ch, turn
(10/11 hdc sts)

R2.

ch1 (does not count as a stitch), hdc in the BLO of each st, turn

R3.-R12./R14.

Repeat R2. for a total of 10/12 rows.
(10/11 hdc sts)

Cut yarn leaving a long tail (approx. 8”) and pull through to fasten off.

Free Baby Mittens Crochet Pattern - Cuff

Your cuffs should measure 4.5/5” long by 2.5/2.75” wide, without stretching.

Top Tip: To help maintain a consistent gauge for the Right and Left mittens, I recommend working both simultaneously, a section at a time.

The Right and Left hands will be the same. Just keep the seamed edge along the pinky when wearing, allowing the increased area for the thumbs.

Crocheting the Main Baby mittens

We will now join our main colour along the edge of the cuff to work the main mitten. We will increase to widen for the thumb and then decrease around the fingertips.

When working along the edge of the cuff, we will work 3 slip stitches evenly along every 2 rows. Hooking through the leg of the hdc stitches, through both loops of the edge stitch top, and through the turning ch1 loop as indicated by the pins below.

Free Crochet Baby Mittens Crochet Pattern - Cuff Join

Make 2 as follows:
Switch to a 5.5mm hook,

R1.

Please note the different joining points for each size. We will be Joining yarn with a sl st into the last stitch worked of the cuff. For Size A, join into the leg of the hdc stitch. For Size B, join through the back loop only of the stitch top, sl st x17/21 evenly along the edge of the cuff, turn
(18/22 sl sts including the joining sl st)
