Friday Freebie: Crochet Mittens

This week I’ve been looking through my “back catalogue”, the many and varied knitting and crochet designs which really need a revamp.

First up, these gorgeous mittens. I first blogged about them way back in 2011, I like to think my pattern writing and my photography have  come on a bit since then. But, the pattern still works and makes a great first project for a beginner. You can find the pattern here.

I remember taking them on their first outing to Sugar Junction in Manchester, where fellow designer Emma Varnam declared them “Genius” and subsequently wrote a lovely post about them which you can read here. There’s a rather lovely photo of them on flickr too.

The pattern may be an old one, but that doesn’t mean it should be forgotten. I have plans to ” revamp” it. Those back loop only ridges lend themselves so well to frills and ruffles. What would you do to “revamp” them or make them truly your own? I’d love to know.
