Hello and welcome! Today we are going to learn how to crochet the Cozy Latte Mittens! They are quick to make and super soft – I’m sure you’ll love them!
As the cold weather approaches, I love to bring out my cozy mittens and these ones are no exception! Worked in the Caron Latte Cakes they are super soft giving them a great feel. Of course you may substitute this yarn for another of your choice.
Easy Crochet Mittens:
These mittens are simple, employing simple stitches such as the half double crochet (a favourite of mine!) and slip stitch. The ribbing for the cuff is worked first in rows, and then the rest of the mitten is worked in rounds. Both mittens are worked exactly the same, there is no difference between the left and right!
For my mittens, I did cut the Caron cakes in places in order to ensure that my two mittens were exactly the same colour wise. In the instructions you will also see that before working the top of the mitten, I cut the yarn and worked the thumb to make sure that the thumb would be the same colour as the body of the mitten. As always, though, feel free to be creative with your own colour schemes!
The Caron Latte Set:
This pattern is the third in a set which includes a puff stitch slouch hat and easy button up cowl. All three patterns include video tutorials and can be made using only two Latte Cakes!

– In order to get my mittens to match as far as the colour changes are concerned, when I started the second mitten I started at the same colour change in the cake as I had for the first. This meant that I needed to cut a few colors out of the cake in order to get the one needed.
