Feel Good Mittens – A Quick & Easy Crochet Pattern

My inspiration for this pattern came from my desire to make a pair of cozy pair of mittens that were also warm enough to withstand the cold (and sometimes harsh) Canadian winters. As Canadians, we grow up learning that winter is always just a few seasons away. We have learned to adapt for this reason. We have also learned to create things that will enable us to go about our day to day lives as well as enjoy outdoor activities for the duration of this long season. I like to think that these gloves allow for both these scenarios. They promote movement, comfort and functionality. If you are pumping your gas in a snowfall, taking the dog for a walk with a friend or ambushing your family with a snowball fight, they will always be there to keep your fingers warm and hands dry. 

I asked some friends and family who I have gifted these gloves to over the years why they love them. A few of the responses that I got back were “they are comfortable”, “they are SO soft” and “they photograph well” from a goofy sibling. All of these are things I had kept in mind when creating this pattern. Some of the reasons why I have chosen to gift them are because they make great stocking stuffers. If you have a large family like I do, having a pattern that is also quick and easy to make is important as life gets a little busier heading towards the holiday season! 

The Yarn:

For this pattern we are using Bernat Blanket yarn. I LOVE this yarn! It is a deliciously soft, chenille type yarn that is most often used for baby blankets. However, it has so much versatility that it makes it a great choice for this project as it is machine washable (Mom’s favorite phrase!) as well as dryer friendly! So after a few hours outside playing in the snow with your loved ones, feel free to take them off and pop them straight into the dryer while you warm up with hot cocoa and the perfect amount of marshmallows. 

If you’ve never made a pair of mittens before, don’t worry! This beginner friendly pattern uses only single crochet and a few chains! I’ll walk you through step by step.

Adult Woman – I’ll show you how to add or subtract length for a custom fit.

Stitches Used:

Make your SLST tight

After CH1, pull your yarn tight

Feel Good Mittens Pattern


Rnd 1: Magic Ring – 6 SC, SLST to 1st ST. (6)

**SC over your yarn tail as you work, trim excess at the end of round.**

Rnd 2: CH1, 2SC in each ST. (12)

Rnd 3: CH1, *2SC, 1SC* Repeat until 2STS remain. 1SC next 2 ST. (18)

Rnd 4: CH1, 1SC in each ST. (18)

Rnd 5 – 12: Repeat Rnd 4. (18)

** you can customize the length if you want, just be sure to leave room for

the thumb hole round (Picture M1). If you don’t leave the extra space here, you will

have extra space at the fingertips when your mitten is complete.**

Rnd 13: (Thumb) CH1, 1SC next 2ST, CH6, SK2 STS, 1SC in each ST. (16 SC, 6 CH)

Rnd 14: CH1, 1SC in each ST including CH6. (22)

** Try to work in the ‘back bump’ of your CH. This will help to avoid gaps when we join our thumb.**

Rnd 15: 1SC in each ST. (22SC)

Rnd 16: *1SC next 2ST, SC2TOG* Repeat until 2 STS remain. 1SC next 2 sT.(17)

Rnd 17-21: 1SC in each ST. (17)

Tie off. Move on to thumb.


Rnd 1: Join yarn with SLST to bottom right of thumb hole (Picture T1),

CH1, 1SC in same ST, 1SC next 4 ST, SC2TOG ( Picture T2), 1SC, SC2TOG, 1SC in last ST (Picture T3). (9)

**SC over your yarn tail as you work, trim excess at the end of round.**

Rnd 2-3: CH1, 1SC in each ST. (9)

Rnd 4: CH1, SC2TOG, 1SC next 3 ST, SC2TOG, 1SC next 2 ST. (7)

Rnd 5: CH1, 1SC in each ST. (7)

Rnd 6: CH1, SC2TOG, 1SC next 2 ST, SC2TOG, 1SC. (5)

Tie off. Turn your mitten inside out. Using your darning needle, weave your tail through the top of each ST on thumb and pull tight to close. Weave your ends. Repeat for second mitten.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this warm and cozy mitten pattern! At the end of every winter when you tuck them away, I hope you look forward a little more to next year; when you can pull them out as the first snowfall happens and fall in love all over again. Just like I have.

  1. I have crocheted off and on for 55 years and was never brave enough to try mittens. I now am the proud creator of 6 pair of feel good mittens. Thanks for a wonderful pattern!

  2. This was my first pair of mittens and I’m no longer intimidated by them! Mine came out kind of tight; I’ll use more stitches or a larger hook next time, but overall I’m pleased!

    1. Thank you for sharing your first mitten victory with me! I’m so proud of you for trying something new! I think a larger hook size would work for next time.
