13 Cozy Winter Mitten Crochet Patterns for Kids
When I was a kid and winter rolled around, you could not get me to dress warmly. If I wasn’t pulling off my coat or hiding my socks, I was finding some other way to avoid the bulky layers of winter. The one thing you could never get me to wear was a pair of mittens. Perhaps that’s because they weren’t cozy, warm crochet mittens!

Something even a kid who hates mittens would want to wear. They’re imaginative just like a kid’s mind. They’re also great for making snowballs and making snowmen too!
Search through this list of 13 creative crochet mitten patterns for kids and see if you can find the perfect pair for your little one. From sharks to fuzzy cuffs, these patterns won’t disappoint.
Snowfall Crochet Mittens
This pattern is so much fun to make. The colored stitches look knitted. To make the different colored stitches, you will be working using the tapestry crochet technique. This snowfall technique is a bit different, however, because you will be finishing the stitch with the first color.

Bernat Blanket Crochet Mittens
This pattern is so easy and can work up very quickly. You can actually complete both mittens in about 30 minutes. They are child-size but you can make them bigger by adding in another increase round.
Baby/Toddler Star Mittens
If this is your child’s first winter and old enough to experience snow, having mittens will help to protect her little hands with the subzero temperature. The pattern is fairly simple and can be completed in a single night for an experienced crocheter.
These mittens were designed using the Tunisian crochet technique. The front and back were crocheted at the same time and then the open end was slip stitched together. The final mitten is about 6” around and 6” long without the cuff. You can easily adjust the size by increasing/decreasing the number of rows and stitches per row.

Darla’s Easy-On Mittens
This is a simple pattern, almost completely done in one piece. You may have to stitch once, or twice, at the base of the thumb to close a small gap formed between the thumb and index finger but the rest of the mitten is very solid in form and warm.
