Crochet pattern. Half Mittens

Half Mittens is the perfect fingerless mittens crochet pattern for most crocheters who like to try new and unique patterns and stitches. It works for rehearsed beginners as well as very advanced crocheters.

NOTE. The Half Mittens crochet pattern was released on February 24th 2024.
I forgot to add it to the website too. Thank you to all who already found and downloaded it.

The mittens are worked bottom-up - from the cuff and up. With a built-in thumb gusset, they are as simple as possible. There are no seams and therefore a minimal number of loose ends to weave in.

AND - Fingerless gloves make it possible to use the mobile.

Half Mittens Pattern Details

Languages. The pattern is available in English and Danish.

The English pattern uses US terms but it is fairly easy to 'translate' to UK terms. Those few times it says sc (US - single crochet), it should be translated into dc (UK - double crochet stitch).

Sizing. Child (6-8) and Woman (S/M). Tips for altering the sizes are included in the pattern.


Find a lovely soft yarn with a little flexibility to get the best gloves ever. This could be a soft Wool Sock yarn blend.

Yarn weight. Fingering (Fingering. 210m/50gr (230y/1.76 oz) or slightly lighter. A heavier yarn can result in a dense and thick fabric.

Yarn usage. One yarn ball of 200-210m is enough for a pair of mittens.

Hook Size

The mittens are designed for a hook size 5mm (US H/8, UK 6).

However, a couple of testers preferred a smaller hook and looser stitches. This is not unusual when working waistcoat stitches. Use what works for you and gives you the required gauge/tension.
