Introducing the November Mittens. These are the perfect simple modern knit-like ribbed crochet mittens. They make a great make for yourself or as a gift for someone you love. Because of the knit-like texture, these mittens do not contain any gaps or holes, so they will keep you quite warm when venturing outdoors in the cold fall or winter months.

These mittens feature a knit-like ribbed texture. They are worked in one piece that incorporates short rows for shaping along the way and adding the thumb. If short rows intimidate you, don't worry...they are quite simple, and reference photos are included to help you along the way.
Fit + Sizing
The mittens are designed to fit the hands of an average adult female with a hand circumference of between approximately 7-7.5" and hand length of approximately 7". If you'd like to adjust the size slightly, I would recommend going down a hook size to make mittens a little smaller and up a hook size to make them a little bigger. Due to ribbed design, mitten is quite stretchy width-wise. They should not be super oversized, but should also not be tight.
As written, you'll need:
approximately 190 yds (or just 2 hanks) of KnitCrate Audine Wool Mellow, or an equivalent yarn.
Other materials you'll need:
5mm crochet hook
Audine Wool Mellow is a 80% alpaca and 20% tencel blend that is a complete joy to work with. It is super soft and very luxurious, but also really forgiving and takes well to frogging. I frogged this design about 129391287409860235984712 times before I got it right, and the yarn held up so well! It is labeled as a category 5 bulky weight yarn, however, I feel this is closer to a worsted/heavy worsted/aran weight yarn, so keep this in mind if/when selecting a substitute. If substituting, I highly recommend making sure you make a gauge swatch. Small differences in gauge can lead to big differences in project outcome. For more on gauge, you can read this blog.
