Frosty Drops Mittens Free Crochet Pattern

The winter is almost here and we all know there's nothing better than warm mittens made by yourself. ☃❆
Today i am sharing my Frosty Drops Mittens crochet pattern. It uses  popcorn stitches which pop out like little balls.
Keep your or someone else's hands warm and toasty this winter! 😊
I also have a matching Frosty Drops Beanie Pattern.
Hope you enjoy this pattern! Happy crocheting!😉







Materials Used:

  • DK weight yarn ( I used AUDINE WOOLS by Knitcrate, Halo DK weight, 216 metres – 100 grams, 50% – Alpaca, 30% Wool – Merino, 20% Manufactured Fibers - Nylon / Polyamide). 62 grams needed for this pattern (both mittens).
  • 4.0mm (US size G6) crochet hook.
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Stitch marker


Skill Level: Easy to Intermediate.

Size:

The pattern is written in one size (M) which will fit an average adult woman. You can size the mittens up or down by changing a yarn weight as well as using a different crochet hook.

Gauge:

7 stitches x 5,5 rows = 5cm (2 inches) in half double crochet

Pattern Notes:

  • Mittens are crocheted in the round.
  • They are worked from the top down.
  • Popcorns are only crocheted on the upper side of the mittens.
  • Ch2 at the beginning of each round (except for the Round 23 – 28) counts as the first hdc.
  • Join with a sl st. on top of the ch2 at the end of each round (except for the Round 23 – 28 and Round 7 of the Thumb).



Abbreviations (US terms):

st. - stitch
sl st. – slip stitch
ch – chain stitch
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
hdc2tog – 2 half double crochet closed together
dc – double crochet

dc4popcorn -  4 double crochet popcorn stitch – work 4dc in the same stitch. Drop loop from the hook, insert your hook from front to back into the first dc. Place dropped loop on the hook and pull through stitch.

Weave in all ends using a yarn needle.
