Mini Country Cottage Mitten Crochet Pattern
Check out this mini version of my Country Cottage Mittens pattern! This Mini Country Cottage Mitten is such a cute gift for the holidays! Use as a gift card holder, tree ornament, fill with treats, or attach to wrapped gifts! This mini crochet mitten uses minimal yarn so it’s a great project for using up left over yarn you have laying around!
The Mini Country Cottage Mitten features a beautiful texture, ribbed cuff, and cute, little thumb! You can add a hanging loop so it can be used as a tree ornament, attached to gifts, or you can even string them into a garland! The possibilities are endless for what you can use this for and who you could gift it to.
This mini mitten pattern is the perfect addition to the Country Cottage Collection! It’s based off my original Country Cottage Mittens pattern! If you enjoy this mini pattern be sure to check out the original after to make yourself a wearable pair!
My Country Cottage Collection is filled with some of my most favorite patterns! They feature the most gorgeous textures and they’re quick and easy to make! Not only did I make a mini version of the mittens but I’ve also made mini versions of the Country Cottage Stocking and Country Cottage Beanie!
You can get the ad-free, printable PDF for these mini patterns in my Etsy shop and Ravelry. This PDF includes all 3 of the patterns in one!
After coming up with the idea to make a Mini Country Cottage Stocking I wanted to see what other Country Cottage designs would work great as a mini version! The mitten was an obvious choice!
This mini mitten is the perfect size for a gift card or to add little treats into. It also looks super cute hanging from the tree! It’s full of the same great texture as the rest of the Country Cottage Collection and it works up so fast!
For my mini mitten I used Red Heart Super Saver but feel free to use any medium (4) weight yarn! One of the best parts of this pattern is that is uses a minimal amount of yarn so you can use any left over yarn you may have in your stash!
