Gentle reminder: It has just come to my attention that many people are unaware that free patterns still have copyrights and it is not legal to distribute. I ask that if you like the pattern and want to tell your friends that you share the link to the pattern (found here: http://marlybird.wpengine.com/free-crochet-pattern-quick-mini-mitten-garland ).By doing so you are allowing me to make a little money via advertising which in turn makes it possible for me to keep designing fun and free patterns.

Quick Mini Mitten Garland
Sample Approx: 3 1/2″ tall x 1 3/4″ wide
5 sts = 1 3/4″ in half double crochet (gauge not vital for this project)
Any yarn smooth yarn will work for these but here are some of my favorites:
Lion Brand, “Amazing Yarn” (53% wool, 47% acrylic, 147 yds/50g). (Use this link for 35% discount!) This yarn will give the garland and completely unique look as the yarn has wonderful long color changes so your mittens will look Amazing!
Use a hook that will get you the size mitten you want. For the sample I used an H/8 (5m) (Marly uses Addi Crochet Hooks)
- Removable Stitch Markers (Marly uses these)
- Tapestry Needle
Stitches Used (and YouTube Video links to help you learn)
Make as many mini mitten motifs as you want in as many colors as you want.
