Linked Flop Top Mittens ~ Crochet Charity Drive

Share this

I’m so happy to take part in yet another year of the Crochet Charity Drive! If you’re not already, please join the Crochet Charity Drive Facebook group to see all the wonderful mitten patterns coming out soon! The Charity Group also various other drives throughout the year so be sure to stick around! But for now, check out the free fingerless mitten crochet pattern below!

I’m all about wearing fashionable crochet, but there comes a point where function is more important than fashion. This is especially true when it comes to mittens. Having a warm mitten is a must for me as I don’t like being cold one bit! That being said, I also want to be able to block an occasional snowball from my boys without the mittens getting wet and yet have the ease to pull out my phone and snap some photos of my children! This free fingerless mitten crochet pattern offers just that!

Remaining Part of Mitten

Flip Flop Top of Mitten inside out temporarily. This will make it easier when joining the next section using the back loops from Round 7 above.

R2-3: Ch 3, LDC in same and each st around, join – 28, 32, 36 sts

Flip Tip of Mitten right side out. You can always fold Flop Top of Mitten at Round 7 to make it easier to continue.

  1. This pattern is amazing! I had never heard of an LCD stitch before but I love it, and how close the stitches are together. Working on my left handed mitten now, and my daughter also wants a pair. Thank you for sharing.

  2. I started these, so far I had no problem making the mitten top, but I’m lost on the following part( ch 14 starting on the farthest back loop ss ) is there any photo tutorial on how to do it?

    1. Mitten I don’t have any pictures of this part. The chain is this part of the mitten though. When you slst in the back loops of the tip of the mitten, you’re joining the two parts of the mitten. Does that help?
