Easy Crochet Mitten Pattern

These mittens and an ear warmer were made from one skein of yarn. I used Red Heart Colorscape yarn. I love the color variation on the mittens and they are so soft and comfortable. These mittens really were very easy and quick to make. They are sized large. I am now ready for the cold weather with these easy crochet mittens. Check out the free PDF pattern below.
