Valentines' Mittens

Hello crocheters! This is my second project for Valentines this year. I designed these mittens to include the same heart pattern I used in my Valentines' Costars. These mittens are really easy and quick to make, they will take you maybe a couple of hours to make, and they require so little yarn you'll need less than 2 oz. (50 g) to finish them. So, if you are out of thoughts and running out of time, and still want to crochet a Valentines inspired piece, give these mittens a try.

Skill level: Intermediate
