Mitten Ornament Crochet Pattern

Day 3 of the 12 Days of Crochet Christmas is this cosy little mitten ornament crochet pattern. Despite enjoying a Summer Christmas here in New Zealand, I still love all the wintery things.

Red crocheted mitten with a white bow lying on a wood round.

This little mitten ornament crochet pattern is just too cute. Use as a gift topper, tree decoration or make them into a cosy garland or advent calendar.

About the Pattern

This is a quick and easy pattern with no sewing. The thumb and lower part of the hand are worked separately before being joined together.

I kept my embellishments simple but you can totally get creative here.

Finished Size

The finished mitten measures approximately 2.5″ (6.5cm) long. Size may vary depending on tension and materials used.


Gauge is not important in this pattern. However, using a different yarn and hook size will change the size of the finished item.


  • Pieces are worked in a continuous spiral starting with a magic ring unless otherwise specified. Mark the first stitch of each round with a removable stitch marker.
  • The thumb is worked separately and then joined to the hand section.
