Looking for a pattern for knitting or crocheting mittens? How about a tutorial for creating upcycled pairs? You’ve come to the right place!

If you knit, there are many patterns online – we like this Easy-Knit Mittens by Lion Brand. (link website: http://lionbrand.com/patterns/80673B.html).

If you crochet, why not try this Team USA pattern by Lion Brand – http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L32398.html?noImages=

And for those who are looking to create some upcycled mittens, using old sweaters, here’s a great tutorial! Thank you, Adam at lifehacker.com, for creating this video. http://lifehacker.com/5714457/turn-your-ugly-christmas-sweaters-into-warm-winter-mittens

Here’s another video tutorial for upcycled mittens. This one uses a single sweater and hand-sewing. You can use more than one sweater (one for the front, one for the back), and you can use a machine to stitch it faster. This was sent to us by Mittens for Detroit supporter Lori Colburn!
