I finished the ruffled cuffs on my Novice Mittens earlier this week, and they are ready to wear! I can’t believe how quickly this pattern worked up, and the decorative cuffs were just as simple to crochet as the mittens themselves.
The 3 different layers of ruffles on the cuffs are created by crocheting behind previous rounds. Rounds 1 and 2 of the cuffs are pretty straightforward, and then round 3 is worked behind round 2 and into the skipped single crochets in round 1. Round 7 is also worked behind round 6 and into the skipped single crochets in round 5. This creates adorable tiers that really set this design apart and give the mittens a pretty and polished look.
I love instant gratification, so this fast and fun pattern hit the spot for me. The yarn is truly scrumptious and was a dream to work with. If you weren’t able to join me in the crochet along, you can still get your Novice Mittens crochet kit and stitch up these adorable mittens for yourself or someone special. They are a luxurious treat for your hands you can enjoy all winter long!
