Crocheted Oven Mitt

Crochet Oven MittI followed the schematics for the bath mitt, and tried to make a crocheted one, but in single crochet stitches, the fabric was so stiff and dense that I deemed it an oven mitt before it was all said and done. In retrospect, I should've either used double crochet stitches or a bigger hook. Also I wish I'd crocheted this in the round, but still, I enjoyed the practice of seaming crochet. At first, I tried the whipstitch, but didn't really like that look, so then I used the equivalent of the mattress stitch in knitting (is it called the same thing in crochet?) and was very pleased with the seamless look. It took exactly one ball of Peaches-n-Creme, and with the other ball left over, I may just make a twin.


  1. Wow, you've been busy! The oven mitt looks great! I personally dislike single crochet, because it seems so slow, and it also hurts my wrist (I broke it a year ago and it still hurts sometimes when I crochet). I also prefer crocheting hats, etc in the round, because I don't like the gap I get when I join rounds with a slip stitch.

  2. Love it, can you post the pattern for the oven mitt?

  3. Sorry, I made this so long ago that I forgot exactly what I did. Maybe someday...

    In the meantime, Bernat has a free pattern that's very similar. You'll have to register for a free account, and it's totally worth it:
