The Alma Mitten Pattern was the first crochet pattern I ever released back in 2018. I had been asked by a friend to make a pair of chunky mittens. When I was searching for a pattern to use all I could find was knit patterns! So I decided to try and make a pair on my own without following a pattern. I was so happy with how they turned out and I decided to write up the pattern.

For this pattern I used Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick. Thick and Quick is one of my favourite yarns to use for all my projects. It is an acrylic blend, with 20% wool and 80% acrylic. I always tell people it has the warmth of wool but because of the acrylic blend, it is very soft. Not itchy like those wool sweaters your Grandma used to make you! Since it is a super chunky yarn, the mittens work up very quickly, so you can be wearing them in no time.
I named the Alma Mitten Pattern after my late Grandmother. She was the one who taught me how to crochet and I wanted to honour her by naming my first pattern after her. After all, Leah & Stitch would not exist today if it wasn't for her teaching me how to crochet.
This is a beginner crochet pattern, and you will need to know the following techniques: double crochet, slip stitch, double crochet 2 stitches together, front post double crochet, back post double crochet and working in the round.
