Evie Berry Mittens - free crochet pattern-

Shown on a 6 year old

Shown on a 10 year old

 A crochet mitten pattern for kids aged 6-10ish! There's a reason why I'm so excited about this, it's because I searched tirelessly for a free mitten pattern that would fit a 6 year old girl... and couldn't find one. Okay, well I did find two patterns, but they were boring, bland and a bit confusing. It seems there are so many free patterns for babies, toddlers and adults, but we skip an entire age range. So here I am, I wrote my own. Luckily I have a 6 and a 10 year old available to try them on and test them out! Now these will probably fit a child maybe a year younger and maybe a year older, that's why I say 6-10ish. These will almost fit myself, just slightly small. If I added a few more rounds here and there, I could make them adult size. 

That all being said, there are ways you can change this pattern up a bit if you'd like to. I used two colors and made use of the Berry Stitch. But, you can just use one color throughout, or use several different colors. You can also omit the berry stitch entirely and just keep repeating the other rounds instead. So many ideas!

This pattern is written showing color changes for 2 colors and is explained throughout the pattern. There is a lot of repetition in instructions for the rounds, but the color changes for those rounds. However, this is a super simple pattern! Here we go...
