Easy Crochet Mittens

These easy crochet mittens mittens are so quick and easy to make. Although this is a simple pattern it can be easily adapted for the more advanced crocheter by missing out the first row and adding an edging in its place.

If you don't like the twisted cord, you can use ribbon instead or a length of plaited yarn.
