    I do not have access to this kind of yarn without ordering online (and paying crazy shipping fees!) Is there a comparable yarn that could be used?

    Suzanne says

    Oh, thank you so much!! Love the beanie, & the matching mitts take it over the top…can’t wait to start :-)

    I was working on my 2nd ups and downs hat last night and was thinking that I needed to make up some fingerless gloves to go with it! Thanks for being a step ahead! :) :)

    Great pattern on the hat. Have made several for charity. Will now make the gloves as well. Thank you for posting the pattern. Can you tell me where you got the buttons from or the name of a good button website with fun buttons. I’m making these for kids, so I’d like something a little more lively.

    Thanks,

      Tamara Kelly says

      Hi Kat! Thank you! I got the buttons at my local JoAnn Fabrics – they’ve got lots of fun ones these days!

    Shannon Fuentes says

    Absolutely awesome! I whipped up one of the pair before starting work this morning. I will make the second one while on my lunch break. Then I can just dig through the huge collection of buttons I inherited from my Grammie when she passed away to find 4 matching buttons because I will be making the hat right after work while watching the news tonight.

    Would I be able to use this pattern for a possible CAL at my LYS? I am teaching crochet there on Saturdays and would love to use this pattern to introduce people to some different techniques. I refer a lot of people to your blog when they are just learning because your videos are phenomenal. I have also played with the idea of using your videos during my class, especially to show the “newbies” the basics. I hold my hook and yarn very differently than most people (and I yo in the opposite direction as well, but it works for me) so I feel that some people are just focused on the way I hold a hook and not learning the technique.

    Like you, I am also “self-taught” – my very first pattern was a bed doll from Fibre Crafts called Peppermint Patty. It took me 2 months to figure out everything and make her, but she was a much beloved gift for a little girl’s 4th birthday. I still have all my Fibre Crafts doll patterns and even though I don’t make bed dolls for selling any more, I remember every single one I ever made, who bought them or received them as a gift and what city or country the doll is in (my MIL has 3 of my dolls in a little village in Mexico. I learned to crochet long before the days of the internet, but having the internet has enhanced my skills. I have 30 years under my belt and am enjoying passing the love of crochet on to other people. I learned how to knit about 3 or 4 years ago, and thanks to the internet and the very passionate owners of my LYS, I have really improved my skills in that craft tremendously in the last 6 months, but my first love will always be crocheting.

    Thank you for your fabulous patterns and I really look forward to make a bunch of these sets for Christmas gifts. My daughters are both in college in cities that get quite cold (one in NYC and the other right outside of Boston), so these will be great gifts for all their college friends that they are going to need gifts for. Again, thank you!

      😀 Thank you so much Shannon! I really appreciate it!

      I’m so glad you enjoy the pattern! You are welcome to use it for a CAL at the LYS! I do ask that you hand out the URL and have everyone print out their own copy before the CAL starts if possible. (Since visits is how I make my income 😉 )

    I love this pattern & got to the last step of braiding the Quadtr & have no idea what to do!! I don’t understand how to do it!! So bummed! Any tips!

    Amy says

    I love the beanie pattern, can’t wait to try the mittens. I’ve even created an infinity cowl using the same stitches. Love it!

    Angelica says

    ¡Wow! What a pretty and different set! I love it, I want it, I’ll make it as soon as possible, thanks a lot for sharing, Tamara Hugs from Spain :)

    Kati says

    Hey! LOVE THESE! I just made a pair using WE and wanted to know how to adjust for a thicker yarn.
    Thanks again for the pattern!

    • 41

      Tamara Kelly says

      Hi Kati, thank you! To adjust for a thicker yarn, just wrap the first row around your wrist to get started with your custom size – as long as you have an even number of stitches, you’ll be all set!

  10. 42

    says

    I love the gloves. I am a self taught crocheter and learn from free patterns or tutorials. I did my left one last night but when I connect a row, I do the slip stitch and chain however many, but I end up with a seam. And the seam is right on the top of the hand when I put the glove on. Any help?

    Maren says

    Thank you for this pattern. This is my first crochet project since elementary school and surprisingly easy with your How-to videos.
    Love, love, love the wrist warmers. The pattern is so beautiful…

    Belinda says

    Someone mentioned in the comments that they had made an infinity cowl to match on their own but do you have a pattern for that or for a shorter length cowl?

    Melanie says

    I think I have made 25 pairs of these. Everyone I know wants a pair. Thanks for such a wonderful, stylish pattern!

    Hello,
    Thank you for this amazing pattern. These mitts are soooo cute and were pretty simple to make. I am having a little trouble finishing with the QuadTr braid though. Please help.

    Thank you so much for sharing this pattern! I love making them, I was asked to make some for a friend and now I sold a few…I posted it in my etsy…credits to you and link in the description of course :) Can we send you pics? I mean…if you like seeing them. I also posted on Instagram and used your name as the hashtag :)

      I’ll look for the hashtag! 😀 Also, you’re welcome to share pics on the Moogly Facebook page, or you can email them to me. 😀 Thank you!

    Lisa H says

    I made these for my daughter for Christmas with the matching hat. They turned out great. I made a matching infinity scarf using the same stitches that also turned out great. I bet I can make matching leg warmers, lol. She aksed me for leg warmers a while back. This was an awesome pattern. Thanks so much for sharing :)

    Wendy says

    I love these! My hubby came up with a wonderful idea- instead of buttons, use a small crocheted flowers! Oh, the possibilities…

    Darla says

    Thank you for this pattern and the video tutorials. These fingerless mittens are adorable. It took me a minute to figure out the braid but it really makes the mittens!

    Julee says

    It’s been a long time since I was excited about crochet. I learned to chain in first grade, so by the time I was 40 I was beyond bored & moved on to knitting. Still a hardcore knitter, but am sooo excited by these patterns! Yay! Even learned some new things while hooking, so that was icing on the cake. Made hat, mitts & boot toppers for my 17 yr old daughter. Now it’s my turn, & I’m still pumped up about it. Thanks so much for the blog & reigniting my interest in my old hobby

    rAMONA says

    I REALLY LOVE THIS PATTERN… I HAVE ALREADY MADE 3 HATS (ALL FOR MYSELF) USING RED HEART SUPER SAVER AND THEY CAME OUT GREAT!! I GET A LOT OF COMPLIMENTS AND NOW I AM WORKING ON THE 4TH ONE FOR A CO-WORKER WHO IS IN LOVE WITH MY HATS. THANK YOU FOR THE GREAT PATTERN.

    sarah says

    Great pattern! These work up really quick and fit a ladies hand well using Red Heart Super Saver 4 weight 100% acrylic yarn using an I/9 5.50mm hook.

    Michelle says

    I just created an ear warmer pattern based off of he gloves as a gift. My sister doesn’t wear hats and I live the hat that matches this. The ear warmer came out very cute. I would like to show it to you and also link back to your page when I post the pattern as you are the inspiration and I never would have done this without your pattern

    Lynn rosenbarker says

    I went online a few days ago to refresh my knowledge of the few stiches that my grandmother taught me over 40 years ago and saw this pattern. I sat down thinking I was just going to try a few stitches, and because of the great tutorials and easy directions I finished one glove in just a few hours. I was amazed at how cute it was. Too bad I started out with a small ball of yarn and only had enough to do one!!!! I never thought it would have come out good enough to use my first time around. I can’t wait to make a pair and I think all my daughters and daughter in laws will be getting these next Christmas. They work so great with the cheap little gloves that they sell in all colors. Thank you for making it so easy and for offering the free site that makes it available to so many.

    Omgoodness. If i could hug you i would! Just whipped up 5 pair of these mitts. Totally in love. I only changed the cuff part. I only completed one row because i have small hands and wrists and didnt want to cover my jewelery on my wrist. Still beautiful

    Susanna BEncomo says

    I love this pattern. I’m not a novice crocheted but I don’t understand row one. How do I make a starting chain of fdc? I would love to make these for my daughter who just had hand and wrist surgery. Thank you.

      Tamara Kelly says

      Hi Susanna! Thank you! You can click right on “FDC” in the first round instructions to go to the tutorial. :) Best wishes for your daughter’s speedy recovery!

    Leslee says

    I’m always looking for ideas for my 3 nieces for Christmas. I decided on fingerless gloves and boot cuffs this year. I came across your post and instantly loved the pattern. I used the same to make the boot cuffs and I know they will love them. Thank you so much for sharing this easy, beautiful pattern. I also appreciate the links to the video tutorials. I picked up some helpful hints. Thank you very much!

    Elizabeth says

    I made a set of these for all of the women in my family as Christmas presents along with a headband ear warmer. Since the pattern for the headband called for a flower motif, I added a small flower around the loop to be connected to the button, and sewed a button onto the center of the flower of the headband. Made for an adorable set that worked up very nicely. I’m making up the hat for myself right now. I’d love to see a pattern for a complimenting scarf!

    Love the fingerless mitts as well as the slouchy beanie. I made both for my 7 years granddaughter who loves them. Thank you!!!!

    Annie says

    I never did crochet before and I think that not only it’s a fun and quick pattern, it’s also a wonderful way to learn and practice basic techniques. I am so glad I started with this pattern. No teaching book could have done as well. Many thanks!

    Mary ducker says

    I LOVE the fingerless mitts as well as the slouchy beanie. My daughter and I now have two hats and pairs of mitts each. The only thing I did change on the fingerless mitts is I added one more row on the end which is a row of scallop stitches. But we both adore the hats and the mitts, so thanks loads for sharing!!! I can’t wait to whip up some more for Christmas!!! I’m already getting requests for the beanies, which I call “mooglies”
