Quite simple and worked in single crochet only, these mittens are available in three different sizes: women, child and pre-school age. Mrs. Murdock’s Mittens by Brenda K. B. Anderson is a super quick and easy pattern that looks great by itself or with a matching hat and scarf. This is the perfect stash buster project meant to use up some small and extra-small balls of leftover yarn.

Approximately 200 yards of worsted weight yarn in color of your choice for Women’s size. (I used Ella Rae washable yarn in 75% Acrylic, 25% wool).
