Mitten Ornament/Gift Card Holder

mitten ornament gift card holder

Well hello there!

It’s week 2 of the six week Christmas ornament/gift card holder pattern series. This week I created an adorable little mitten with a snowflake detail!

This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, please see my disclosure policy.

This ornament is crocheted using size 10 crochet thread. There are no difficult stitches and you can easily whip one of these up in a short time.

I was actually thinking about making a whole slew of these for my tree this year, just because I thought they were so cute. You could make them all in one color for a more color-themed tree or you could make them in every color of the rainbow! How fun is that!

The ornament created for week 1 — the Stocking Ornament/Gift Card Holder (that you can see at the link if you missed it) included a crocheted hanger. This time, I found these sweet little wire hangers at Hobby Lobby and I couldn’t wait to use them. You have the option to use a crocheted hanger or the wire. The instructions for the crocheted hanger are at the end of the pattern.

This mitten uses very little thread from one of those usually giant spools you can buy and thread is usually pretty inexpensive. You could probably make 50 mittens from one spool. (That’s just a guess, but I have a ton left over.)

Is that what the thread is called? A spool? Or would it be a skein? I don’t know. Spool sounds good. πŸ˜‰ We’ll go with that.

  1. Now that the grandchildren are older, my husband and I give them gift card so we now they can get what they want. Have a few patterns for “gift cards” patterns. I just love this mitten with snowflake. Will sure be a new addition for their tree this year. Thank you for freely sharing your pattern. Much appreciated.

    1. You’re so welcome, Jill! I’m so glad that you like the pattern and will be able to use it for your grandchildren! Thanks for stopping by!
