Squirrel Mitten Fair Isle Crochet Pattern

Hello, beautiful fair isle crochet mittens! And I am saying hello loudly because the Squirrel Mittens Crochet Pattern has been a goal of mine for a long time. A few years ago I really wanted to create the Scandinavian style mitten we so often see in knit but in crochet.

So I tried, and I failed—the classic story of a designer. Not everything we do is a win, and my 'time-out' pile of projects is not small. When I was organizing yarn this year, I came across the discarded mitten project. The abandoned project didn't make me sad; it made me determined. While I felt the concept seemed so simple to do in crochet, I wondered why my attempt had failed.

So much time had passed I couldn't remember if it was the sizing or the pattern I didn't like. And I couldn't even find the original notes or charts. But it did give me the motivation to start over, scrap the past, and have another go. And I'm really glad I did! I love the way the mittens turned out and I have already started designing another mitten colorwork project. It's very addicting to watch these mittens work up.
