Possibly the weather may be a little dark and dreary during the cold months, but the Unicorn Crochet Mitten Pattern will brighten up your life for sure.
Warm hands with a ray of the rainbow, does it get any better? This is my third mitten pattern and I just might be addicted to crochet colorwork and Fair Isle.
The single crochet stitches for these mittens are worked in the center 'V' of each stitch, which results in the split single crochet (ssc) or waistcoat stitch. It helps the colorwork in crochet line up a little bit better.
The Unicorn Crochet Mittens are worked in the round continuously to avoid an unsightly seam. There is a video tutorial on a similar mitten to help guide you through the main parts of the construction. Check out the Squirrel Crochet Mittens and the Deer Crochet Mittens.

The Crochet Hook
I really enjoyed using this one for the smaller colorwork stitches. The thing to remember about hooks is that they are never one size fits all, or one type fits every project. For colorwork with fingering weight yarn, this has become my favorite.
The yarn is the most important part to the look of these mittens. The WeCrochet Chroma Fingering yarn has some excellent colorways. I think I found the perfect combination for these mittens, but I could also see them in other colorways as well. Or if you wanted solid colors contrasting colors there will still be a dramatic pop.
