Crocheted Mittens For Adults Medium Size - Free Pattern

These Mittens are medium size
I never crocheted mittens. These were my first and I think they came out pretty great. These are really quite easy - I used only chain, single crochet stitch, sc decrease and slip stitch to make these. All crocheted in the round.
Those red thumbs are quite something - I keep looking at them... and don't forget - "keep your fingers busy to keep many fingers warm" :-)
