I am loving all these free patterns for mittens that I am finding. I recently pulled a muscle in my lower back and am a little immobile for a week. I am taking this opportunity to work on my handmade Christmas gifts. This is an awesome pair of mittens and might make the cut for my list.

It's nowhere close to winter, but I really love this idea for the colder months! I'm the kind of gal who needs gloves or else she'll freeze to death. So, I'm definitely going to try these gloves when I have the chance!

So the link you provide to get the free pattern is actually a link to a blog article that tells us she made these mittens but the pattern is not hers. She got the pattern from someone else who actually designed the pattern. She does include the link to the original designers pattern page which is on Ravelry.

These frozen mittens are adorable. I love the fair isle pattern on them. And I love Bernat softee baby yarn. It is pretty easy for me to find locally and it is really soft. However, I still think if you could find a turquoiseish color that looks like Elsa's and could meet gauge, I would do these in that color for a Frozen fan. Otherwise, I still think they are cute the way they are.

These mittens are made with Bernat Softee Baby Yarn and size 1 needles, which as others noted below is a little challenging for doing stranded or Fair Isle knitting in mittens. The link provided takes you to the designer's instructions for her snowflake design variation but the actual mitten pattern is at another link.

These are so pretty and tempting, but I'm not sure I could work with such small needles anymore. I would like to try out the techniques mentioned, so maybe I will be brave. -)

They are really pretty. I am not sure I'm up to carrying all those stitches for the pattern in such a small space and with such small needles, though. I think I would try to make it with duplicate stitch for all of it and not just the upper snowflake as she mentions.

These are so cute! I think these will make perfect stocking stuffers.
