Cute as a bear crochet mittens

Create this cute as a bear crochet mittens! So adorable and sure to bring even more cuteness to your little one! This is a simple pattern that works up quickly. The mittens are sized for a small child (3-5 years). You can easily make the mittens larger or smaller by changing your hook size or making the cuff larger/smaller then increasing or decreasing stitches on the first row. Pair this with my cute as a bear hat for a complete set! This pattern uses medium worsted weight yarn and size I crochet hook. The final mittens measure 3.5″ across and 7.5″ long.
