The crochet Scato Mittens is truly one of the best crochet Christmas gift ideas! It’s a quick crochet project & works up beautifully.
You’re definitely going to keep yourself warm wearing these mittens during fall & winter.
These mittens are made with a 100 % wool yarn, but you could substitute with almost any super bulky yarn & they will look just as good.
Want them in just 1 color? No problem at all or maybe change the wrist band to the second color as well. Be creative!

To crochet these mittens I used a yarn called Naturgarn from Filcolana. It’s a 100 % wool yarn & it’s super soft.
The yarn comes in many beautiful colors, but you could easily substitute for any super bulky yarns. Maybe you already have something perfect for this in your stash?
If substituting, note that this super bulky yarn is on the thinner side.
THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT CROCHET PROJECT
This crochet pattern is definitely a perfect pattern as a Christmas Gift idea. Why? It’s a quick crochet project, but the end result still looks amazing.
Next, it doesn’t require a lot of yarn. Which helps to keep the cost down.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?
How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?
Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.
It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.
All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.
