A perfect gift for the men in your life! This drink mitt is big enough for most men’s hands yet small enough for women too! Use it for your favorite glass bottled beverage, a travel coffee mug or even your favorite pint of ice cream. The Knot Knit Crochet Drink Mitt makes a perfect gift for most. You can find the drink mitt crochet pattern in this post below, or an ad-free print friendly version on Love Crafts here, Ravelry here, or on Etsy here.
I've used a bulky/5 weight yarn for this crochet drink mitt. I wanted to make sure that it was thick enough to keep my hand and the drink warm (or cool). The yarn I used for mine was Loops & Threads Charisma as it was what I had on hand at the time. There are many other bulky weight yarns that you can substitute.
