The name of the pattern for these mittens is "Mrs. Murdock's Mittens."  The pattern is available in three sizes.  While I crocheted the adult women's size, there is also a free pattern for a toddler size and a young child size.

These gloves took me about 4 afternoons, that time is calculated for the pair.

My mom absolutely loved these mittens and she gets compliments on them all the time.  Even though they are a year old, the wool I used for them has come out great.  I used 100% merino wool in Navy by Valley Yarns and they feel absolutely luxurious.  If you are looking for some great scarfs to go with these mittens, check out my collection of 5 Free Crochet Scarf Patterns.
