As the cold weather comes, hands can get pretty cold even when you are warm at home.
Staying in front of the computer for a long time is one of the activities that make hands colder, especially the one that you use the mouse with...I am sure this happened to all of you! Plus if your hands are cold most of the time no matter what (like mine!), you are reading the perfect Instructable for you! :D

This gave me the idea to crochet this mouse mitten and although it had been on my mind for a while, I didn't make it.
Now the cold is coming and my hands are getting cold again so I thought it was about time to try and make a mitten for my mouse! 

I've seen some mouse warmer pads online and they inspired me to make this mitten. 
I know mine is not nearly as good as those ones, and it's quite different too, but believe me, it still keeps you warm! :D
Other than being perfect for this time of the year, I am sure this will be a great Christmas gift for someone you know!

I hope you enjoy this Instructable, and If you do, I would really appreciate your vote. Thank you! :)

Step 1: What you need

The pattern I made for this mouse mitten is very simple and can be adapted to any kind of cotton/wool or size you want.
Here is what I used:
  • white wool
  • crochet hook n° 8 - 5mm
  • *pink cotton n° 5
  • crochet hook 2.5 mm
  • 2 black buttons
  • needle and thread
  • pieces of velcro
  • double sided tape
  • tape measure
  • your computer mouse, of course!
*You are probably wondering why I used thin cotton with thicker wool. The reason is very simple: I didn't have pink wool at home :D But I was still able to make it work so don't worry if, like me, you don't have something...there is always a way to do everything!
This is the same reason why I used a bigger crochet hook than the one needed for the wool I used...that was the only big one I had. Oh well, I will get more soon anyway! :)

List of stitches:
  • chain stitch
  • slip stitch
  • single crochet - sc
