The Mitten Commitment is a call-to-action for crafters all over the country. We're counting on you (and your crafting friends) to knit, crochet, or sew one pair of mittens to donate. They can be any size and can be as traditional or as creative as you want! Warm, wooly knitted mittens. Fleecy, fabulous hand-sewn mittens. Mittens with cables, mittens with embroidery, even mittens with faux-hawks!

Excellent Question! Mittens are easy projects to sew, crochet, or knit, and there are endless embellishment possibilities.

It's easy as 1-2-3:

1. Make a pair of mittens.
2. Send your mittens to:

OttLite / The Mitten Commitment
220 West 7th Avenue,
Tampa, FL 33602

3. Enjoy the warm feeling in your heart because you made a difference.

  Every year, millions of Americans face the cold winter weather without the proper warm clothing to protect them. With your help, we can make a difference in the lives some of these individuals by providing them with handmade mittens.  

And to help you get started, we've dedicated a page on our blog to feature free patterns and inspiring ideas from other crafters, including celebrity designers Suede and The Crochet Dude! You'll be able to stay up-to-date on our progress, see mittens from other crafters and share inspiring stories about your own Mitten Commitment. Did your sewing circle all make mittens? We wanna know! Got a question about a tricky stitch? Your fellow crafters can help!
