Matching Fingerless Gloves

In a deviation from January’s theme (though I imagine it’s also cold in France!)…

There just so happened to be some leftover yarn as I finished my mother & daughter earwarmers the other day and my fingers just so happened to be a wee bit chilly…so I whipped up a pair of these easy fingerless gloves!  Having matched sets makes me giddy. Would you like to make your own?  They’re extremely easy and a very beginner friendly pattern.  You can find it here on the Lion Brand Yarn website for free (though you do have to register with their site to view patterns).  I used a somewhat bigger hook (a 5.5mm) than the pattern called for. To add the embellishments at the top I slip stitched (loosely!) around the glove between the rows of single crochets.  The red is just a simple running stitch.

I think these took me under an hour to create and my paws have been so very thankful to have them.  Have I mentioned that it’s kind of nippy here in Europe? Brrrrrr.

  2. I am knitting some fingerless mitts for my kids this week! I am knitting them extra long so that they stay in their coats when their mittens seem to come out from the coat sleeves. These are really cute!
