As much as I try to deny it, the cooler weather is here and winter is on the way. I’ve been wanting to design a new pair of crochet fingerless gloves for a while now, so I guess there’s no better time.
Fingerless gloves are my go-to these days as I find I’m constantly needing my phone to check email, respond to texts and deal with business matters. These gloves help to keep a large portion of your hand warm while giving your fingers a little more freedom.
Keep your hands cozy on a chilly day with these gloves. I’m calling this the “Elizabeth” fingerless glove pattern as this crochet pattern uses the Elizabeth stitch. You may remember that I created a stitch tutorial a couple of weeks ago showing you how to create this beautiful stitch – see the tutorial here.
