Hello! It has been a while since my last pattern/tutorial, so I thought I’d get one of my favorite Fall accessories out to you! Don’t you just love Fall, the crunching of the leaves, wearing jeans and long sleeves and not sweating in the sun! Ahhhh, Autumn is definitely one of my favorite four seasons of the year. Fall has a particularly special place in my heart because it is the season you start seeing knit and crochet clothes again! Yay!
Today I want to share with you a new pattern for fingerless gloves. You may have seen this photo before, I’m pretty proud of these gloves and I have shown them off on the blog and on some of my other social media places. I don’t know about you, but I think fingerless gloves are so cool. They protect your hands from the elements all while freeing your fingers up to text, or take a photo, or drive without a slippery mitt on the steering wheel. Plus, I like to wear them indoors because my hands tend to get chilly. So without going into all the other reasons to like fingerless gloves, here is my pattern.
