You may have heard me say it before but the one crochet item I wear the most is fingerless gloves!
I find crochet fingerless gloves very practical. They are great to wear while driving when its chilly out. They are great texting gloves as well.
How often do you crochet fingerless gloves? I find that I crochet a couple pairs a year. I think crochet fingerless gloves make for a great handmade gift as well.
This specific fingerless gloves pattern uses stitches that I have used before in several other patterns. I have decided to keep the name of all these patterns consistent. These gloves are called the Eternal Dawn Fingerless Gloves.
The other patterns that use these stitches are:
The stitches used are the half double crochet and the mini bean stitch. The half double crochet stitches will be worked in the third loop and some will be worked in the back loop only.
These are worked from the bottom up and in the round. They can be made in a solid yarn color or a second color can be added to the mini bean stitch rounds.
If you like these gloves then you may also like the Wintertime Fingerless Gloves pattern which uses a bulky weight yarn.
