Hands up!

Today I crocheted these fingerless gloves
I love this wool! I saw a lady buying it at my local wool shop and I just had to buy it too!
I have tried to make these before, but they came out way too large. This time I started out with a smaller chain, knowing that the wool would stretch.

They were simply made up by crocheting in the round - 1st row SC, then DC for 13 rows - leaving a chained gap for the thumb.
Simple, quick and effective. Plus each glove is unique thanks to the make up of the wool.
Plus they're ideal for cold days watching football

  1. These turned out so cute. Looks like they wouldn't be too difficult to make either. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I would love to make these:) Where did you get the pattern? Even my Hubby would wear them (in the right color, lol) for our rides on the Four Wheelers.

  14. Love this! I wish I had more time to knit (I haven't crotched in a LONG time). Hopefully I'll have more time to pick it back up soon, because I sure could use some of these :D
