Trio of Fingerless Gloves

I found a new free pattern and have gone to town!  We knew we were going on a trip to see family, and I wanted to make something for my mom, sister and mother-in-law.  Even though they live in Texas and it is rarely cold, I can only make a few projects so far.  lol  So fingerless gloves it is!

I made a red pair to go with the red cowl I made last week and gave these to my MIL:

These are on backwards.....FYI.  lol

I decided to add a decorative edge on the other end.  I like it!

Here is the set - I had to use different yarn for the gloves as the cowl yarn was too bulky.



The gray ones were for my sister - this yarn is SO soft.  She is the one who pointed out the direction the gloves should be worn.  Thanks!  lol  (I pay SO much attention to pattern photos.  lol)



When I saw this yarn, I knew my mom would love it - lavender and turquoise.  I love how these turned out as well.  I made both of these in about 2 hours, AFTER I finally got the beginning ring figured out.  I discovered I can't carry on a conversation AND crochet.  Good to know!

Would you like to make a quick 10-Row fingerless glove?  The pattern calls for using different colors of yarn to make stripes, but I wasn't that brave.   It's FREE!


If you would like detailed information on the yarn and hooks I used, please visit my Ravelry page.

  2. I have RA- rheumatoid arthritis- and sometimes have to wear a brace. I'm always looking for a cute cover, and with a little size adjustment, these might just be the things. Thanks for sharing!
