The fingerless mitts are such a doddle to make and take hardly any time at all. They are worked flat in rows and then joined at the side, just leaving a few stitches for the thumbhole and there you have it! The top section has a super easy cable stitch that you’ll master in no time. The mitts will fit an average adult hand but you can just add or subtract a few stitches to the cuff and a couple more rows to make them bigger or smaller to suit you. If you ever need any help with sizing then please just let me know and I’d be more than happy to help you out.

"When the weather starts to turn cold, it is time to whip up some warm accessories. We start noticing cold fingers, but we still need those hands to fuss with our phone. This is the perfect time to make a few stylish crochet fingerless mitts to keep our hands warm. Crochet fingerless mitts not only make a wonderful quick project, but can make a great last minute gift. You can even make it even more special by making the whole set! I have made a pair of matching boot cuffs to go with these fingerless mitts. My friend Donna from Naztazia even made the matching Winter Park Scarf (coming soon) with the same stitch pattern. Make all three pieces to look coordinated and stylish. Plus all the patterns have video tutorials!"
Of course, Dragon Scale Fingerless Mitts are always season, and are loved not only by the fans of fantasy. While they make use of the unusual crocodile stitch, they aren’t hard. Consequently they have an awesome scale-like three dimensional pattern that interplays super well with the right choice of colors. Moreover, this technique may come in handy in other projects, so it’s good to learn and practice it.

These beautiful, lacy fingerless gloves are a project works up in an hour or two. They also match my Primrose and Proper Slouch hat, and either the Primrose and Proper Super Scarf, or the Primrose and Proper Cowl, so you can make a complete set for a special person, or charity. This pattern is worked sideways to begin, then you will fold the resulting rectangle in half, put the edging on both ends, and then sew up the sides leaving room for the thumb hole. It’s pretty easy, and once you make the first glove the second should go very quickly.
