Glovelets

19 Nov

It’s been a long time since I created one of my original knitting patterns, but this past week, I wanted to knit a pair of gloves without full fingers. There are many patterns for fingerless mitts around the Internet, but I wanted partial fingers for added warmth. Michigan winters are COLD, but I like my fingers on the steering wheel when I drive. Included here are full instructions. Happy knitting!

If you’re looking for something to keep your hands warm while typing, try my Snug-Fitting Fingerless Mitts pattern.
