If you’re a beginner in crochet, this is a great crochet project to get you moving. The gloves are done in half double crochet for elasticity and stretch in the body and the thumb hole is done with a single crochet to keep a tight shape. I don’t know about you, but my hands can get pretty cold in the Winter and in the air conditioning indoors in the summer. These lovely crochet fingerless gloves will take care of that chill in no time. They’ll make a great gift too! This pattern can also be downloaded at Ravelry.
