Easy Fingerless Gloves Pattern

fingerless gloves

These Fingerless gloves make a great gift. They keep your hands warm while you are texting or typing. The pattern is easy to follow with lots of photos to make it perfect for beginners. The pattern comes in two sizes, small and medium, allowing it to fit most women and men. Our pattern testers found that the small pattern fits from petite to large; the medium fits from XL to 2XL in women’s sizes.easy fingerless gloves pattern

I used the James C Brett Yarn, “Marble Chunky,” to create the fingerless gloves shown on this page. The yarn is color-changing, making it look striped in the finished gloves. You will simply love the look without all the tedious work of changing colors and weaving in ends.

(There are affiliate links in this post and I receive a small percentage of any purchase that you make.)

The chunky yarn crochets up quickly. You can personalize these gloves in any color you choose, whether it’s your favorite color or the color of your coat. Below are just a few of the colors this yarn comes in. I had so much fun creating this pattern for you!

What I’ve Been Up To

This past week has been spent writing up patterns; I’m working hard on preparing for the holiday season. The more work I get done now, the less I have to do then. The weather here has been crisp and beautiful. The yard is being mowed as I type, for the last time this season, I think. It will be nice to put the mower away and focus on other things.

I decorated a little bit for the season with some pumpkins, but I need to add some flowers for color. It is time to put some pansies and mums into the front flower beds. All I need to do is get out there and dig some holes.

I also had a chance recently to re-pot my succulents into a more permanent container. They have been hanging out in plastic containers all summer. (I am notorious for killing plants!) I was trying to see if they would live long enough to warrant a pretty pot. They have; I think I like them. It will be good to have some houseplants that don’t die if I don’t water them all the time. Even the Aloe Vera plant is still alive after about six months in my home! Maybe there’s hope for my green thumb yet– and for the succulents this winter!

Talk to you later,

Karen

Scalloped Afghan Pattern

Crocheted Scalloped Afghan

The beautiful Scalloped Afghan pattern is available in both the Etsy and Craftsy shops today. It is such a beautiful work of art that I know you will want to get started making your own right away.

The yarn for this scalloped afghan is simply dreamy. You can choose any of the long color-changing yarns when you make this blanket. It works up into the beautiful long stripes you see below. The tweedy-looking yarn in the photos is masculine and stylish all at the same time. The yarn is bulky (#5) and crochets up extremely quick.
