fingerless gloves...

almost finished with these. They were fast and easy. It's mostly knit and the edges are crocheted. I wanted to use some of my colorful beads but the yarn wouldn't pass through the small holes.

just a little slot on the side for my thumb

love having the use of my fingers when wearing gloves

If you would like the pattern it's here. Scroll down to pattern #222. I think it calls for a sport yarn but I used a worsted weight. You might have to sign up to enter the site, but it's free and there are lots of nice patterns. It's the 'Knit and Crochet Now' site. They also have a tv show where they demonstrate different  patterns and stitches each week.

Your gloves are beautiful, Deanna. Thanks for the link. I have been wearing my gloves all week and realized that perhaps I need a couple more pairs. It is nice to have the fingers free, but still keeping the hands warm.

I love the addition of beads, what a good idea.

These are great! I wore fingerless gloves on my commute so I could eat breakfast in the car!!!

I like the kind with the flip over flap for the fingers. I've made them for the grandkids but not for me yet!

It's amazing, the difference that warm wrists make, isn't it!

Deanna, Next time you have some beads that don't want to fit over the yarn. buy some "bridge cleaners" from the dental section (they look like tiny blue soap bubble toy shape)you loop the yarn in the hole and then pass the blue thing thru the bead and the yarn gets threaded. Been using them for years for all kinds of fibers. Ifr you can't find them, let me know and i can send you some. rzhs@intouchmi.com
