Lemon Peel Fingerless Gloves Crochet Pattern
It can be a challenge to stay warm in the winter, especially when gloves make it hard to use our phones and function. That’s why I love crochet fingerless gloves. They’re what people used before texting gloves, and they’re just as good. This particular pair uses the lemon peel stitch.
They have a little hole for your thumbs and a ribbed cuff around the bottom. Made as a rectangle and folded and seamed together, these gloves are incredibly easy to crochet. If you enjoy crocheting simple shapes like rectangles, you may want to check out our Crochet Anything with Rectangles class where you'll take the basic shape you already have down pat and turn it into useful, practical, and beautifully professional projects.
These crochet gloves are super convenient and comfy for driving or running errands. And you can text while wearing these unlike with a pair of mittens.
This pair is made out of cascade 220 superwash merino. It’s a100% washable wool for easy care and warmth this winter.
Everyone can always use some warm winter gloves and these are a stitch to make.
