Lemon Peel Fingerless Gloves Crochet Pattern
It’s winter and you know what that means. Cold hands and feet.
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 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. They’re super comfy for driving or running errands. And you can text unlike with a pair of mittens.
This pair is made out of cascade 220 superwash merino. It’s a 100% washable wool for easy care and warmth this winter. I recommend getting the crochet kit, which has 1 skein in a rich navy blue shade. And it comes with the digital pdf pattern. Everything you need to make yourself a pair of gloves.
And if you’re all set glove wise, consider making a pair for a friend. Everyone can always use some warm winter gloves and these are a stitch to make.
