My aunt recently requested a pair of fingerless gloves to keep at her desk at the chilly office she works in. I'm sure some of you can relate. I came up with these and have since made another 4 pairs or so. These whip up super quickly. The pattern is simple, but they still have some style. I've been wearing a pair here and there (we've had a bizarre winter up here in the north country). I love that they are washable too! Without further ado, here's the new FREE pattern. Enjoy!
