For anyone who is making their holiday crafts by hand, this may ring a bell*….
(by Franklin Habit)
If the above doesn’t scare you off, I have a nice and easy pattern for fingerless gloves in Craft Hope. As someone who has given these as gifts, I can tell you that they have always been well received, usually either sparking a request for the pattern or a friend to say, “Oooh! Make me some!” I’ve been wearing those exact gloves in the photo below and can tell you that they are handy and keep your fingers from getting cold while both typing and walking around the city.
Pattern (PDF) here.
(Thanks to the book’s publisher, Lark, for the PDF and Crescendoh, Mayamade and Whipup for sharing the pattern, too!)
