Last week, I shared a crochet pattern for Kid’s Fingerless Gloves. They are cute, comfy, warm, and allow the finger freedom that mittens and traditional gloves do not. I mentioned a little something about increasing the rounds to make the fingerless gloves a little longer on the wrists. Today’s crochet pattern sports a longer wrist that allows these crochet fingerless gloves to easily be tucked up under jacket sleeves, for added warmth, while still keeping little fingers free to make play easier.
Kid’s fingerless gloves are super stylish, and can be customized by using whatever color you like. You can embellish them to suit your kid’s desires by adding flowers or appliques.
The fingerless gloves are not too difficult to work up. Each glove is made all in one piece. You will start with the cuff, then move on to the wrist, form the hand and thumb, then finish just before the fingers.
