There's nothing like a pair of fingerless gloves when you're feeling chilly but still need to send a quick text message. Mittens are such a pain for texting, but fingerless gloves solve that problem. That's why I love these Star Stitch Fingerless gloves. Not only are they fun to wear, but the star stitch is also fun to crochet as well!
If you enjoy working with a variety of crochet stitches, I highly recommend the Ultimate Crochet Stitch Library which includes 45 professionally filmed stitch tutorials. Now, onto the crochet pattern.
