Aside from its outstanding appearance, this fingerless glove is perfect for people who are always on the go. You'd still be able to use all five fingers without freezing them off. The free pattern is below, or you can get the ad-free printable PDF pattern here.
There's nothing like a pair of fingerless gloves crochet 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.
