Fingerless Crochet Gloves
September is a month where the air gets a little nippy, but you don’t want to dig out winter proof gloves yet. Fingerless crochet mittens are the ideal outdoor accessory for nice fall days and are nice to wear when riding the bike. My yarn boxes are filled with all kinds of yarn and a project like this is a perfect stash buster :-) I chose some fiber types, that are both warm and nice to have next to the skin.
Pattern Astra Gloves by Jana Whittle found in the book Crochet one Skein Wonders: 101 Projects from Crocheters around the World. I chose the smallest pattern, since my hands are very small and mittens tend to stretch over time. I also crocheted the thumb and body shorter to fit my hand size. The pattern was easy to follow especially with the provided charts for the stitch pattern.
Yarn One skein Rowan Kid Classic in white #828 feather, 70% wool, 22% mohair, 8% nylon, 50 g/140 m – 1.76 ounces/153 yards. One skein Malabrigo Silky Merino in #37 lettuce, 51% silk, 49% merino wool, 50 g/137 m – 1,76 ounces/150 yards.
Hook 3 mm US: 2/C
Level Easy for beginner crocheter
The mittens fit perfectly for my handsize and the wool feels very comfy near the skin. Thumbs up for this pattern :-)) It is a good idea to crochet fingerless mittens very tight, since they will stretch over time with wear and tear.
