Pattern round up: fingerless gloves
I love fingerless gloves. They stash well in the coat pockets, they keep me warm but I still get to feel what is at the bottom of my bag when trying to fish my keys out or send a text. My favourite yarn to use is 4 ply (sock yarn). It's the perfect project to make the most of your stash and even use the left overs from other projects.
There are so many patterns out there! Today, I am sharing my favourite ones with you, a mix of free and paid designs.
