Warm Handmade Crafts is the ticket when the winter woollies are looking desirable and the cold snaps become a little too frequent and "brrr" is the involuntary word of the day.

This is another in a series of little hand warmers for 2012. Even though winter has not officially arrived for us in the Land Downunder, it has already send envoys on unexpected days to remind us how "brr" it can get. The the "brr" is always a good incentive to get the mind and fingers onto making winter woolies.

I love fingerless gloves and mitts. In the cold, my fingers get really chilly and worse, they get stiff. That makes it virtually impossible or at best, very hard to bead tiny beads, to knit, crochet, sew, and even type smoothly on the keyboard. If you have never used a fingerless gloves but feel the chill in your hands, then this is a must for you. You will be amazed at how much warmer your hands become and as a consequence, your fingers can also function with nimble mobility again.

How to Make Crochet Finglerless Gloves?

I am just putting down some notes on the making of these lacy fingerless gloves. It will make more sense if you already know some basic crochetting.

The main stitch used throughout is "scallops" made of 5 chains. And then you build row by row with the same 5-chain stitch.

Here I wanted a pair of gloves that was a bit firmer at the base (around the wrist) and a little bit more snug and less prone to stretch over time. So I started with few rows of simple double crochet and worked a rectangular piece. The circumference should fit snugly around around the hand & wrists. The number of stitches are the same as for the body as I will be doing no increase along the length of the entire gloves.

The rectangular piece will form the "band" for the wrist and will later be "closable" with a button. The rest of the gloves is worked in the round, in the 5-chain stitch to produce the lacy scallop look.

I used Cascase, 100% Peruvian Highland Wool for this pair of fingerless hand warmers. I made a black crochet flower for each side, accented with a textured button. This is to be sewn on during fitting to ensure that the flower looks centered.

Select closure buttons. Make fitting look on the band of gloves. Then firm the look with a row of double crochet.

The flower is optional. It can be placed on the band or near the fingers. Each will produce a slightly different look, depending on personal preference.

The Red Black contrast is dramatic, bold, and visually warming.
