Fingerless Gloves

Fingerless Gloves To celebrate the fall season, I've created these lovely fingerless gloves.  Made out of a cozy fleeze, these gloves offer added warmth for the cooler days but your fingers stay free for greater ease.  They also can be quite elegant with the addition of a contrasting lace and vintage buttons.

Like all my favorite projects: they're easy to make, it doesn't take a lot of fabric, and they also make great gifts.  Just realize, while this tutorial does offer a pattern, the size is for a small, but you can always scale up when you print it or make your own pattern based on your own measurements.  I go over in the tutorial how I created the pattern and it's quick and easy to do.

I decided to use fleece for this project, not only because it's warm and cozy, but also because one direction of the fabric stretches and you definitely need that stretch to fit it on your hand.  When you cut it out make sure to lay the pattern so it'll stretch around your hand, rather than stretching up and down the hand.

    I am excited to try to make these. Can I make them longer down the wrist? Would I just extend the line a few inches?

    I am going to make some of these gloves today. Thanks for the pattern. This is a great way to use up some smaller pieces of stretchy fabric and the embellishing options are endless.

    anti-pill is usually more expensive than regular fleece. When you wash regular fleece you’ll start to get little balls of fleece popping up on the surface which, I guess, are known as “pills” or pilling. You won’t get that with the anti-pill as it’s usually a better quality of fleece. Hope that helps!

    Is there a difference between “fleece” and “anti pill fleece”? I see Joann Fabrics has both and good old Wal Mart has only “anti pill”.

    Can we possibly get written instructions? It isn’t always possible to watch video and try to make at same time. Thank you.

    I love the gloves. Is it possible to get the directions in written form? Many people do not have the ability to do this type of a project easily because the directions are available only as a video. If it is already in written format could someone direct me to the location please?

    Finally something that fits me. The only place I wear a small is my hands and feet. LOL…
    Thanks for the pattern.
