To get myself posting on a more regular basis, I thought I'd start sharing a free crochet pattern every week, so today is the debut posting of FPF - Free Pattern Friday. Sometimes they'll be patterns of my own (like today), sometimes they'll be patterns I've found online that have quickly become favorites, and of course there will be those that I fell in love with but can only dream about because they're way out of my comfort zone.
Today's free crochet pattern is for a pair of fingerless gloves that I whipped up recently. I thought they'd make a great gift when paired with a hat and/or scarf (I'll share those patterns on future FPFs).
Who needs fingerless gloves? They're popular among the younger crowd as they can have a goth or steampunk look to them. Think high school band members; wrists and hands will be warm while fingers are free to play instruments. Wrist warmers in school colors would likely be a hit.
Isn't everyone into texting these days? Fingerless gloves are perfect for those who update their Twitter or Facebook status while on the go.
Some also call them gauntlets or wrist warmers, but whatever name you want to put on them, they're a welcome wardrobe accessory in the cold winter months. Find my free pattern for fingerless gloves here.
P.S. I'll be cruising through free patterns from other bloggers, so keep an eye out for some link love!
