Lovely In White!

Lovely in White!

My new fingerless mittens!

I whipped up this pair of fingerless mittens in two nights.   They aren't perfect...but I love them.  I wore them all the way to Ohio and back for Christmas.  

The yarn in white is Loops & Threads Silky Soft Worsted 100% acrylic and is so soft.   I used a G hook.  

The free pattern is Gigi's Fingerless Mittens - Crochet Pattern (here).   I liked her ribbed cuff in front post double crochet (fpdc) stitch.  The body is half double crochet (hdc) stitch.   (US crochet terms)      

I will be making more of these!!!  

Thanks Gigi!

  1. Oh these are wonderful and they really look so soft and comfy too I bet you love wearing them.

  2. As a person who lives in a hot place I don't have any experience of mittens ...but I don't understand. Don't your fingers get cold? You'll have to educate me Sandy.

  3. So beautiful! It's look warm and soft, I love the shell edging too!

  4. Gorgeous Sandy! I just saw a pattern in the new Crochet! Magazine for shorter mitts like these, I may make a pair now after seeing yours. Great job! The white is lovely!

  5. Sandy, they are so pretty! I love white accessories in winter. I wish I could crochet!
