These One Skein Lace Mitts are a must-do winter accessory. Your hands will be kept warm while your fingers are kept free for driving, holding a cup of coffee, and using your cell phone. (Maybe not all at the same time, though.) All you need is one skein of fine weight yarn in any color to complete this free crochet pattern. Instructions include directions for three different sizes small, medium, and large.

Looking through the pattern.... not sure what is meant by Fsc? The sc is single crochet I presume, but what is Fsc? It might be helpful to have the stitches used in the pattern listed at the top of the page for us beginners who need a little help in pattern reading. Thank you! )

Fsc is foundation single crochet. You can find a tutorial on youtube on how to.

What is a cluster mean in this pattern ( cluster ch 3 cluster) please help

It's not very clear is it? I think the cluster is (dc, ch2, dc), so for (cluster ch 3 cluster) you would (dc ch2 dc, ch3, dc ch2 dc).

I looked on Youtube and put in "how to crochet a cluster stitch", and it was most helpful.

do not like being sent to another link, forget it!

I've been crocheting for over 40 years and this is the most complicated fingerless mittens I've ever come across! The "easy" rating is wrong, and how do they keep you warm with the "lace"? All the pop-up ads make the site sloppy and a hassle to try to find what you're looking for.

How do I get the free pattern! This is frustrating with all of these ads.

Click on "Click here for crochet pattern" on this page. It will take you to the website FaveCrafts. On that page click on the big red button GET MY FREE EBOOK. The name of the ebook is ""The Ultimate Craft Guide: 25 Free Craft Projects for Every Crafter" The gloves are the very first pattern in the book.

I get caught I a loop and I cannot print the pattern!!

If you want this pattern you have to click where it says 'click here for crochet pattern', once there go to the link under the book & click it. After you download the book, the pattern is on page 5, it's the 1st pattern in the book, it's called 'chunky v's lace mitts' in the book. Hope this helps.

It goes to favecrafts instead of giving you directions. The free ebook doesn't have this pattern, it has something similar. I took someone else's advice and went to and clicked through the lacy fingerless gloves options to find it.

You can find the pattern on crochetpatterncentral. It is a red heart pattern.

I figured it out...hope this helps some others....Click on "Click here for free pattern"- above, in the next window, select Crochet (on the left of the screen). Then click on "Crochet Hats, Scarves & Gloves, again on the left side. The pattern you are looking for, for these gloves is the first one..."16 Free Crochet Hat Patterns, Scarves & Gloves". Click on this e-book to download it. Hope this helps!

I clicked on the link above, get the pattern, then on the left side, chose Crochet. But from there was lost, as there were more than one e-book to choose from and download. I did successfully down load one, however it did not have the pattern for these gloves.

Hi, after you click 'get this pattern' & the next page shows up try clicking under the book on right side. It should ask if you want to download the pdf file. If that doesn't work let me know & I will try to copy & paste the pattern for you.

not happy tried everything to ge this pattern. no luck....

To those wondering about "Click here for crochet pattern" link above - Pattern for One Skein Lace Mitts can only be found in the free eBook. Click on the link above and then download the free eBook on the page to find the pattern. Thanks!

The pattern in in the guide, but the guide won't open so it can be downloaded.

The "click here" link is for The-Ultimate-Craft-Guide-Free-Craft-Projects-Every-Crafter-free-ebook. Cannot find the pattern.

I cannot get pattern instructions at all for these pretty mitts

Why can't I print out the pattern for the One Skein Lace Mitts?

Super cute!! I love the cuffs with the pattern!! Stephanie w/The Hook Up

Can't wait to try this!

Such a good Idea and love the colours

GREAT HAND WARMERS. Wonderful idea doe the on the go bloggers and ipad users.

When you click on the "click here for crochet pattern" it takes you to the free ebook. The pattern is in the ebook. Just download it. You may need to get the free adobe reader first if you don't already have it.

Thanks, A lot of unnecessary searching.

Can't get pattern. where it says to click for pattern, goes to other place. not happy.

Thank you anitafishburn 1517527 :o)

click on the free button at top of page...or click on the photo. and it will take you to the ebook.

I can't find it either! :o(

Something doesn't seem to be working right for me. I can't find the pattern, no matter what I click on.

I'm having troubles finding the pattern too.

Same here. I can't find pattern no matter what I do.

click on the mitts and the pattern comes up.

I Love to crochet!! I'm left-handed & my grandma taught me at a young age. I love to make afghans, stuffed animals, scarves etc. It's my favorite past-time. And the gifts I've made & given to others mean a lot to me. Thank you so much for All the free patterns I can get thru AllFreeCrochet!! I really enjoy & appreciate it!!! Bonita
