Ruby Red Fingerless Mittens

This image courtesy of charmedbyewe.com

Fingerless gloves are widely popular in the winter, especially in offices where the temperature is always set just a little too cold. With the Ruby Red Fingerless Mittens, you can take your fingerless mitts outside as well, since they feature a little flap that covers your fingers and provides extra warmth and coziness. When you aren't using them as mittens in the cold, keep them up in place with a little button. This is an easy pattern to work that features simple stitches. It comes in sizes toddler through large adult. 

Notes:
•Gloves are worked from fingers down; make the foundation chain loosely to allow for stretching
•Instructions are the same for the right and left hand; just mind where you place the mitten tops
•The body of the glove is worked in a spiral – use a stitch marker to keep track of rounds
•The mitten tops and thumbs are worked in joined rounds, the starting chain does not count as a stitch, make the first hdc in the same stitch as the starting chain, join in the first hdc of the round
•Height is measured from finger opening to arm cuff.

  2. Making the Button Loop: Create a loop by weaving the tail through the opposite side of Round 1 and knot in place. Weave in the end.

  3. Attaching the Mitten Top: Sew the mitten top along the back of the hand only, so it can be flipped on or off the fingers.

  4. Weave a bit of ribbon or contrasting yarn through the dc stitches along the cuff and tie in a secure bow. Sew on the buttons.

I really like this look of these Ruby Red Fingerless Mittens. I also appreciate that the written pattern is right here and that it shows how to do the mittens for all sizes, taking that guess work out of it. This pattern is well written and easy to follow, so it sounds like it should work out. Has anyone made theses yet? If so, how did they come out? I have a long list of crochet items to get done before Christmas, so these will have to wait until after the holidays to make. Thank you for this free crochet pattern.

I lost a pair of fingerless mittens which I loved. This pattern will be perfect to replace them. On a cold day in New York City, you need the warmness of mittens but hate to take one off to put that transit pass in that narrow slot. This way you fold down the end and your fingers are free to do just that. Perfect!

I love the vintage look of these gloves! The bow detail is really cute and the purple color is exactly what I would choose. Flip-top mittens like these are so practical.
