Fingerless Gloves to Knit and Crochet

Crochet Fingerless Mitts

Now that the cold weather has hit, there’s no better project to knit or crochet than a cozy pair of fingerless gloves or mittens.  These cute mitts not only keep your hands warm, but they are also a great accessory to any outfit.

I don’t know about you, but my hands are always freezing during the winter.  Wearing something on my hands that lets me keep warm, but still lets me work with my hands is just what I need on a cold day.  Here are a few of my favorite patterns.
