Fingerless Gloves

I have been wanted to make a pair for a while now. I just could not find the right pattern. Believe me, I found plenty ones that I would have loved to knit...but that is not gonna help me. Finally, I came upon a winter glove pattern on Bernat's website. As I was making the glove and tried it on as I crocheted....I thought they would look great....unfinished. I left off the rest of the glove and made fingerless glove. They came out perfect for what I wanted and they will also come in handy when I am driving and at my sons bus stop, sipping coffee.
I used the new Bernat Softee Chunky Twists. I loved it. It is 100% acrylic, but acrylic has it's place too. It is a bulky weight, so these gloves took no time to crochet up. I loved how the ribbing showsup on the cuff. Sorry about the unfocused picture, but didn't realize it until after I uploaded the photos.

Its a great pattern gina. Now if you added some filet crochet to the basic idea, or maybe some front post cables, and things...

I am leading you astray here, into new wonders!

I liked the yarn you chose. Bulky weight is always a surprising yarn to me. You finish stuff very fast with not many stitches.
