Ladies crochet fingerless gloves

                                         

                                          LADIES CROCHET FINGERLESS GLOVES








I love fingerless gloves, I always have. Chunky, Aran or DK it doesn't matter. Best thing about being able to knit and crochet is creating your own style of winter items. Matching sets of a hat and gloves or a hat and cowl from a 100g ball of yarn , nothing beats it!
I've come up with 2 patterns for fingerless gloves in aran weight and dk. I have to say the aran is my favourite, that bit warmer. It's worth using an extra soft yarn to give you more pleasure from yarn your latest creation.
Both patterns are very easy to follow and perfect for your first glove pattern.Showing 1 worked as a flat piece then seamed and the other is worked in the round. There is also an easy to follow sizing guide to show you how to create your own design using whichever stitch you prefer.
They are so quick to make up, I made 3 pairs in  one day !

Crochet Snoody


Ok so typically called a snood somehow I think SNOODY fits it better.
I've played around with the idea of making one for a while now so I've tried it out on a child's size approx 5-7 yrs.
I love the feel of the King Cole Comfort Chunky and am finding it very hard to move away from it at the moment , must be with winter approaching that has me drawn to this yarn. Its super soft to touch which makes it perfect for snuggly winter wears.
Autumnal colours are catching my eye, greens, browns purples all the rustic shades I'm itching to get working with.
This SNOODY is super cosy and sooo warm.
