This free crochet pattern is called the Flying Hearts Gloves that are made with the Waistcoat stitch aka Knit stitch and looks like it was knitted. The gloves are made in 2 different colors.
It was a little over a year
I loved the idea and agreed. I came up with a few designs and then decided to create once that looked like hearts flying up or flames, all using the waistcoat stitch which is one of my favorite ones to create beautiful designs and create a thick texture also.
Once I received the yarn, which by the way is so beautiful and soft, I got right to it. I had to adjust my design only once to add some stitches around the palm of my hand, as the waistcoat stitch is known to not have a lot of give when it comes to stretching, especially when using 2 colors at the same time.
Once my Flying Hearts Knit-Like Gloves were finished, I submitted my pattern to them and they published it in their issue 67 in January of 2018. It was so exciting as that was my first time in a magazine. Furthermore, they published a picture of it on Instagram where the actual challenge took place. I was
We both used the same yarn and had the same assignment to make gloves or mittens. Ironically, she went with mittens and I went with gloves without knowing who the other designer was. After a week, the winner was determined. I WON! YAY! People loved my design. So, now, a year later, you get to enjoy this pattern free.

The Break-Through Moment: How to use the Knit-like Gloves?
When it comes to fashion, I might not be the right person to ask because I feel like I have a very relaxed fashion style. The majority of time I work on my blog from home. You know, pajamas and crochet and yarn – with some exercise and food in between.
But jokes aside, you can easily pair these gorgeous easy to make Knit-Like Gloves with anything you like. I prefer using them when I wear my grey or black winter jacket.
Usually, it does not really get very cold in southern California, but if we drive into the mountains I will always wear them. Due to the thickness of the waistcoat stitch the gloves will keep you warm and cozy.

See what Angela, from my crochet group, said: “…Just today alone, I was speaking to a friend and mentioned this group to her because she’s having a hard time emotionally. I told her she needed to join so she can learn some cool crochet techniques and keep herself busy. You’re my first “go-to” group. Not only do you have some amazing ideas… But it’s you as a person that I can relate to. You’re kind, generous, and probably take things to heart more than you should (I do that too lol)… But you’re awesome! …”
