This is a free striped fingerless gloves crochet pattern with X’s with just basic crochet stitches. This is a great beginner pattern with a video tutorial.
We all have phones. So in the wintertime, it’s a challenge to stay warm but also use your phone when wearing gloves or mittens. That is why fingerless gloves are the perfect solution to keep your hands warm while messing with your phone or while working. It is the 20th free crochet pattern of the Advent Calendar Mystery Crochet Along.
This warm gift pattern is the 20th pattern (December 20th) of the 24 patterns. These fingerless gloves are warm, striped in red and white, and feature some X’s to style up the gloves to make them extra special. The pattern only uses basic crochet stitches and is much easier than you might think.
This pattern as all the patterns in this Advent Calendar Mystery Crochet Along comes with a video tutorial to guide you through the pattern. This pattern’s yarn is Vanna’s Choice and was provided by Lion Brand Yarns.
