It snowed! And due to the short holiday week, I had a weeee bit extra time for some crochet magic on our snowy evening. I was feeling the need for something especially simple. These will make such nice gifts.

So…
A free pattern today, just for you…fingerless gloves!

Super simple and such lovely stripes.
