Ideal for walking the dog in the woods or tokeep your hands warm on days out as the weather turns colder, these quick andeasy fingerless mitts are a variation of double crochet, which is good forbeginners and more experienced crocheters alike. The larger size can be worn onsmaller hands as oversized fingerless mitts, with soft smooshy fabric, or thesmaller size can be worn as well-fitting, cosy, warm fingerless mitts. They areeasily customisable, by adding ruffles top and bottom, or adding in stripes atany point on the hand.
