Bella wears them in the Twilight movie and that’s all anybody needed to know.
Fingerless mittens are IN.
They are warm, versatile and look so cute peeking out from the sleeve of a jacket or sweater. And they leave your fingers free. I tried to crochet my own pair and they came out two different sizes but they still work for me.
I wouldn’t gift them in their crooked state. If I were giving them as a present, I would look on Etsy.com. They have a huge selection of fingerless gloves and mittens. Try this search link for the latest.
Or if you’re feeling adventurous, look on Ravelry.com for free knit and crochet patterns.
Some have finger holes, some only have a hole for the thumb, some just cover the wrist. All are adorable.
