Saponaria are pretty fingerless gloves with a flap to warm up your fingers. The thumb is left outside to play with your phone, but you can easily cover it.

They really are instant crochet gratification: I just needed one day and a half to finish them, including finishing, sewing buttons etc.

I named those mitts after a flower I really like, simple but beautiful, which used to grow at home when I was a child.

All the crochet stitches used in the pattern are explained, and I took a lot of pictures to help the construction to be understood.
This project is perfect for a beginner or for someone who just want to get quickly a nice pair of fingerless mitts.
