Fun Fingerless Gloves to Knit

Fingerless gloves are a Winter wardrobe staple for me. I like the warmth they provide my hands, and the freedom the open ends afford my fingers. The lack of thumbhole with this pair is by design, as it allows the wearer some flexibility: keep them down low over your fingers for added warmth, and push them back towards your wrist when you need to use your fingers.

Bold stripes add a bit of playfulness, peeking out from under a neutral Winter coat. Or, make them in more subtle colors for a classy look.
