I made these gloves for typing after my knuckles got cold too many times. They were designed after a pair I found on Crochet Pattern Central called ‘Shell Lace Fingerless Gloves’. This is the first time I have ever made gloves or even two crocheted items that are identical! It’s an experience I will repeat sparingly.
