Hand warmers have been these packets (mostly disposable); usually taken only to keep the hands warm during winters. But as their utility increased so did the nomenclature. They got new avatars like an arm warmer, wrist warmer, gloves, mittens, and fingerless gloves.
The issue with gloves is that they cover the palm including the fingers; so you either work or keep hands warm. But voila! a pair of fingerless gloves covers only the palm area, keeping the fingers free to work. Though it found its popularity among the bikers to protect the hand from continuous handle grip; and weight lifters to offer the right grip, it has become a common winter accessory now.
A customer was looking for a pair of fingerless gloves for regular use. I must say, it was my first attempt to make a hand accessory.
I liked the simple pattern given in Adelines Fingerless Mitts. I kept the length of the gloves to cover the palm and wrist only. The pattern is very simple and well explained.
- Length of the hand warmers: 6″
- Circumference: 3″
- You can add pompom, tassels, ribbons etc at wrist edge for the warmer. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
- Increase the length of the warmer to make hand and arm warmer.
- You can add a fur edging or work a crab stitch edging on both sides.
- You can work with 2-3 different colour yarns to give an assorted look.
Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
