I have become a bit of a fingerless gloves pattern connoiseur. I made my first pair of fingerless gloves about 10 years ago. I rarely used quality yarn at the time. I tended toward middle end acrylics...think Michael's and Wal-Mart. Then, I had this friend who wanted to learn to knit Fetching fingerless gloves by Cheryl Niamath, and she had found these lovely skeins of yarn online for $18. I almost choked, but...I splurged, for my friend's sake.
Thus began my affection for fine things - especially fine yarn. I still only splurge on fine yarns occasionally. (I have a mountain of second-hand acrylics I use to make blankets and items for donation...projects I work just to keep my fingers moving.) When I do splurge on a high end skein, I love to make fingerless gloves. They feel so nice on my hands on a spring or fall evening. They keep me warm and keep my fingers free, so I can continue knitting...or typing. And above all, I love to give them as fine gifts to my precious friends.
Here is a collection of the favorite fingerless gloves patterns on my to-do list. Enjoy!

I was shocked when this fingerless gloves image came across my Pinterest feed. The diagonal rib is a delightful play on the eyes. Ravelry reviewers give fingerless gloves pattern, Straightforward Mitts , by Mone Dräger a high 4.5 star rating and a low difficulty score. Tracybug offers a sweet image of the diagonals.
