Crochet Fingerless Gloves In Plain Colours

Made By Me

I recently wrote a post about the lovely pattern I bought from Pauline Fitzpatrick for Ladies Crochet Fingerless Gloves, which I had made in the wool recommended, which was West Yorkshire Spinners Fusion.  Although I really liked this wool and the colours were gorgeous, I did find that I wasted a bit of the wool when I had to match up the colour for the second glove.  So I decided to make some in plain colours to see how they looked and I must say, I really like them!  Here are a few of the colours I made.

I did prefer making the plain coloured gloves as they were easier and quicker to do and there was no wastage of the yarn.  I made these gloves in Stylecraft Special Aran yarn, which is 100% acrylic. I love Stylecraft yarn, it is so soft, lovely to work with and there are so many colours to choose from!  I also think that the cable pattern on the back of the gloves shows up better on the plain colours.

I am thinking of making some of these gloves in tweedy colours, which I think will look good and I’m also on the lookout for some variegated yarn with a short colour change, which I’m hoping will be easier to match up and there will be less yarn wastage.

I would be interested to hear what you think of these gloves and which colours you prefer.  My next blog post will be about the beautiful Cowls I am currently making, in the softest, most luxurious wool I have recently bought! I will also be adding a link to the free pattern I found for it.
