Tis the season! That is, the time of year when it's too warm for winter sweaters but too cold for spring dresses. What's a girl to do when she still wants to wear her art out? Crochet these lightweight fingerless mitts for Easter dresses, tea parties, Sunday school, or early morning waiting at school bus stops. The pattern is free!
Designed by April Garwood for small sizes, the gloves feature Kreinik's soft Ombre metallic yarn. This thread is so soft you won't even notice it by feel. But the variegated color adds light and shine for eye-catching prettiness. It's the perfect add-in fiber for any project needing a special touch. April chose Kreinik's Misty Violet color, which features shades of silver, lilac, lavender, and purple.
April has many more crochet patterns you'll love. Look for her on Ravelry, Etsy, Facebook, the Banana Moon Studio blog, or the Kreinik website (link to her Spring Frost Crocheted Scarf is below). Her background is impressive: a degree in microbiology from the University of Oklahoma. Her "foreground" is universal: "I have yarn in my hands as often as possible." Many patterns are ideal for busy moms who want to make things that are fashionable, creatively fulfilling, and suitable for adults or children. Thank you, April, for sharing this free pattern with crocheters!
