The Thermal Fingerless gloves are an easy crochet pattern! They are worked using a single crochet thermal stitch making them extra thick and warm.
All of this without the bulk! That is the wonderful thing about the thermal stitch – as the stitch is quite dense (but don’t be fooled, it still has stretch!), you can work a warmer project without having the bulk of a highly textured stitch.

The Thermal Fingerless Gloves pattern is written in three adult sizes (small, medium and large). I have not added any embellishments to the gloves, but feel free to experiment with buttons or tags! I can’t wait to see your finished gloves!
