Easy to Knit Winter Knit Gauntlets Knitted Pattern
I've always called them fingerless gloves. My mother bought me a pair back when I was 13-years-old and I wore them all the time. I wore them over regular gloves when walking to school and I wore them just so when I needed use of my fingers but still needed to keep my hands warm while working on the farm. Now that I am older, the cold bothers my hands more and more. I wear my handmade gauntlets indoors and outdoors, and I try to make a pair for just about every season and outfit.
