Knitted Striped Fingerless Gloves

I always loved fingerless gloves. They are great for keeping hands somewhat warm, yet anyone wearing them can perform tasks, like pumping and paying at a gas station, using a key to unlock doors without taking them off. Or if you would keep your temperature inside the house or apartment low, you can still use your computer without having your hands cold.

In my lifetime I made several of these gloves, but this is the first time of publishing them. These gloves fit an adult woman and as you see I made them a bit different different color scheme), yet the same - just for fun.
