Scrappy Project #1-Girls Boho Fingerless Gloves

It is my goal this year to try to use up my scrap yarn, so I have been thinking of projects that will use up the scrap yarn I have hidden in different places around my office/crochet room. In my last post "A Yarn Resolution"  I talked about making a scarf with my scrap yarns, I am still plan on making that scarf,  but the scrappy scarf was postponed when my three year old granddaughter asked for a pair of  colorful fingerless gloves. (I can't say no to my grandkids who want something crocheted!)

I grabbed my scraps of Stylecraft Special DK yarn, my crochet tools and set out to make a pair of colorful seamless gloves.

Girls Boho Fingerless Gloves


The written pattern for these Girls Boho Fingerless gloves can be found here and below is a step-by-step tutorial with pictures to help you a long the way. 

Tutorial notes: 
See pattern for how to do special stitches
Make sure to weave in ends as you go
join yarn to a different stitch for each row, so you will not have any seams.

Join to beginning chain to form a circle, be careful not to twist




Ch 1, sc in each st around, join, fasten off










Change to the G/6 (4 mm) hook, join yarn to any st, hdc in the same st and in each st around, join, fasten off.









Repeat previous round for 10 more rounds, changing colors with each round. You should have a total of 11 rounds.
