Marley’s Mitts ( quick fingerless gloves )

One last before Christmas pattern for you all! Named after my daughter who quickly stole them as her “payment” for modeling them, these fingerless mittens work up so fast you still have the time to make a few for gifts. This pair was made in one evening!
As she says “oh my god mom, they are so soft!” as well as easy to make. They are faux cables! There’s no real cabling going on here, just a little crochet cheating!!

*Fold the glove in half in side out. Make sure when they are right side out, you have a thumb hole on the proper side for a right and left glove. The ridges should be on top for each glove when right side out.
*Starting from the bottom, sew the first 12 sts of each side together, skip 6 sts ( this is your thumb hole )sew the remaining 3 together.
*sc around the top and bottom edges to give it a more streamlined look.
*weave in all ends.

* Continue going back and forth up the right side. Counting 10 stitches between each join.
* When you reach the top, you will turn the chain and follow the same pattern going down the left side.
* Fasten off, weave in all ends.
Wrap them up and you have a quick and luxurious gift! Or you know, keep them for yourself. That was my intention….
