Basket Weave Fingerless Gloves

Fingerless gloves are really popular right now.  I made a pair for my daughter for Christmas a year ago.  My other daughter also wanted me to knit her a pair, and I finally did.   They would not be warm enough in this bitter cold weather we are having, but I noticed my daughter layered them over another pair of gloves for warmth.  There is a basket weave pattern in these.




The pattern for these basket weave fingerless gloves is a free Ravelry download.  If you aren't familiar with Ravelry, it is social networking site for knitting, crocheting, weaving and  spinning.  If you go to Ravelry.com, it is easy to sign up.  It is a very useful site for those interested in this type of thing.  You can find almost any type of project and answers to questions related to fiber arts. 

This is the link for the free pattern.  You can also see pictures of this project that others have knit.
