Day 9 of the 12 days of DIY gifts to make presents a pair of super chunky gloves for those on your lists who love these types of fingerless gloves.
These are perfect for extra warmth without sacrificing your fingers especially those who need to still either text, get their social media on, or get work done in a cold office.
With a P hook and three strands of yarn, this is another fast gift to make. The pattern is for a small/med size.
The glove project time is about 2.5 hours to make.
Please do not post this pattern on your website or take it as your own. I ask that you instead link to my page, which will help with internet karma. Please note you can use this pattern for personal use and sell what you make. I only ask that you credit me as the pattern creator and link to this article. Thank you.
