After making a few dish cloths,a scarf and a coffee sleeve I began to feel pretty comfortable crocheting. Or at least adventurous to try something new, a friend mentioned wanting a pair of fingerless gloves so I began searching the Internet to find an easy pattern. If you ever need a pattern for anything I recommend using Crochet Pattern Central.
this patten. It was easy to follow and well written for a beginner like me. You can't really tell but there is a small cuff at the top of the glove.
The next set I made I sort of made up my own pattern. I got the idea for the buttoned cuff from the coffee sleeve I had previously made. Then I basically followed the first pattern.
