Tunisian Simple Stitch Fingerless Gloves

Tunisian crochet is this beautiful medley of experiences that I have been having a wonderful time experimenting with, and I want to encourage other crocheters to expand into this art form. So I've come up with this very simple beginner's project for you to try. You don't even have to invest in a Tunisian hook to try this pattern. These gloves are so soft and comfortable, and even if you've never made gloves before, I'm confident you will be able to make them with no difficulty. If you are brand new to the idea of Tunisian Crochet, I would encourage you to visit my photo tutorial on The Tunisian Simple Stitch that is used in this pattern, as well as my photo tutorial on a Tunisian Crochet Bind-Off. After that, sit down with a fresh cup of coffee and make up these gloves for yourself or for a friend.
