I love fingerless glove knitting patterns!

Before I became a knitter, I had no idea how useful fingerless gloves could be. I love that they keep your hands warm while allowing your fingers to do important tasks like knitting (of course!), typing, driving, digging money or a credit card out of your wallet, making phone calls, or sending text messages.

I’ve even been known to cook while wearing fingerless gloves!

Lately I’ve been on a mission to find the most popular knitting patterns available online. So, because autumn is finally arriving, this seems like a good time to find popular fingerless glove patterns.
