I have to tell you am in love with this yarn – it is super soft and a pleasure to crochet with!
If you are looking for a quick project for yourself – or a great gift – try one, or both, of these designs!
To make both designs you will need 2 balls of Lion Brand Yarns Unique Yarn in the same colourway.
Each design takes one ball of yarn.

Joyful & Bright Fingerless Mitts
Yarn: Lion Brand Yarns Unique (Grapevine)
Hook: 6.0 mm (J)
Sized to fit: Women (Medium)
Abbreviations: R – row/round, ch – chain, blsc – back loop single crochet (i.e. single crochet in the back loop only), st – stitch, sts – stitches, sc – single crochet, sl st – slip stitch, (number in brackets at the end of the R) – this is the total number of stitches for the row/round, *to* – repeat the instructions between the two *s as indicated, sp – space, ch-1 sp – chain 1 space,
Ribbed Cuff (worked flat):
Leave an 8″ tail and Chain 9
R1: begin in the 2nd ch from your hook, 1 blsc in each st across, ch 1, turn (8)
R2: 1 blsc in each st across, ch 1, turn (8)
R3-24: repeat R2, do not finish off
Turn your work to allow you to work along the row ends of the ribbed cuff
Main Fingerless Glove (worked in rounds):
R1: 1 sc in each row end, sl st to the initial sc to join (24)
Note: you will work the 1st st of the round in the same st as the sl st join was made; do not work into the slip stitch (you may wish to mark the slip stitch so you remember not to work into it!)
R2: 1 sc in each st around, sl st to the initial sc to join (24)
You may wish to use your 8″ tail of yarn from the beginning of the Ribbed Cuff pattern to whipstitch the cuff closed (into a tube). You can also wait until you are finished to do this – totally up to you!

R3: (ch 2, 1 sc) in the 1st st, skip 1 st, *(1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in the next st, skip 1 st* repeat from * to * around, sl st into the sp between the initial ch 2 and the 1st sc of the round to join
R4: (ch 2, 1 sc) in the sp between the ch 2 and 1st sc of the round, (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in each ch-1 sp around, sl st into the sp between the initial ch 2 and the 1st sc of the round to join
R5-13: repeat R4 around
R14: (ch 2, 1 sc) in the sp between the ch 2 and 1st sc of the round, (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in each ch-1 sp around,do NOT sl st to join
R15: ch 2, skip the next 2 ch-1 spaces and beginning in the next ch-1 sp work: (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) into each ch-1 sp around, do NOT sl st to join
R16: work (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) around the ch 2 at the beginning of R15, work (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) into each ch-1 sp around, do NOT sl st to join
R17: work (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) into each ch-1 sp around
You may wish to repeat R17 one or two more times for some extra length if you like your fingerless mitts to be a little bit longer. I prefer mine to reach the edge of my knuckles but this is totally a personal preference!
Use an invisible finishing technique to finish off. Not sure how to do this? View this tutorial for help:
This pattern is designed to go with the Joyful & Bright Winter Earwarmer (cowl).
