Boutique Fingerless Gloves or Mittens, Free Crochet Pattern

I had in fact designed this mittens last Fall, but never found the time to test and write the final draft. Well, I am so glad I published it now. This is my first time using the Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn and I absolutely love it. You could make almost 2 pairs using a skein and they come in a lot of attractive colorways. I will definitely be using more of this yarn in the future.
If any of you make these mittens, please share a picture with me. Since the yarn is so gorgeous I decided to name the pattern after the yarn itself. The yarn has a shiny smooth texture which is not captured in the photographs. The pattern is written to make a pair of seamless gloves. I hope you will give this lovely pattern a try.

    Love this EASY pattern! I've made 5 pair, each taking less than two hours. Two pair are in 100% wool for a friend who is going to Iceland next month! Thanks for sharing this great pattern for gift-giving. I wanted to attach some photos but could find an option for that.
