How Do You Make Felted Fingerless Gloves?
Fingerless wool gloves are soft and warm, yet allow you to retain the use of your fingers, unlike mittens or even traditional gloves. In addition, fingerless gloves can be trendy and fashionable even when it is not cold outside. You can make stylish fingerless gloves even if you are on a tight budget and have limited sewing skills. Just head to a thrift store for some wool sweaters in colors and patterns you like and get started. Place a sweater made of wool into a mesh laundry bag. This will protect your washing machine from bits of wool clogging and damaging it. Wash the sweater in hot water and then dry it on high heat. Repeat two or three times until the sweater has shrunk and you can no longer detect the original texture of the knit. Trace the outline of the hands and arms of the person for whom you want to make fingerless gloves. You can opt to trace the arm just to the wrist, or trace the length of the arm for longer, “arm warmer” gloves. Trace the hand with the fingers together
