Fingerless crochet mittens

Picture of Fingerless crochet mittens
I had been looking for a cute, simple, nice pattern for crochet fingerless mittens for a while, but all the nice patterns were knitting patterns. Now, I am able to knit, but I can only knit straight forward, reaaaally slowly. So, I decided to give my thoughts a go and make up my own pattern while crocheting! This instructable includes full explanation for people who can't already crochet, and for those who can crochet, the pattern is included in the last step.

I hope you like this project and give it a try! I would love to see the results posted in the comments below :)

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
To make these fingerless mittens, you will need the following:

- Yarn (about 25 gram)
- Crochet hook
- Scissors
- Needle

Step 2: Let's start!

Take your yarn and start by making a slip knot (don't worry, it's shown in the pictures). For those who don't find the pictures clear enough, here is an explanation in words: Fold the yarn  in order to create a loop. Take the loop and place it on the yarn. (the side where the yarn is still attached, when you use the other side you won't come far)

Now you will see a loop with yarn running underneath it. Take that yarn and pull it up trough the loop. Pull it and when you have the loop/knot, insert your crocheting needle and pull the yarn (on the side of the yarn.)

I used a 2.5 mm, that's B/C
Thanks. My wife crochets and that's the first question she'd ask.
