Fingerless gloves are great for keeping your hands and wrists warm in cool weather. This glove is cut off at the first knuckle of the hand with either a raw or hemmed edge. These provide the least warmth, but the most functionality for your hands. Let's look at some fashionable fingerless gloves knitting pattern:
Mittens have no "fingers," but are often considered gloves too. Mittens provide extra warmth by keeping the fingers close together allowing them to share their heat. The drawback of a mitten is that you have limited use of your hands because the fingers are not separate. A mitten can have interior insulation by being stuffed with cotton, like an inexpensive glove. Often times they have insulation in the form of faux or real fur or sherpa on the interior that allows for your hands to have a soft, cozy texture inside.
Leather gloves is one of the most popular trends this winter, from leather apparel such as jackets, pants, and dresses to leather accessories such as gloves and jewelry. Another reason for you to invest in leather items is that they will stay with you for more than one season since this material is always fashionable and long lasting.
