Anisoptra Ear Warmer and Fingerless Gloves

 A Free Crochet Pattern and a Premium Crochet pattern



It took me a while to come up with a name for this ear warmer, and fingerless gloves pattern set. So I took to social media to have you guys help me out. One of you suggested something along the lines of Dragon fly. I googled the scientific name of the dragon fly and decided to go with that. 


But there was an interesting factoid, that I just had to share. According to the Britannica the dragon fly is referred to as the Devil's Darning Needle. "The term devil’s darning needle is derived from a superstition that dragonflies may sew up the eyes, ears, or mouth of a sleeping child, especially one who has misbehaved." My thought was, "well that's just creepy and perfect for Halloween. That solidified my decision for the name."  


This set uses post stitches to create bold lines and design with textured detail, making these accessories pop. These are quick projects that don't use a lot of yarn and don't take a lot of time. I was able to get the whole set with just one skein, but I felt like I was playing yarn chicken the whole time with the last glove so you might want to grab 2 skeins just in case. 


Be sure to read below on how you can get a free PDF of one of these patterns. Offer good until the end of the year 2020.

Lacey Shell Fingerless Gloves

A free crochet pattern




I have another Christmas present to share with you. My SIL asked me to make her some fingerless gloves. She sent me some pictures of different ones she liked on Pinterest. From those pictures I gathered that she wanted some that had a cuff and had an interesting element to them. With that in mind I made some fingerless gloves with my own flare.

As you know lace is my favorite. But it is not really practical in the winter when you want to stay warm. I thought why not add layers. I picked bold colors to really show off the lace.

*Update* Now that it has been a few years. I can say that I have made this pattern more than any  of my other patterns. I have made these gloves for teacher gifts, Christmas presents, craft fairs and everything in-between. People always comment on how warm they are because of the double layers. This isn't the most popular pattern on the blog in downloads but it is the pattern that I get commissions for the most.  




Designer: Julia Schwartz
Yarn: Any fingering size yarn will do. I have used everything from Red Heart LusterSheen, KnitPicks Hawthorne, Lionbrand Touch of Merino. Whatever best fits your budget. 
Hook: E-4
Gauge: 5 rows =2 inches, 12 dc = 2 inches
Size: Fits most women's adult hands
Stitches used: sc, ch, dc, sl st, sc through the back loop.
