I love Valentine’s Day! It has such a positive vibe and it inspires us to focus on the warmth and tenderness of love. Love is an emotion that can be expressed in so many ways, some more easily than others. While some of us may choke on words of adoration, it may be easier to show our love through actions, giving of our time, hugs, kindness, and gifts.

The endearing Heart Fingerless Gloves & Mitts is a duo crochet pattern that offers a trendy knitted look. Created by Natalie from HaekelteufelDesigns on Etsy, these hand warmers have love expressed all over them. Once considered a fad, today hand warmers are a must-have practical fashion accessory.
You really score with this pattern — you have the option of making fingerless gloves or mittens or both! With a few basic crochet stitches, you can create a 3D effect that makes the heart stand out. I love this artistic and clever design. It has so much personality. A lot of fingerless glove patterns do not cover the thumb, so I was delighted this pattern considered the warmth of all our fingers.
The pattern is very detailed with clear written instructions and a full-color photo tutorial for every step. You can make two sizes, one for adults and the other for children ages 6-12. Once you get into the groove of making the gloves or mitts, you can make other sizes by adjusting the length of your foundation chain.
Fingerless gloves offer you warmth, protection, and non-restrictive dexterity so you can drive, cycle, kayak, take snaps and selfies, write, type, and of course, text. These Heart Handwarmers would make ideal Valentine’s Day gifts for everyone you know, including your children, cyclists, photographers, hikers, seniors and so on. If you are interested, Natalie has a matching Heart Beanie Pattern that would partner perfectly with the hand warmers for an ideal gift set. The pattern is available in English and German.
