Feeling a little bit sassy or sweet? These Girly Gauntlets are just what you need to show off your inner child. Make the Short and Sweet version if you would rather have a shorter mitt. Put some buttons or a simple button flower on them for a cute embellishment. Simple to work up, these also make fantastic gifts!

Once upon a time, I lived in a small town and saw something crocheted and just HAD to learn what it was and how to do it. I was 11, and I haven't stopped since - I can honestly say that crocheting has been a huge part of my life. I decided to learn how to knit about 9 years ago, after being intimidated by it for a long time. So glad I finally learned!
I started actively designing in 2008 and haven't looked back. I used to sit down and create items for myself because I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for in other patterns. Then one day it dawned on me that I should try to write my ideas up for others. And here I am!
