Darling Diamond Fingerless Gloves (Free!)

Like free stuff?

Here ya go, a free (and fabulous) pattern!
These are the Darling Diamond Fingerless Gloves

(once called "wristies", but that name is trademarked
and therefore these are *not* "wristies",
because I might be sued for suggesting they are.
Yeah. Really.)
