Knit fingerless gloves for children free pattern

With winter preparations underway, I knit some fingerless gloves for my son to add another layer between him and the cold. He’s also super sensitive to the cold so even at 25 C he’s wearing his poncho. I thought these would be nice and snug around his arms but he could still use his hands. They appeal to his sensory nature of wanting to be wrapped up too.
