After a very long break from working on the blog we are back! we apologise for the very long absence but we both felt like we had to step away for a bit due to other commitments and for our sanity's sake!
But now we are back and have tonnes of new patterns for you!
We are starting off with loads of small projects to get us back into the swing of things which ties nicely into this pattern, over on our facebook page its been suggested that patterns that can be used as gifts for Christmas and such that are easy to do would like to be seen so this is what we came up with :)
Things you need to know:
You will need one ball of regular DK wool
These come in 2 sizes, small/medium and medium/large, this can be seen throughout the pattern as different numbers like this (28/36), for the smaller size, follow the smaller number and for the bigger size, follow the bigger number.
Fingerless Gloves Pattern
Row 1: sc into second ch from hook and into every ch to the end of the row, ch 1 and turn (14)
Row 2-(28/36): sc into each sc, ch 1 and turn (14)
bring the two ends together and sl st through both layers to make your cuff,
do not finish off!
you will now be working in continuous rounds (no joining!) we recommend using a stitch marker to keep track of your rows
Rnd 1: distribute (28/36) sc around the top of the cuff
Rnd 2-14: sc in each sc around
Rnd 15: ch 6, miss 6 sc and sc into the 7th (this creates the thumb hole) , sc into each sc around
Rnd 16: work 6 sc into the ch 6 space, *sc into the next 4 sc, sc2tog* repeat (6/7) times
Rnd 17-22: sc in each sc around
Finish off and sew in loose ends with a tapestry needle
Turn right side out
And you're done!
Make the other and you have yourself a nice new snazzy pair of fingerless gloves!
Of course feel free to mess about with this pattern to make them custom fit to your size as the pattern doesn't change if you add or take stitches away :)
And play around with the colours! make them as plain or as funky as you like :) Just have fun with it!
As always please feel free to leave us a comment or head on over to our facebook page to keep up to date with what we are up to! we would also LOVE to see pictures of anything you make using our patterns!
