I am proud to offer my very first Original pattern for sale!
I made these beautiful fair isle gloves for my Grandmother Roberta for Christmas. She is the most wonderful woman I have ever known, and as such, deserves a pair of stunning, original, hand made gloves.
The pattern is written for a woman's medium, with adaptation instructions for fingerless mitts.
Fingering weight wool yarn
215 yrds Off White (135yrds for Fingerless mitts)
50 yrds Brown
Size 1 circular or double pointed needles
I highly recommend that these gloves be knit on either magic loop, or 2 circ method because of the fair isle pattern. There is a separate chart for the back of the hand and for the palm. I find it much easier to keep track if these sections are on separate needles. If you prefer dpn, however, I recommend 5 dpn rather than 4 so that the palm half can be on 2 needles and the back of the hand can be on the other 2 needles.
