This knitting pattern is for a quick, cute, textured pair of fingerless gloves that will keep your hands and wrists warm but your fingers free, whether it's in a chilly office or at an ever-so-slightly nippy spring picnic.
This listing is for the knitting pattern only, in PDF format. It will be available to you as soon as you make your purchase, using the power of Etsy's shiny new digital downloads system! (After your purchase, you should immediately receive a link to your Downloads page, and the file should also always be accessible through your Purchases page.)
The 6-page pattern includes simple charts, using knit and purl stitches only — relatively easy stuff! (One test-knitter said the pattern would make a good introduction to charts.) Written directions are also included, for knitters who prefer words to charts.
The fingerless gloves are knit in the round from the patterned cuff to the finger-edge, with an option for a rolled-edge cuff edging. The body of the fingerless gloves has a raised diamond pattern formed by purl stitches on a field of stockinette stitch.
