Very simple, very cute, very stylish and VERY warm fingerless gloves a.k.a. texting gloves or driving gloves or riding your bike gloves or walking your dog and having your fingers free to throw that ball for the umptiest time gloves... well you get the idea :)

This pattern knits up incredibly fast and is especially designed to showcase (YOUR!) handspun yarn, but it can be also knitted with commercially spun yarn that will match the gauge.

You can knit these gloves in 3 lengths:

wrist covering short as shown in picture 1
(the sample is knitted with handspun yarn that I created from a lovely Jacobs fleece that I purchased from Sandy Ryan's Homestead Farm and weighs about 2.6 oz. The Jacobs fiber is slightly fulled to provide additional warmth. I added scalloped crochet accents with a solid brown Border-Leicester yarn that was leftover from another handspun project)

medium as shown in picture 2
(the sample is knitted with my handspun yarn of Shetland lambswool and mohair, weighing in just under 2 ounce, I spun the yarn lace-weight and knitted the gloves holding 2 strands together. I added scalloped crochet accents around the thumbhole and the top of the glove and a knit border at the bottom to look like gauntlets)

elbow length long as shown in picture 3
(the sample is knitted with just a little over 2 oz of handspun yarn of a mix of lovely Jacobs fleece from Sandy Ryan's Homestead Farm plied with my hand-carded spinning batt Camouflage Fashion, spun up loftily)

Skills needed: cast on, knit, purl, yarn over, 3-needle bind-off, simple crochet.

Please convo me with any questions.

Happy Knitting :)

This pattern will be free if you purchase one of my 2.5/3 ounce skeins of handspun yarn.
Please convo me before you make your purchase to discuss suitable yarn choices.
