Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round

Pattern Description:

There is a whole ideology behind the name for those fingerless gloves.
Ready? Here we go!
My hubby commutes every day and he asked for fingerless gloves so that his hands would be cozy since the moment he got into the car in winter. And here they are.
Where(tm)s the ideology? you might ask.
In zigzags! Every time he looks at them he will remember not to drive fast and skid when he(tm)s behind the wheel. And that he has a loving family to come back to.
Tah dah! :-)
