Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit stitch

Pattern Description:

My nearly 5 year old granddaughter admired my fingerless gloves, so I decided to design a pair for her tiny hands and make them colorful. I decided she also needed legwarmers to go with the gloves that she could wear to either ballet class or gymnastics class.

I think any young lady would love wearing this set. I sewed the optional bows onto the ring fingers, which should help younger girls to put the gloves on the correct hands because there is a left and a right glove.

My preferred yarn for this project is Caron Simply Soft 100% acrylic. It can easily be found at Michaels, Hobby Lobby and JoAnn Fabrics. Although it is considered a worsted, it seems to be a light worsted and closer to a DK.
