My mom started me with knitting and crocheting at the age of 5. As my knowledge of it outgrew my moms, I turned to my sister for help when I didn't understand something. I home schooled through 10th grade and graduated in 2009 with a public school. I can't live without Irish dancing and am currently studying to take the 4 day exam to be a certified teacher in 2014. When I'm not teaching dance or martial arts to young kids, my hands are always busy making something.
Besides knitting and crocheting, I have done many other crafty things as well, such as counted cross stitch, embroidery, bobbin lace making, latch hook, sewing, and bead work. Of everything I have tried, crocheting is my favorite. I love detailed work and have been told that I make things too perfect - as if that were possible.
In this new year of 2012 I am wanting to try creating patterns to sell. People always love my work and often ask for the pattern that I used, and I hate when I have to turn them down saying I created it myself or tweaked and combined other patterns to make it.
This pattern is designed for a beginner knitter to read because you don't need to know all the fancy abbreviations! To help a beginner become familiar with them though, abbreviations are included in parenthesis, italics, and a dark gray color. Your brain will start to understand abbreviations without the frustration of being unable to know what the pattern is telling you to do! It also makes a fast and easy project for experienced knitters.
This pattern is designed so that you can use any yarn weight with any size needle to produce fingerless gloves for any size hand! Use bulky yarn for warmth in the winter or a fine yarn for decorative gloves in spring and fall. There is a very small amount of math involved, but I walk you through the steps and provide all the information for you, you just have to plug in the numbers!
