Doodle gloves and fingerless mitts pattern by Katya Frankel from Head to Toe: Kids' Knit Accessories. The geometrical pattern for these gloves was inspired by some daft doodling my kids used to do to decorate their hands. The lice-stitch technique used here sprinkles single stitches of contrast color across the background, and is a clever way of carrying your contrasting yarn through the long stretches while working large, non-repeating motifs of colorwork. You can make these gloves either with fingers or without. And as an added bonus, your kid can have a doodle on his or her hands without having to clean off the marker later.
