PATTERN DETAILS

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.

I have been knitting for 60 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together! I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at woohoopepper@hotmail.com with any of your questions or concerns. You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern. Thank you and happy knitting!
