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 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!
