This knitting pattern makes a quick, cute, textured pair of fingerless gloves that will keep your hands and wrists warm but your fingers free, whether it's in a chilly office or at an ever-so-slightly nippy spring picnic. The 6-page pattern includes simple charts, using knit and purl stitches only relatively easy stuff! (One test-knitter said the pattern would make a good introduction to charts.) Written directions are also included, for knitters who prefer words to charts. The fingerless gloves are knit in the round from the patterned cuff to the finger-edge, with an option for a rolled-edge cuff edging. The body of the fingerless gloves has a raised diamond pattern formed by purl stitches on a field of stockinette stitch. Gauge and yarn weight are used to adjust sizing.

Half pirate, half ninja, all adventurer! I'm an eternal anthropologist and a lover of stories, whether written in words or silk strands or sparkly gemstones. I love to know how things are made, so I learn voraciously, craft eccentrically, and am always seeking new inspiration. As a kid, I sewed clothes and accessories for my dolls and my dragon collection. When I was older, I sewed costumes for myself whenever I could — Halloween, the Renaissance Festival, sf/fantasy conventions, anything was a good excuse! I learned to make wire wrap jewelry because I love gemstones and sparkly things. I was inspired to learn spinning after I bought a skein of handspun yarn and suddenly remembered that a professor in college made a comment that you can spin dryer lint. ;) I also crochet, knit, weave, and dye, because ... well, why not?
