Fingerless Gloves

Week 2 of my goal to keep the blog regularly updated and today I’m sharing with you our fingerless glove pattern which was printed in the Sherborne Times back in December. These make great quick gifts.

 

(Please note I am aware that the blog is not letting you write comments at the moment. I am having a few issues with it but my technical support are on the case so hopefully, fingers crossed, it will be working soon)

 

You will need:

50g Stylecraft Batik DK wool

3.25mm needles and 4mm needles

Cable needle

Abbreviations

Inc – increase

K2tog – knit 2 together

P2tog – purl 2 together

CB6 – Slip next 3stitches onto cable needle and hold to the back of work, knit the next 3 stitches then knit the 3 from the cable needle.

Inc1 – pick up the loop between the stitch you have just knitted and the next one. Put it on your left needle and knit into the back of it.
