I am outrageously pleased
with how my first fingerless gloves turned out.
Well, technically this is my second pair;
I used the same pattern and yarn for the first set,
but they turned out uncomfortably small for me,
so a I gave them to a friend with tiny hands
who will be able to enjoy them much more.
(It's a lot harder than I thought it would be
to take photos of myself wearing them.)
I used this pretty Three Leaf Mitt pattern.
It was very well written,
and I discovered that following
what I believe is something like a lace chart
is nowhere near as hard as I feared!
To make my second pair larger,
I simply added an extra rib on the palm (3 knits and 1 purl).
I also added an extra three rows
to the all-around ribbing at the top and the bottom
because I liked the way it looked and fit better that way.
Fingerless gloves are so quick and fun.
I could easily get addicted to making them.
