These fingerless gloves are perfect for indoor or outdoor activities. The 6 page all-color pattern includes some hints on how to do the two-color braiding at the wrist. The gloves feature a sore thumb gusset, ribbed fingers that stop just below the middle knuckle on each finger, and a little finger that starts a few rows below the other fingers for the best fit. I used the Palette colors Grass and Marine Heather for the gloves shown.
