These nifty fingerless gloves are perfect for keeping the chill off your hands on a brisk Autumn day. They are a quick-to-knit project, showcasing the beautiful seasonal colours of Donegal tweed -- why not make several pairs?

I wrote the pattern for my friends at Studio Donegal. If you visit their lovely shop in Kilcar, you can buy a pair of these gloves that have been hand-made by local knitters, or purchase a printed pattern and skein of yarn to knit your own.

(Visit Studio Donegal’s website for yarn purchases, or email if you are interested in a hand-knitted pair).
