Put your passion in your fashion!

They provide us with the best fibre known to humankind, so of course knitters love sheep! Declare that love with these cosy fingerless gloves, designed for woolly comfort in cold weather. Featuring sheep and shepherd’s plaid, they will definitely suit ewe!

To make Gimmers at the tension/gauge given above you will need up to 58 metres/63 yards of your main colour, and up to 115 metres/126 yards of contrast colour. The pictured sample was knitted with baa ram ewe Dovestone DK, a wonderfully sheepy 100% British wool yarn, full of Yorkshire loveliness!

Please note the pattern only includes instructions for knitting the fingerless mittens, not the matching hat and cowl. You can find the Shornies hat pattern here, and the Dewlap cowl pattern here.
