Leap! is a simple, stockinette stitch glove pattern that is meant to make the yarn the focus of your project rather than a stitch pattern. It is easily alterable and I even give tips on how to alter the pattern for ribbing and fingerless gloves. This pattern also includes photos to help you out as you come to the tricky parts of the pattern.

These gloves take about half of your average skein of sock yarn, but that is based on doing half fingers on your gloves. My large gloves took about 180 yards and my small about 140.
