Gather some berries, shuck some corn and churn some butter - pioneers need to protect their hands! Get back to basics with these simple fingerless gloves.

The ribbed stitch makes these gloves comfortable and stretchy. They look fantastic with any kind of sock yarn - solid, striped or speckled.

Sweet details like the delicate rolled cuff and the graceful lines made with the thumb increases are elegant and easy (even for beginners).

These gloves are knit from the bottom to the top with a fingering weight yarn. This pattern has three sizes, two lengths and no visible seam.

These gloves make a perfect companion project to the Sockhead Hat!
