This is a really simple but versatile pattern, with each glove knitting up quickly. They’re the perfect quick gift, so easy to customize and stretchy enough to fit a wide range of sizes. I knit a pair up in three days for a friend’s birthday, and to complement her trendy style these are embellished with some really cool sew-on gems. I love how the slightly fuzzy wool contrasts against the edgy stones for a homespun-meets-glam look.
US size 5 needles (DPNS) can also be used with this pattern with little gauge difference.
To work gloves flat, simply cast on stitches, work to designated length, bind off, and sew up seam, leaving about 1.5” open for thumb hole.
