Springtime has arrived, but winter is not yet gone and cozy layers are still a must have. These fingerless gloves are knit with bulky yarn for a quick knit, perfect for a last minute or instant gratification project.

The lace reminded me of rows and rows of roots in the garden- a place where I’d love to get out and play right now- although probably not in fingerless gloves made of merino and silk!

Sizing: I wrote this in one size that would fit a medium/large adult. If you want a smaller size, go down a needles size for a slightly tighter gauge. This yarn can definitely be knit in a broad range of gauges.

Tip: If you notice that your gloves slouch or stretch with wear, sew clear elastic thread (found in the jewelry section in a craft store) all the way around the inside of the cuffs, making sure that the elastic tightens the cuff to fit snuggly on your forearms.
