Uncommon Gardening Gloves
Also available for $5.50 from the Interweave Store.
Donna looked in vain for gardening gloves with a comfortable fit, so being the adventurous knitter she is, she tried knitting a pair for herself. She used a washable cotton yarn blended with stretchy elastic to make her knitted gloves snug and flexible. The easy-to-knit side gussets allow lots of room for flexing thumbs, and are quite the ingenious feature of this knit gloves pattern. These gloves are definitely practical, but the lace pattern at the cuff makes them good enough for wearing out and about (after washing of course).
