Bust the Stash Project 8

Use after making the cowl (with the excess yarn - predicted to be in the range of yardage required to make these gloves).


This is the easiest little pattern. You can make a pair in a couple of hours, easily and it gets rid of @75-100 yards of yarn. Not a bad supplement to a matching scarf. I’ve not made the thumb in this way before (there are so many ways to make gussets) and I find it really intuitive.


I made the top of the gloves and the top of the thumbs in seed stitch (to match the cowl I’m making with the rest of the stash). They look fine. I don’t love this yarn - it’s too itchy and hairy. Really liked it the last time I worked with it but, this time, I’m totally over it. Will not use it again.
