Notes

CO 50 stitches
two at a time, magic loop.
I really like the thumb gusset on these gloves.

YARN is a heavier fingering but absolutely perfect for mitts or gloves and the colour is gorgeous.

Easy peasy pattern and highly recommend watching the video tutorial by VeryPink Knits if you’re a beginner -- you’ll see how simple it is to make these. Great gift item too.

Truest colour is the top photo and the WIP with the plants.

NOTE ABOUT WASHING: After reading notes from others who have used this yarn, I chose to soak them for an hour in 50-50 cold water-cold vinegar. Minor bleeding. Then rinsed them with cold water, washed gently by hand in cold water & shampoo; rinsed. Then let them sit for half an hour in cold water & conditioner. Squeezed in a towel and dried flat. Should be okay to give away now.
