This pair of fingerless gloves is inspired by a witch in flight. I imagine witches not wearing long sleeves because they would dip into cauldrons while stirring potions or get in the way while dueling. Therefore, witches would need a fingerless mitt to keep their arms warm in flight. Knit from fingertips down to adjust the length for the individual witch, and a six stitch repeat of diamonds with woven pattern on the palms for grip on her broomstick; these fingerless gloves are perfect for a witch in flight in search of trick or treaters to steal their essence or turn into mice.

Gloves are one size, fitting an average female hand. Pattern is a 6 stitch repeat and could be adjusted for larger hands.

Gauge is 28sts/4in in diamond pattern. The designer knit at stockinette swatch at 24sts/4in to compare.

Pattern requires approximately 60g (255 yds)
of fingering weight yarn for gauntlet length gloves.
