Hello & thanks so much for stopping by!
These last couple of weeks I've been re-writing a past scarf pattern and I've worked up these fingerless gloves to match it. I will add links at the end of this pattern for said scarf and the new matching ear warmer too! Please be sure to read through all the important notes listed below before starting.
Above are a couple extra photos showing the backside of the glove and then the seam, clicking the image will enlarge it.
This pattern now has a video tutorial, you can watch below or here on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBxNNEahPS0
Skill Level: Intermediate
As a guide my wrists measure 6" (left) & 6.25" (right) and the measurement taken at the top of my hand and around the knuckles is 7.5" (left) 7.75" (right). These gloves have some stretch and will definitely fit a hand/wrist a little larger. I suggest wrapping the foundation chain around your wrist to help determine if these will work for you.
