A Premium Knitting Pattern
When I made my Watching Sparrows Cowl I had a lot of people tell me they would love having fingerless gloves to go with the cowl pattern. At the time I did not have any experience designing gloves. I was determined to figure it out though. Through a lot of research, trial and error and over a year of work I am ready to share the pattern with you. I don't think I have ever worked so long on a pattern.
I tried to simplify the pattern as much as possible. The pattern is made for someone working the glove with a magic loop or 2 circular needles. I have provided 2 videos in the pattern to get you started with that type of cast on. Once you cast on the pattern is divided with a side A and a side B for each round. You could also refer to this as the front side of the glove and the back side of the glove. Please let me know what you think of this pattern set up and if you found it helpful.
Where to get this pattern.
Through Ravelry I have a deal where if you put both the Watching Sparrows fingerless gloves and Cowl pattern in the cart one of the patterns will be free.
