Fingerless gloves …. knitted !!!!!

…. Do I have a hat ? I have one ….
…. Do I have a scarf ? just done ….

…. but what about some gloves? Work to be done !!!!

This time I put aside my crochet hooks and collected, instead, a pair of straight knitting needles ….



I knitted them in one afternoon, so they are really quick to knit …


… and as you see from the various pics, I preferred to "sew" them not by using the mattress stitch, but by crocheting a row of single crochets …. final touches : a braid at the base of the gloves and a mini tassel at the top of them …

my left glove

my right glove



The pattern I followed is from this book …


… and the pattern is this one ….


They seem very tiny, but they fit properly, I must say …





Tobia asked for a pair, too ….



… same size as mine …. this is a good quality about ribbed gloves … one size fits all !!!! ;oD
The only difference from the original pattern (and my pair of gloves) is that I casted on 30 stitches, instead of 26, so that the thumb is in the centre of the glove and there are no more right and left gloves : they are all the same!

…. London we are ready (!!!!) and NO, I'm not going to crochet/knit a jacket : no time left!!!!!
