With the bitterness of Winter still lingering, I thought I should at least make an attempt to enjoy the cold. And so, I have filled my days with hikes and bird watching to make up for the longing of flowers. However, when the dreaded dreary rain comes, I make up for the cold with wool.
For this pattern, I wanted to create a loose fingerless glove that could be layered on top of winter gloves. At the thumb, I added stitches to give the glove a more comfortable fit, and to keep it from sliding. I made this glove a little large with the intent for it to be layered, but, if you would like a more fitted glove you can cast on 28 or 26 stitches instead.
