For those who have been with me over the past 2 months, you will know that I decided to make a gift set for my niece whose birthday is in March. It began with a simple scarf in her favorite color. Next, I tackled doubled points and made a basic hat. I figured that no set is complete without a pair of gloves.
Gloves, I may be crazy, but I am not insane. With my limited knitting experience I knew better that to tackle a pair of gloves. I have not even looked to see how you would make those little fingers. But I had seen a better option on Pinterest – Finglerless Mitts. After looking several patterns I found that are 2 basic styles – A square that is sewn together, and those knitted in a tube. I opted for the tube style.
It all began with a pattern I found at My Jewel Thief Knits. Missy Angus created a cute set with button flap embellishments. I opted to not include the button flaps, but used the pattern. The set is now complete.
Update: This weekend Madison came to visit. She told me how much she loved them, and wanted me to teach her how to knit. I guess I did okay.
