Do you remember the snood made in moss stitch and rib 1/1 I knitted a few months ago for my friend Carole? Well as it was remaining a little bit of wool, we said that I could use it to make a pair of fingerless gloves for a coordinated set.
I was happy to raise to the challenge because I finally do something other than scarves or snoods and then it was a great opportunity to use my new circular needles Hiya Hiya my man gave me for Christmas. For these fingerless gloves that we wanted simple, I used different techniques and stitches of knitting: ribs 1/1, moss stitch, buttonhole and technique of magic loop to knit in round.
It starts with 8 rows of ribs 1/1.
We continue with 14 rows of moss stitch.
And then, we have to do a buttonhole in 4 chains length.
To finish, we do 12 rows of ribs 1/1 and voila ! The fingerless gloves are the same on the left and on the right so you just have to do it again.
Here some details :
Equipment used :
1,5 balls of yarn RAPIDO color CHANVRE (50 g – 41 m/pelote)
