Claudia’s Fingerless Gloves
As the name suggests I designed Claudia’s Fingerless Gloves for my niece Claudia. A few months ago I designed and knitted up a cowl for her. She had asked me for a bulky warm cowl to wear with her red dress coat. She wanted something simple and unadorned; one that added warmth but didn’t draw too much attention away from her fabulous red coat. As we know shades of grey and black always look amazing with red. So I took it from there. If you want to take a peek at her cowl you will find the link to Claudia’s Bulky Cowl below. Well, enough about her fabulous cowl, let’s turn our attention to Claudia’s Fingerless Gloves and the inspiration for them.
Being the fantastic aunt that I am; I quickly responded to her request for a matching pair of fingerless gloves. Again she wanted a simple and unadorned pattern. Pulling the shades of grey and the ribbed stitch pattern from the cowl, I designed a classic design for her fingerless gloves. These gloves will look great whether wearing your best coat or your favorite pair of “worn out” jeans. Needless to say, I remain the favorite aunt.
♥For those knitters that appreciate and/or need video tutorials, I included a video on how to complete M1P, the increase I used for these gloves. ♥The pattern also includes instructions for working the thumb flat as well as in the round.
