Pucker Stitch Fingerless Gloves
Pucker Stitch Fingerless Gloves reveal just how pretty a simple stitch pattern can create a lovely design. These gloves were designed for, insert drum roll here, ME! Once you have mastered the simple pucker stitch technique you can delete, insert, change the length and depth of each pucker and even add more if you like. The pucker stitch also creates a wonderful hat design. So….. go crazy and let’s see what you design.
For my Pucker Stitch fingerless gloves, I chose Baby Cashmerino by Debbie Bliss yarns. As everyone from my LYS knows, I LOVE all things, Debbie Bliss. Her Baby Cashmerino yarn is one of my first choices for all things fabulous! Now don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of amazing yarns out there. But this particular yarn is the only yarn that I have ever bought “Just Because” I love the yarn without having a design already in mind. Unlike so many of my fellow knitters; I am not one that has a huge stash. Being the minimalist that I am, I only buy what I need for the current design I am working on. I have never purchased yarn “Just Because”; with Baby Cashmerino being the only exception; so far.
