Faerie Gloves

The Faerie Gloves are designed to be knit with left over yarn. They’re worked top down, and feature an upside down Indian thumb gusset and a ruffly picot cast off. Combination of stockinette, seed stitch, and 1×1-rib makes these top down gloves easy to create, and pretty to behold.

The Faerie Gloves are best made with fingering weight yarn. I used left overs from The Faerie Dragon Shawlette, but any kind of yarn suitable for 3,5 MM / US4  needles will do. These gloves are worked top down, and will eat up all of the yarn reserved for them. With a built-in thumb gusset, The Faerie Gloves have a perfect fit, too!

This pattern is partly recipe-style: you choose the length of the upper palm and the wrist depending on how much yarn you wish to use. The Faerie Gloves Knitting Pattern (dl size 1.1Mt) is available in English only.
