Wrist-Length Fingerless Gloves

Because it’s autumn. Because I have a habit of losing my gloves. Because I had a little of Ms Monster Creation’s “peppermint bark” sock yarn leftover and because I have given up even the pretense of having working nerve endings in my fingers. Chiberia may be coming soon, but I still need to be able to work the touch screens on my electronics and flip off the occasional conservative voter or slow tourist. 

3.25mm circular needles
3.5mm crochet hook
Embroidery scissors
Yarn needle

The pattern for these gloves ended up being pretty simple and, in retrospect, a good exercise for anyone who is still learning basic stitches:

CO 64 stitches
Work 4 rows in k2p2 rib stitch.
Rows 5-26 in stockinette stitch.
Rows 27-32 in garter stitch
BO

To complete the seams, I folded each glove over with the wrong side facing out. I ended up seaming five stitches in on each end of the pattern, 6 rows from the top, 4 rows from the bottom, to create the thumb holes. I then used my scissors and yarn needle to trim and weave in the ends.

Altogether, the two of these each took about four hours from start to finish, including fighting with dropped stitches, missing needles, trial and error. I’m very pleased with the results. What do you think?
