Free Pattern - Fingerless Gloves!

Hooray, it's here!

I asked you what pattern you wanted and first place was claimed by fingerless gloves, and to my surprise the skinny bow scarf came at a second. My surprise about the scarf is because it was such an easy design that I had forgotten about until I looked on the photos page and decided I should put it on the poll. Health permitting, it will be written up next week.
Lets get on with the free pattern. This is a photo of what you'll be knitting, one glove from two different pairs if you want, you could make a pair purposely made to have different colours like in the photo or you could make a matching pair!

These gloves fit me but are quite loose and I have small wrists, if you want to make them any bigger or smaller take off/add on a multiple of 6 stitches. I measured around the glove whilst wearing it and it was 18cm but the ribbing stretches a lot.

To make these gloves you'll need.
3 1/2mm knitting needles (you could convert to dpns/magic loop if you mark the beginning of the round)
Sewing needle for yarn
DK yarn in two different colours, I use Special by Stylecraft, it's soft, cheap and cheerful

With colour A (the dark blue/dark green in the photo) cast on 42 stitches

Row 1 *k3 p3* until end
Row 2 *p3 k3* until end
Repeat rows 1-2,  2 times (6 rows)
Change to colour B
Repeat Rows 1 -6
Change to colour A

Repeat until you have 4 stripes in each colour, last stripe should be in colour B.

Change to colour A
Row 1 *K1, Kfb* until end
Row 2 *K1, P1* until end
Row 3 *p1, k1* until end
Repeat row 2-3 2 more times (5 rows in total since change to colour A)
Cast off

Sew the seam using the same colour as the stripe, leaving a gap for your thumb, it's up to you how long the gap is.

Please let me know how the pattern is for you, I'm not feeling 100% today so I couldn't work out how many stitches you'd have after Row 1 (k1, kfb) after knitting 4 stripes in each colour.

I hope you like the pattern, it's quick to knit up and really easy, if you do knit the pattern feel free to send photos to me at jasminescrafts@hotmail.co.uk

Trained lions and tigers would perform tricks alongside
bears, beastarii would exhibit their talents as beast tamers,
especially in the ancient bull fights. The demonstration came about after Bailey hired Kevin Melvoin-Berg
of Weird Chicago Tours to create a presentation on sexual
fetishes. I were built with a patient who said it very simply:
"I can't bring myself to avoid despite knowing each of the horrid consequences of my actions.
