When one of my nieces said that she wanted a pair of fingerless gloves, I decided that I would make her a pair for Christmas. The pattern I used was “Yummy Mummy Wristwarmers”, a Ravelry download by Alexandra Brinck .
I used Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino yarn and US#0 needles. Because the yarn is a fingering weight, I used a toothpick, with the pointy ends sanded down, as my cable needle. It was just the right small size to easily hold the cable stitches forward of back.
The palm has a twisted rib (purl, knit through the back of the stitch) so it has a firmer fabric.
These were so fast to knit and they look darling on my niece (who is the lovely hand model)!
