Sparrow Fingerless Gloves

Lion Brand Sock-EaseTM

GAUGE:

32 sts + 40 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) over pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

kfb (knit in front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st – 1 st increased.
M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop – 1 st increased.
ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog – 1 st decreased.
sk2p Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over – 2 sts decreased.

Sparrow Fingerless Gloves Reviewed by Alissa Barnett on 2012-05-04 *****
I loved this pattern! This was only my second knitting in the round project, and while I had a little trouble with the first glove by the second I was in the groove. I have very long arms and hands, and I made them exactly as the pattern specifies and they fit me well. The sock ease is also extremely easy to work with.
