Ruffle Children’s Fingerless Gloves

After making the ruffled leg warmers I wanted to make a matching pair of ruffle fingerless gloves.  Using the leg warmer pattern as my base – I was able to make a pattern.  I decided to add some fun fur to the gloves and am so glad that I did.  I really like these and think I need to readjust the pattern for an adult size!

Items Needed

1 skein medium weight yarn (I used the leftover skein from the leg warmers and still had yarn left)
Fun fur
Size 7 straight needlesDarning needle

I used a blue hue fun fur yarn – so one glove is lighter blue fun fur and the other a darker hue of blue – both Stella and I thought it made them look cool.

1. Cast on 32 stitches.

2. Work in ribbing (K2, P2) for 4 rows.

Ruffle gloves need to sew

17. With right sides together sew up the seam, starting at the ruffle end.  Sew seam for 4 1/4″. Leave a 1 inch space, weaving the yarn into the gloves and then sew the rest of the seam.  The opening is for the thumb.

I had Stella model these and she asked if they were really a gift – I think that was a hint that she would like a pair!
