I made these right in time for Christmas for my husband. My thought was that the bright orange would make these gloves hard to lose in the snow and dark of winter. They came together really quickly. I skipped the thumb opening since we don’t really text. The clever construction of these gloves worked the fingers from the top down, which really reduced seaming bulk. They wound up being a little too big, so I felted them by hand until they were perfect.
I’m so pleased with how they came out, and more importantly, the recipient wears them constantly! Being 100% wool, they are really warm and comfortable. This was my first project from the new Interweave Gifts book, and I’m looking forward to knitting others.
