My sister's been asking me to make her a pair of fingerless gloves for ages, but I never got around to it, because she's terribly picky
I was sick and stuck in bed this weekend, though, so I finally came up with a pattern that pleased her!
I'm really really happy with how they turned out!
I'm working on a pattern if anyone's interested.
Here is the pattern!Now with a handy PDF!

Tips for increasing/decreasing the pattern:
-You need a multiple of three plus one for the starting chain.
-For a larger hand, in Round 10 of pattern you may need to skip the last two
dc clusters instead of just the last one.
Let me know if you have any difficulties with the pattern! If you make a pair, I'd love to see some pictures!
