These gloves came about as, and I quote: "the hand-knit version of the nylon gloves you can find in a dollar store."
I wanted a pair of gloves that were lightweight, but very snug to the hand, perfect for spring or early fall, or, to layer under other mittens or gloves during winter.
The Pine Cone Stitch pattern uses only knits and purls to create a fun textured stitch that I instantly fell in love with so it seemed only natural to put these two things together to knit up a pair of lightweight gloves in fingering-weight yarn
Left and Right Gloves are identical, and you only need to complete one for this test.
