I got the idea from this post but I was not sure of the instructions being a beginner. I was unsure what the pattern meant by decrease the way it was stated. I looked around Ravelry for a while and found this pattern and it was more plainly written so I used it with some alterations. I felt chuffed at making my own changes after only two projects (which were the same hat)!!
Next I made the bow with these instructions. My original inspiration gloves linked to this pattern. Scroll down until it mentions the bow! Or make the hat!
The Boyfriend Gloves pattern was written just perfect especially for a free pattern! I made changes but only because I have freakishly small baby wrists and short little fingers. I also did not change colors. I made one glove just as the pattern said and I did not want to deal with all those loose ends so I killed that idea. Story of my life.
WHAT I DID
I used more hobby yarn and both were from skeins I just picked up with no plan! More hoarding progress! I used this navy sparkle yarn and this mottled mustard yarn. These only use a handful of yarn so they would make excellent last-minute gifts.
This is my rewritten pattern for the gloves:
Chain 20 loosely.
Rows 1-3: Ch 2, DC in each stitch around. Join round with slip stitch.
Row 4: Ch 2, DC in next 4 stitches. 2 DC in each stitch for 3 stitches, DC in next 2 stitches, 2 DC in last stitch. Join round with slip stitch.
Row 5: CH 2, DC1, CH 4, SK 4 stitches, DC to end. Join round with slip stitch.
Row 6: CH 1, SC in each stitch. Join round with slip stitch.
Row 7: CH 2, *DC next 10 stitches, SK 1 stitch* to end. Join round with slip stitch.
Row 8: CH 2, DC in each stitch. Join round with slip stitch.
Row 9: CH 1, SC in each stitch. Join round with slip stitch.
Row 10: CH 2, DC in each stitch. Join round with slip stitch.
Finish off ends and weave those bad boys in!
You can make a glove soooo fast!
