These nifty fingerless gloves are perfect for keeping the chill off your hands on a brisk Autumn day. They are a quick-to-knit project, showcasing the beautiful seasonal colours of Donegal tweed — why not make several pairs?
I wrote this pattern for my friends at Studio Donegal. If you visit their lovely shop in Kilcar, you can buy a pair of these gloves hand-made by local knitters, or purchase a printed pattern together with a skein of yarn to knit your own. (Visit their website for yarn purchases, or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a hand-knitted pair.)
