When I sat down to make my easy beginners knit and purl hat, I had only a vague hope that there would be enough yarn left over to make myself a pair of fingerless gloves (gauntlets) to match my new hat. Lo and behold, lady luck favored me that night and I was able to make myself these easy to knit gloves to match.

Love these gloves but I have tried knitting, just cannot do it. Maybe I can figure out a crochet pattern. ^

Hello your gloves are beautiful!! Well done.

One question though where it has *k1 p1* k1 , do you repeat everything between * or alternate each time?
