Primrose and Proper Fingerless Gloves
"These beautiful, lacy fingerless gloves are a project works up in an hour or two. They also match my Primrose and Proper Slouch hat, and either the Primrose and Proper Super Scarf, or the Primrose and Proper Cowl, so you can make a complete set for a special person, or charity. This pattern is worked sideways to begin, then you will fold the resulting rectangle in half, put the edging on both ends, and then sew up the sides leaving room for the thumb hole. It’s pretty easy, and once you make the first glove the second should go very quickly."
NotesYou must be familiar with working in the 3rd loop of an hdc stitch: After turning, work all stitches for the specified row in the 3rd loop of the hdc from previous row (it will be in the front). Instructions: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back*, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop. *When working in rows, this loop will be facing you*
