knit fingerless gloves - free pattern


Mochi Plus Wave Fingerless Gloves

Designed & Knit by Laura Andersson,
CPY ôSock Guru" and Sirius Knitting Publications

Inspiration: I am always inspired by new yarns, but the combo of the wonderful pastel rainbow of the baby face colorway of Mochi Plus and the softness of the yarn meant new wristers for me! It's a dampish May so far, so keeping my hands warm!
