Podster Gloves done

pattern by Glenna C., (see link on her website.)


Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Sock Yarn.

CO 72 sts with 2 x 3.0 mm circs; 3.0 mm circs also for the stockinette and half fingers.

one, 2.5 mm circs for ribbing, 2-at-a-time ML.
this yarn may shrinks so making these mittens on the large side to allow for shrinkage/felting, (adding 1” to length, 1” to width.)

3.75 mm circs for the flip top join; CO 37 sts for the palms.

I am afraid of running out of yarn if I do the half fingers first, so I cut the yarns after making the thumb holes and the base of the fingers;
doing the flip tops first, then
the thumbs, and
lastly, the fingers, (if I run out of yarn then these will be in CC scraps.)
fingers; (11x2) +3 = 25; (8x2) +3+3 = 22; (8x2) +3+3 = 22; pinky (8x2) +3 = 19.
did the pinky fingers first, 3 rows before the other three fingers to make it more fitted.
