Ripple Gloves

Hi, just thought I would show all you lovely ripplers the fingerless ripple gloves I made up for my friend Zoe for Christmas.

Made from 3 colours of Cascade 220, worsted and a 4.25mm hook, I basically just did a 32 (+2) chain swatch of Susan B.'s Ripple pattern (link on the sidebar), and sewed up the sides leaving a hole for the thumb. They were really quick too, I finished both in one night.

They turned out ok I think. I am going to make a matching ripple scarf to go with them.

Let me know what you think!

And check out my blog if you like Gauze Celebre.

I really love the gloves! Were they difficult to make?

Thanks Jan! They were actually really easy.

Chain 32+2 - then follow SusanB's Easy Ripple pattern, alternating colours for 12 rows.

Then fold in half and use the stray ends to sew the color edges together, leaving room (about 5 rows) for the thumbs.

You should probably work out the hole for the thumb by modelling on your own hand, mine are quite wide so needed a big hole.

Sew in all ends and repeat for a 2nd glove.

I would love to see pics if anyone tries it... :)

What a great idea and they turned out so nice.

Emma Apple:
Thanks so much for the pattern. Sounds like a fun thing to make up over Christmas break (after I finish up the last of the gifts)!

What a clever idea! I love anything ripple, and just might try a pair. Thanks!
