{pattern} ombre fingerless gloves

ombre_gloves1

It’s been a year since I last published a new pattern. Recently I’ve been inspired and experimenting with fair-isle. I love the look of the subtle colour patterns, but I hated all of the yarn switching and stranding. Instead I worked on a few mock fair-isle pieces which I am so excited about.

Of course, since fingerless gloves are my favourite all-season accessory, this first piece just had to be a pair of gloves!
