I launched this pattern at my local Skipton show, Yarndale 2019 and they fitted everyone who tried it on!

They are knitted flat in rows.

My design ideas and advice: I designed the pattern that I’m sharing with you today, the Tavistock Gloves, because a super lovely knitting beginner, who I helped her knit her first pair of socks, wanted to knit gloves….but on two needles (even though she totally bossed knitting on dpns!) so I designed these for her.

It took me a while because the last time I wore hand knitted gloves they were were fingerless ones when I was a teenager but I had designed Frankie Fingerless mittens so I used a combination of memory and the Frankie pattern to get these right.
