Danni and Charlie do craft

Two ladies and a whole lotta wool

Free-style Fair Isle glove (on the round)

For my next project I decided I needed to get back to Fair Isle. It’s a while since the course I did at Loop London, so wanted to make sure I still remembered.

I also wanted to create a fingerless glove pattern that worked on the round. This took some serious thought, especially knitting the thumb. Wows, sometimes knitting maths is confusing.

Anyway, here’s what I ended up with:



I did use a double-pointed needle in order to hold the stitches while I shaped the thumb:



I could definitely work some more Fair Isle into this pattern, just need to remember to add enough stitches for these bits as there’s not as much give in these parts.

Now to make the second glove!

About thisischarlie

I'm Charlie Parker, one half of the craft duo Danni and Charlie do craft. I love crafting in all its guises, from baking to knitting to growing vegetables (which most definitely IS a craft). I am all about local - local wool, local shops, local communities. I am a novice drawer and doodler, my plan is to be better and do my own illustration zine and then hit the road with my wool and bearded Canadian. These are my dreams. Thank you for visiting my blogs.
