One Hand Clapping

1 G

This is my first attempt at writing a pattern for anyone other than myself. Even when I’ve attempted writing for myself the results were nil. Pattern writing is no joke! I sweat, shake, rip pages, hair, say bad words, then, worse words and give up. For the longest time it’s been no problem to look at a thing and make it. But write how it’s made! Oh, that IS a problem. With that said, please feel free to ask questions if you have difficulty reading what I have written. Please help me improve.

These gauntlets are a rip-off ish. There, I admit it! A woman on Facebook posted a pic, asking if anyone knew where she could find the pattern. No one knew. However, I knew I could make a reasonable facsimile. Which presented the pattern dilemma.


Notions:  Zarina Merino Extrafine Baby Yarn, first color, 2 – 50 gram balls 1715. Second color can be scraps. Or any Extra-fine or Baby weight yarn will work.
