Free Pattern: Light and Lacy Windowpane Gloves

Image
  These fingerless gloves are the perfect compliment to the Windowpane Scarf and Hat . A light and lacy texture might not be ideal for playing in the snow, but it will beautifully accent any cool weather outfit while you warm up by the fire or snuggle up to a good book.   One size fits most, but see the notes about how to adjust the pattern for your own needs.

  The shape and style of this hat leaves plenty of room for lots of hair, but it still fits great no matter what shape or style hair you're sporting (or no hair at all, like Head, my model) .

Finished size: 22" (55.8cm) circumference, 7" (17.8cm) from brim to top center. Try one or two hook sizes smaller for a tighter fit. The pattern allows for stretching for a snug fit if you wish to make it smaller. Made with a larger hook like the scarf and fingerless gloves , it works up quickly and the pattern is pretty simple. Skill Level: Easy Materials: 1 - 14oz skein Red Heart Super Saver worsted weight acrylic yarn  *One 14 oz. skein will make the Windowpane Hat, Scarf , and Gloves , with leftovers.

  Sometimes acrylic yarns can be itchy and bulky to wear, but this pattern battles that issue with a lacy texture that drapes well. The scarf is long enough to be doubled over and worn in the keyhole fashion, but for warmer days, wear it as a light accessory to accent your outfit.   A large hook and a fast-working pattern will leave you time to make the matching hat and gloves , and still get out to enjoy the weather or relax by the fire. Finished size: 81" (205.7cm) long and 3 1/2 " (8.8cm) wide, with border.
