Another upcycling project: a quick and easy pair of fingerless gloves of which one can never have enough, methinks!
I used a large-ish size lambswool knit from a charity shop which I simply washed at 60 degrees (the colours ran of course, do be careful when you try this at home!). The sleeves I made into these elbow-length fingerless gloves which I embellished with some tricot leaves and a cute botton. Et voila!
100% lambswool charity shop knit; 2 bottons, scraps of tricot.
Pattern of the Week
