A cute friend of mine went on a trip to France last month and was so SWEET to think of me and bring me back a skein of beautiful pink Adriafil yarn. She is just the best!!!
I wish I would have thought to take a lovely picture of the yarn before I started crocheting, but I was already started late at night and remembered to take the picture right where I was. The lighting isn’t perfect, but you get it, right?
When she gave me this yarn, I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it. About a month or so ago, Brenna, from Crochet 539, posted that she had designed a pair of fingerless gloves that looked perfect for Arizona cool, but not too cold, mornings.
I got out my hook and crocheted away. I only had one or two questions with the instructions, but I managed to crochet up a glove that looked pretty much like Brenna’s. I made a few errors but seemed to be able to fix them as I went. The main problem was that the one small skein of yarn only made up one glove. Oh no!
Well, I never let a hitch in the road stop me:). Since I couldn’t just run over to France and buy another skein of yarn, I looked through my stash and found a green that I think made the gloves even better than if they would have been if they were the same color.
But pictures can be a bit deceiving. Because I used two different yarns and the weight was different, they are two different sizes! Lol :)!
I knew they were different weights when I started so I tried to adjust by decreasing the starting stitches which made the green glove skinnier. I also decreased the number of rounds and tried to compare and measure as I went, but the green still ended up longer. No one is perfect and especially not me!
But when I put them on, I really don’t think you can tell that they are two different sizes. And I think that adding that pink stripe to the green glove really ties them both together. All in all, they are a hit! I really like them:)❤️❤️❤️
Thank you for a fun pattern Brenna! It is a super SWEET day!
