After making the basketweave sweater last week, I was still a little obsessed with the basket weave stitch, so I decided to play around with fingerless gloves and beanie pattern. These were worked up with Loops and Threads Barcelona again (there was an awesome sale).
If you want a printable PDF of this pattern you find it in my Etsy store.
The beanie hat unstretched circumference is 19″ (48 cm), and it will fit up to 23″ (59 cm).
The slouchy hat unstretched circumference is 20″ (51 cm) and will fit up to 23″ (59 cm) head and it is 10″ (26 cm) long.
The fingerless gloves are 8 3/4″ long (22 cm), 4 1/2″ wide (11 cm), the thumb hole is 1 3/4″ (4.5 cm) down from the top of the glove and is 1″ (3cm) long.
