Kyle’s Fingerless Gloves

Brand new pattern alert! If you’ve been following along on youtube then you know I’ve been busy teaching Kyle Cassidy how to knit! Since we’ve been stuck at home and our trip to Iceland got delayed, we thought it would be really cool if Kyle learned how to knit before we got there. Which means you get a free pattern! I wanted to design something very simple that would teach Kyle how to knit in the round, increase, and cast on in a row. Then added a cable just to make it fun.

Please enjoy the pattern!
