Knit some gloves for Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog!
Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog was one of the most entertaining Internet sensations I have ever seen! A Joss Whedon production, it featured a cast considered the coolest of the cool among the gamer/sci-fi community. Dr. Horrible keeps a video blog where he laments his exclusion from a group of evil villains, vents his frustrations with the “good guy” Captain Hammer, and chronicles Dr. Horrible’s attempts to get the beautiful and kind Penny to notice him. These gloves were created based on what Penny wore on her date with Captain Hammer. Knit flat, they feature a nice stretchy seed stitch at the top and bottom. Buttons make a cute accent on the front. Make these in the muted earth tones featured, or spice them up with bright colors and buttons!

Size: One size
Finished Measurements: 93/4” (25 cm) long and 9” (23 cm) wide

Gauge: 20 stitches and 32 rows = 4” (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch on size 4 (3.5 mm) needles

Special Instructions: Make Two (M2): Insert left needle from front to back into vertical bar before next st. Knit in back and front of this loop.
