The easiest, peasiest gloves you'll ever make.
These are so simple, you'll make a bunch! Here's why:
They’re made from the top down (fingers to elbow), so you can easily make them as long or short as you’d like.
You only use one stitch (well, two if you count the chain).
They’re very unisex, so they’re easy for gift-giving.
They’re made in the round, so no sewing and very little end-weaving.
They are infinitely customizable (edgings, appliques, color changes, yarn changes, etc.).

When your gloves are as long as you want them, join your last round, finish off, and weave in your ends. Depending on your tension, you may want to go even bigger – just add more chains at the start. I made mine 15 rounds long. Leave as is, or add an applique or edging.
