Design Your Own Gloves

Make beautiful gloves, gauntlets, fingerless gloves, wristlets

(BGC-Sept)

In this class, taught by Nora Bellows at Knits and Pieces of Annapolis, students will use Nora's basic fingerless glove pattern as a canvas to explore their own creativity in developing their own unique gloves.

In addition to learning some color theory to use in color striping, students will learn how to use intricate stitch patterns and designs to create one-of-a-kind gloves - gloves without fingers, with thumb holes or without, with fingers, half-fingers, wristlets.

Students will leave the class with many pairs of gloves that are totally unique, testaments to their own creativity.
