Hidden Heart Gloves

PicMonkey Collage Hidden Heart Gloves

Not only are these gloves all business in the front, party in the back but they are also super quick and easy to make. So much so that this was both my first real go at writing my own pattern – go easy on me here guys – and my first real go at changing yarn without needing to fasten off…I (g)love how they have turned out *groan*

I am a sucker for navy blue and red together and may have a mild obsession with creating fingerless gloves at the moment – there’s something very satisfying about a quick project, toasty warm hands and fingers free for Tweeting!
