Welcome to November, and the colder weather is here!  We're seeing nights drop below 0 C here in Southern Ontario, which means it's definitely time for gloves! 

 Which is why I'm happy to say that this month's Featured Pattern and Knit Along is the
Pine Cone Gloves
!   And for those of you who don't already have the pattern, it's 50% off for the month of November!

These gloves came about as, and I quote: “the hand knit version of the nylon gloves you can find in a dollar store.”

I wanted a pair of gloves that were lightweight, but very snug to the hand, perfect for spring or early fall, or, to layer under other mittens or gloves during winter. 

The Pine Cone Stitch pattern uses only knits and purls to create a fun, textured stitch that I instantly fell in love with!  So it seemed only natural to put these two ideas together to knit up a pair of lightweight gloves in fingering-weight yarn.

Sample was knit in two skeins of *Knit Picks Twill Fingering in "Patchwork Heather" and is shown in size XS.  

You can buy the pattern through Etsy,  in my Web Shop, or, on my (new!) Patreon Shop, the discount is available on all platforms. (Psst, Featured Pattern Subscribers and above on Patreon can just download the pattern for free from the Patreon Shop!)

 Now, onto the Knit-Along!
