Bilbo may return to the Shire as a well-traveled warrior, but in his heart he will always be a hobbit. These fingerless gloves are just like our hero – humble, homespun, with just a hint of wanderlust. Perfect for pipe smoking outside the hobbit hole with an old friend! The pattern is worked from the wrist-cuff up to the fingers and is entirely seamless.
The sizing on this pattern span from a small woman up to a large man. Make sure you check your palm measurement to ensure you are casting on for the right size! This unisex pattern looks just as great on a man as it does on a woman.
