|Colorway: Stained Glass|
Hello all! I have gotten a lot of very positive feedback on my pattern and that makes me so incredibly happy. My original pattern was based on my wrist size which is pretty small. So I thought a few changes would give a better fit. I also thought a foundation sc and the fp bp dc on the bottom would give better stretch. It certainly makes it easier to pull them on. Download pattern here.
