Special thank you to Karen (Lykkefanten on Ravelry) for letting me use her R chart.

Using sliver/bronze yarn, duplicate stitch R chart onto the stockinette section.
Feel free to do chart in intarsia instead of duplicate stitch and to adjust pattern to fit your wrist better or change the size of yarn.

Quidditch Gloves

Warning-This pattern has not been tested and has been tweaked slightly since I knit it. This is the first pattern I have written. I started writing it yesterday around 11 PM. So, I guarantee it has mistakes somewhere. I knit mine out of fingering weight yarn on US size 0 needles, but I knit loosely, so that is about a 1 or 1 1/2 for "normal" knitters. Due to the ribbing, it should fit just about anyone if done in a fingering or sport weight yarn on a size 1 to 3 US.

If you are knitting this for the Ravenclaw Quidditch team you can either knit the entire pattern in a variegated yarn that contains both house colors or knit chart A in silver/bronze and all other charts in blue.
