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.

Click on the charts to enlarge them.

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.

CO 62 sts
Join being careful not to twist
Knit Chart A

Knit Chart B 4 or 5 times depending on the length you want your gloves.
For Right hand glove, Knit Chart C
For Left hand glove, Knit Chart D

Note on Charts C and D, where the * appears, knit 9 sts onto waste yarn. Slip those 9 sts back onto the left needle. Knit those 9 sts normally.
