Quick Fingerless Gloves

This pattern is very basic, a little bit of 2 by 2 ribbing for the wrist, straight stitch body of glove topped with a simple yarn over edge. The thumb stitches are knit onto scrap yarn and worked after the rest of the glove. Both gloves are done the same.
The ribbon in this yarn gives them a bit of sparkle. The bulky yarn makes this a very quick knit.
