Rainbow Gloves Pattern

As an update to the rainbow gloves I have now completed the pattern.  You can view the original post here.

Worked out so the rainbow pattern spreads evenly over 60 rows.  Follow pattern without colour changes for a basic fingerless glove. Make two.

One skein of each colour to the rainbow.  Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple.  I used Red Heart soft yarn (gauge:17st x 23r = 4in(10cm) on size US 8/5mm needles)

K - knit

 knit 1 stitch in the front, then in the back
