Pink and Black Knucks

I recently completed this pair of knucks for a custom order. A friend's sister wanted a pair in a soft pink and black mixture and this is what I made.

Knucks are basically gloves whose fingers stop at the first KNUCKle. A mitten flap is attached to the back of the hand so that it can be closed over top the finger tips to keep warm, or pulled back to allow the wearer to use their fingers to type, or find change, or flip someone off more effectively, its all up to the user ;)

I am currently finishing up a pair of these in a much larger size that are lined on the insides to provide even more warmth for a male friend with hands twice the size of mine, I'll post pictures when they are complete. Can you tell these are being knit in a green color? Hehe

Those gloves are so cute :::jealous:::

I have tried but for the life of me I cannot get the hang of using double-pointed needles. So I've never been able to complete a pair of gloves with fingers.
