The pattern called for stretch fabric which I totally didn't realize until I'd already cut out this faux suede cloth I picked up on clearance. After realizing my mistake, I attempted to make the gloves out of knit. And then dye them to match. We won't talk about that!
The third and final attempt was a success after cutting the fabric on the bias to get a little bit of stretch so the gloves fit like, well, a glove and not a mitten. The knit version was... roomy. Interestingly enough, the pattern size says S-M-L, but there's no difference in the width/length of the fingers! Only in the cuff width. Which is weird to say the very least.
