Ribbony Glovelettes

I had some gorgeous ribbon yarn that my mom had given me (love you Mom!).  It was too pretty to make into anything but a pair of fingerless gloves. 



Here's how you make them:

Materials:
-Size US 13 straight knitting needles
-Ribbon yarn
-Scissors

Glovelettes (make 2):
Cast on 20 sts.
Work in k1, p1 rib for 5 rows.
Row 6:  * yo, k2tog * repeat from * to end
Row 7:  Purl all sts.
Row 8:  * k2tog, yo * repeat from * to end
Row 9:  Purl all sts.
Repeat these 4 rows until work measures approx. 6 inches from beginning (or desired length).
Work in k1, p1 rib for 5 more rows.
Cast off all sts.

Finishing:
Cut 5 (or desired number) six-inch pieces of ribbon.  Use them to tie the sides (the ones that aren't ribbed) together in pretty bows.  Enjoy your pretty new glovelettes!
