NOTE: This pattern is written with instructions for a small and med/lg sized glove (larger size in parentheses). I have small hands so the 40sts worked well for me. If you find you would like more than the 44sts simply increase your stitch count by a multiple of 4. Place 2 of those stitches on needle 2 and 2sts on needle 3. Enjoy!
Materials: 1 Skein Kersti Merino Crepe (114yards/104meters)
Size US 6 (4.0mm) DPN set of 4
Darning Needle, and Stitch Holder/Waste Yarn
Herringbone Stitch Pattern:
Row1: *P1 . K1 (YO . Sl 1 stitch purl wise . K2 . PSSO 2knit sts) 3times . P1*
Row2: *P1 (K2 . Sl 2sts just worked back to left hand needle . Pass 3rd stitch over the 2sts just worked, and then pass the 2sts back to the right needle . YO) 3times . K1 . P1*
Repeat these two rows for pattern
CO 40(44)sts and divide as follows:
Needle 1: 16(16)sts
Needle 2: 12(14)sts
Needle 3: 12(14)sts

Now begin pattern as follows:
Needle 1: P2 . Work Herringbone Pattern . P2
Needle 2: P2 . K10(12)sts
Needle 3: K10(12)sts . P2
Keeping needles 2 and 3 the same for every row, work the herringbone pattern for 10 repeats (total of 20rows).
Work needle 1 in pattern and needle 2: P2 . K10(12)
For needle 3: K5(7) . slip the next 4sts onto a stitch holder or waste yarn and CO 4sts using the backward loop method. End K1 . P2
Continue in established pattern for 6 repeats (12 rows total).

Place the 4sts from the stitch holder/waste yarn onto a dpn. Pick up an additional 10sts from around the thumb hole and divide over 2 dpns. (14sts total)
Knit all stitches for 5 rows or desired length and BO.
CO for second glove, and work the same as the first glove until you finish the 10pattern repeat.
