Remember how I unvented gloves with little bridges between the fingers? I was and still am very pleased with the result. So very much indeed that I found myself knitting another pair and another pair and another pair... Finally, I decided despite the fun I have knitting with Noro, that it is time now to have other knitters have there own go and for me to move on with some other knitting.

Kolenya? you ask Well, I thought it is only fair to give them a proper name, better than 'glottens'. On the picture to the right they reminded me so much of a deep-sea fish and hence browsing names for such species I stumbled across this.
Kolenya: Miwok name for coughing fish
Intrigued by the sort-of similiarity to Kureyon it had to be this one. But also the 'explanation' is worth it! More or less common is probably the name Miwok but what the heck is a coughing fish!? You may enlighten me if you can, but I also feel quite content relying on my imagination.
Kolenya is a very simple and fast knit and best of all a one skein project. Ideal to just try out Noro Kureyon (or Noro Silk Garden) or destash.
Eventhough the 'bridges' are crocheted, they do not require any skills. Why? Because I do not know how to crochet myself and just used a crochet hook for twisting and knotting the yarn in a way a knitting needle wouldn't do. In the end it is all about making a garment out of a single, long thread, isn't it?
Of course, this is a free pattern, meaning: feel free to send me your comments and suggestions and let me know about problems and mistakes.
It would be great if you leave me a comment when you are using the pattern, I would love to see your version. And who knows, maybe there will be a gallery one day.
Have fun and happy knitting!
