2 needle fingerless gloves

I wanted to make my sister a pair of Fetching fingerless gloves for Christmas, but I absolutely loathe small circumference circular knitting. So.....I modified the pattern to be worked on two needles.

This is what you get when you mate Fetching with this pattern from Purl Bee:

Please let me know if this pattern doesn't make sense, it's my first time writing out a pattern.
