One ball of Andean Silk from Knitpicks, a wonderfully soft Alpaca, Silk, and Merino Wool blend yarn, and a little time will earn you these fabulous cabled fingerless gloves! Perfect for keeping your hands warm when typing, driving, knitting, or just hanging out.
A striking and fun-to-knit clustered braid cable adorns the top of each glove. The palm side of the gloves is all in 1 x 1 ribbing for a great fit. A few decreases above the thumb hole create a nice fit at the top.
This completely seamless project is knit entirely on double pointed needles.
Make it in just a few sittings! A great, luxurious gift item to make in your recipients favorite color.
