Fabulous fingerless gloves knit from only one ball of Andean Silk from Knitpicks, a wonderfully soft Alpaca, Silk, and Merino Wool blend yarn. The Vine Lace is easy to follow, creating a sophisticated and pretty look. A little bit of ribbing along the inner side of the gloves make them fit perfectly. A few decreases after the thumb opening is made ensures a great fit as well.
Quick to knit with no seams on double pointed needles. A great stash-busting knitting project as it only uses one skein and makes a terrific gift!

I broke my wrist two months ago; cold makes it painful so I decided to try this pattern. I enjoyed knitting but added markers between each repeat to make it less confusing. The next time I use this pattern I'll put a couple finishing rows of purl stitches and then bind-off in purl. People are asking me to "make a pair for me!"

I want to knit this for my dear friend Josie. She is a Jane Austen books lover and will be delighted, I'm sure!

The pattern is very well written. The finished gloves have a very attractive, sophisticated vibe, but without being impossible to knit.
