This pattern is part of Lost in the Woods - a collection of 12 patterns by three designers – 6 garments, 6 accessories – inspired by the forests we love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Autumn’s slanted light brings out the forest’s glowing colours, even before the leaves turn, and the woods are more inviting than ever – but if you want to forage in the chilly season, it’s time to slip on some gloves.

Stranded colourwork echoes these woodsy shades and provides maximum warmth;the thumb gusset increases are carefully incorporated into the stitch pattern, while the long wrists ensure no draughty gaps under your coat.
