From Nancy Bush’s Pattern IntroductionThese fanciful gloves were inspired by a pair my dear friend, Anu Kaljurand, received from her parents for Christmas when she was studying in Utah. They are a fine example of the wonderful surprises found in Estonian knitting. The top of the hand is fun and interesting--turn the hand over and the shock of stripes will make you smile! They begin with a double-start cast-on, followed right away by a two-color vikkel braid. After a bit more knitting, another vikkel braid is worked.
