I searched a long time for a suitable boy’s pattern for my pre-teenage son. As you have probably already guessed, I couldn’t find any. Instead of knitting up a plain ole’ uni-sex glove I decided to put on my thinking hat and come up with a pattern myself. So without further due, I present to you Arachnid.

Arachnid has extensible fingers and thumbs to keep them warm while riding home from school on a bike or waiting around at a bus stop. By simply folding them down, they free them up for texting, counting coins, etc….
Because of the stretchy nature of the ribbing, Arachnid is sized for pre-teens to adults. Arachnid junior is available for smaller sizes.

The Huntsman hat is the perfect match for these mitts!
