These lightweight gloves add a nice feminine touch to your winter wardrobe. Beads and lace on the front create a decorative effect, while the wool yarn keeps your hands warm in the cold. Perfect for your morning bicycle commute, ice-skating, or an evening out.

204 (250, 304, 334) seed beads (red gloves shown use size 6/0 beads)

Pattern includes CHARTED directions for lace insert, with a custom set of charts for each of the four sizes offered. Line by line (written) instructions for the lace insert are not included at this time.
NOTE: A version of this pattern also appears in Stitch’n’Bitch Superstar Knitting. The two patterns are similar, but not the same. The book version of the pattern is knit to a larger gauge with 4 ply yarn, while the stand-alone pattern is knit with a laceweight yarn.
Updates I’ve had several comments about the fingers in the pattern being too short and have lengthened them accordingly. PDFs purchased/downloaded after March 2011 reflect this change.
