Refined gloves inspired by the warm colors and patterns of the American Southwest.

Materials
Suripaco Springvale (55% alpaca, 30% wool, 15% silk; 208 yards/49g) 1 skein each “Natural,” (MC) “Cranberry,” (CC1) and “Camel” (CC2)

Note: very little of the two contract colors is used. With the three skeins listed above, I was able to make three pairs of gloves, each in a different MC.

Gauge
32 stitches & 28 rows = 4” in stranded stockinette using larger needles
32 stitches & 40 rows = 4” in rib pattern, slightly stretched, using smaller needles

Needles
Two sets double-pointed needles (or your preferred method of knitting in the round) in size needed to obtain gauge
Suggested needle sizes: US 2 (2.75 mm), US 3 (3.25mm)

Finished Size
7” hand circumference, 9.25” long from cast-on edge to fingertips

Tools
Stitch markers, blunt tapestry needle, waste yarn.
