I love mushroom-hunting by the sea. Memories of autumn leaves, a light breeze, chanterelles, candy caps, the soft forest floor combine to create these fingerless gloves.

The Enchanted Forest Fingerless Gloves consist of three bands of knitted leaves with a 4 inch cuff and decorative buttons. They are one-size-fits-most, and measure 10 inches around the hand and 7 inches around the wrist.

Intermediate pattern: lace leaves, knitting in the round.

Three different colored yarns, but used one at a time. One skein of each, unless you are making larger/longer gloves.

I used 3mm needles in order to better define the leaves. If you want to make larger gloves, use 4mm needles per the KnitPicks label information.

Decorative buttons are optional.
