This beautiful silvery-blue yarn made me think of starlight and of the Evenstar of her people so I made these long, fingerless, cabled gloves inspired by Arwen as I imagine her from the Lord of the Rings books.

Gloves are sized to fit my more ‘traditionally built’ arms (my wrist is 21 cm around). For smaller or larger gloves go up or down 1 or 2 needles sizes. Length to wrist is approx 12 cm.

The thumb is made using Elizabeth Zimmerman’s ‘thumb trick’. For more information see EZ’s Knitter’s Almanac or photo tutorial at http://tinyurl.com/yu8w84
