The first time I touched Bare Naked Wools ‘Confection’ I knew two things: 1) I wanted to wrap myself in the yarn and 2) it would be a dream to knit. The natural colours of the yarn made choosing just one difficult so I selected two shades of grey and the natural, figuring I’d come up with a pattern later. After finishing the cowl and hat, there was still a generous amount of yarn left and I designed these fingerless gloves with a gusseted thumb. The main lace pattern is used on the cuffs with a decorative element used on the back of the hands.

Pattern is 7 pages.
