Fagales are an order of flowering plants, including the beech and birch trees. Both the beech and the birch are found in many places in Scandinavia, and both trees have beautiful ribbed leaves. The ribbed leaves are found on these fingerless gloves, both on the top and as a beautiful little detail on the thumb.
The stitch patterns are shown in the charts.
