This is a pair of fine-gauge, elaborate stranded colorwork gloves inspired by the bright tile ceiling in the atrium of the Guardian Building in Detroit. The knitted version is simplified substantially from its namesake, but shares its bright color scheme and its bold diamonds-inside-diamonds pattern.

Skills required are: provisional cast-on, I-cord, picking up and knitting stitches, stranded colorwork with three colors at once, working a yarn over, knitting through the back loop, decreasing with k2tog and k3tog, and embroidering with duplicate stitch.

The colors used in the sample are Jay, Sweet Potato, Safflower, Clover, and Pimento.
