Designed for the Fingerless Gloves Fanatics Group for the September Mystery KAL. The pattern has been updated and combined into one complete pattern as opposed to three separate clues.

The versatile design has a little bit of easy cables, and some more challenging lace work. There are four possible variations, firstly you will get to choose between making a wrist or mid-arm length glove. Then at the end you will also be able to choose between completely fingerless and half finger gloves.

This glove is fitted and has some negative ease (~1”) to allow the lace to open up when worn. Additional sizes can be achieved by changing needle sizes.

Advice on yarn choice: Using a semi or completely solid yarn will let the stitch pattern do all the talking while a variegated yarn will let the stitch pattern show off the colours. I don’t think a self striping or variegated yarn with long colour repeats would work very well with this pattern.
