These gloves were designed for Ewe Knit in Toronto, Canada.

The sample shown was made of Zen Yarn Garden’s Glitter Sock in custom colour OOAK, 2.EK.01. It was wonderful to work with. While I am not usually enamoured of variegated yarns, I found the subtle colour shifts in this rendition very pleasing; it also inspired the name of this pattern.

Labradorite is a shimmering, iridescent semi-precious stone. Rustic, yet elegant, in tones of grey and silver, often streaked with rust and flashes of blue or green.

Worked in the round from the upper cuff to the knuckles on dpns, these are an elegant and interesting, but not too challenging a knit.

A decorative lace panel travels along the outside edge of the arm continuing along the outer edge of the hand. The mock cable (photo tutorial included) runs along the inside of the arm and gives rise to the thumb gusset.

The mock cable can be worked in ribbing if you prefer.

Beads? The choice is yours, add them as you knit or, sew them on afterwards, or leave them off.
