These simple, cosy linen stitch gloves make the perfect gift for winter. Knit from the fingers down, a woven effect is easily created in a cosy and stretchy fabric. Slipped stitches provide a useful recipe for breaking up variegated yarn, while the regular stitch provides an elegant design for both men and women.

Small - 16cm 6.25” around knuckles

The slipped stitches of linen stitch can also be useful for breaking up variegated yarn. It is suggested that you work from a single colour if using variegated yarn.

Yarn suggestions:
• Colour A: Bendigo Woollen Mills Rustic 8 Ply in ‘Earth’ colourway
• Colour B: Bendigo Woollen Mills Alpaca Rich in ‘Rich Grey’ colourway
• Cascade 220 in Walnut and Wheat - although not DK, provides a similar effect
