All the drama of the maple tree’s brilliant fall performance is captured here in an evening-length glove. The sleek and springy mohair-wool blend comes in a mouth-watering range of vibrant colours. Stay snug, elegant and dextrous while you type, text, or… what else? Oh, of course, knit!

The pattern is fully charted for both sizes and relies on the ability to read charts. The written instructions provide clarity to areas of the
pattern that cannot be completely communicated with the charts, such
as forming the picot edging and finishing the thumbs.

Special Techniques:

  • knitting in the round
  • stranded colourwork
  • picking up stitches along a cast-on edge
  • picking up stitches around the thumb opening
