Discontinued. This digital pattern is no longer available online.

The row and stitch gauge combination of twisted rib produces elegant, natural oblique angles across the arm and hand, accented with picot castons and bindoffs. Mitered yarnover increases form a lacey line along the outer arm, and twisted double decreases both create a visual detail at the inner wrist and shape the thumb.

Worked beginning with a few stitches at the outer wrist and ending around the index finger, they require no sewing or other finishing.

Skill level: Intermediate. The unusual construction method may be challenging for some knitters; please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need additional explanation. I am committed to providing quality pattern support.

This pattern is worked partially in rows and partially in the round (using whatever method you prefer for small-diameter knitting in the round). Both knitting and purling through the back loop are required.
