These light, lacy fingerless gloves are the perfect knit accessory to pull on when you don’t have to worry about the weather. They add a subtle touch of vintage glamour without being over the top, and they’re fun to knit. Each glove starts with an i-cord that’s sewn to make a button loop and becomes the wrist strap. Stitches are picked up from the i-cord and the glove is knit in the round until it’s time to add the scalloped edging. The edging is worked sideways and acts as the bind off for the top of the glove.
