These mid-arm length fingerless gloves will warm even the most stubborn hands. They feature a maze of intertwining cables on a background of reverse stockinette. A semi-solid color yarn with great stitch definition shows the cables off to best advantage.

The name of this design was inspired by the resonator guitar appearing in the photos. This particular guitar is a family treasure passed down to my husband. Resonator guitars are showpieces of the acoustic world, thanks to their shiny facade and clear tones. These gloves capture the same crispness and flair in their intricate cables.
