This pattern was the first that I ever wrote and published. The gloves are worked from the cuff upwards with a side gusset for the thumb. The gloves extend higher up on the fingers than most fingerless mitts for extra warmth. There are seven colors in the original project, but I’ve seen some stunning versions using only two colors.

The instructions are written for two circular needles, but can easily be adapted to DPNs, since the pattern is mostly chart-based. There are color and symbol charts on the blog and in the PDF, with written instructions for relevant rounds. The left and right glove are given separate charts so you don’t have to read one backwards to make the mirror image!

1/27/10- Fixed chart key so that A2 and A3 read correctly. Added separate instructions for the right glove. Changed numbers on the bottom of the charts to read correctly right-left. Fixed Round 54’s written instructions to match the charts.
