Five 25g balls of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift were used: 2 balls in the (dark) background color, and 1 in each of the other 3 colors.
2 - 25g balls of A = Shetland Black #101
1 - 25g ball of B = Eucalyptus #794
1 - 25g ball of C = Chartreuse #365
1 - 25g ball of D = Ginger #462
2 – 25g balls of A = Mulberry #598
1 – 25g ball of B = Chartreuse #365
1 – 25g ball of C = Orchid #547
1 – 25g ball of D = Rouge #563
Compare the cuffs on the two colorways and you’ll see there’s a tiny bit of optional duplicate stitch embroidery done on Colorway #2.
You’ll find the pattern includes charts and text for each finger.
These gloves are switchable, i.e., you can wear either one on either hand. But, to place the motifs symmetrically on each side, we adjust for the varying finger widths by sneaking some extra stitches in along the sidelines. So, it’s still important that you make one “right” glove, one “left” glove…NOT two of the same!
