These fingerless gloves will take you from slipped stitches to fair-isle stitches, having fun all the way. They can be worked either on double-pointed needles, or one long circular needle using the Magic Loop technique. The gloves begin at the cuff working through the mosaic stitches, then on to the the body of the glove and the gusset, which are worked with stranded knitting. The gusset is worked with directional increases.

Using four colors of worsted weight yarn, follow either pattern charts or line-by-line instructions. There are also video tutorials available for several of the techniques used.

The headband is worked with a 16” circular needle and is very straightforward to make - a great project for a fair-isle newbie!
