The Vintage Button Gloves pattern is also available in Whimsical Little Knits 3 which comes with instant ebook access.

Long, elegant gloves with a simple twisted stitch cable pattern that follows the taper of the wrist. Closely spaced buttons down the outside of each cuff are inspired by vintage kid gloves, but since knitting is so much stretchier this version is much more practical. The buttons are purely decorative, no fussing with making buttonholes or fastening
so many. It’s the perfect opportunity to use delicate mother of pearl buttons, try using mismatched ones for a slightly quirky effect if you don’t have a set of twenty four. Big bags of random mother of pearl buttons are among the many things I find almost impossible to resist in antique shops.

The Vintage Button Gloves pattern was first published in St-Denis Magazine Fall/ Winter 2009, and the St-Denis yarn was too perfectly vintage in style to change it.
