This pattern was designed for the launch of Hazel Knits Yarns at Bobbin’s Nest Studio in Santa Clara, CA during Stitches West 2008.
My Cuban grandmother was a wonder with a crochet hook. The intricate lace she could make was simply amazing. Though she taught me to crochet, I never quite took to it. Many years later, I picked up knitting needles and found my true crafting love. These gauntlets are named Violeta because the color reminds me of all the violets that filled her house and the patterning is in the same spirit as her beautiful lace.
There is one small error in the current pattern. When working the thumb section on the RS the last st should be a sl1wyf, instead of a sl1. You’ll need the yarn in front so that you can knit that first st when you turn for the WS.
