This one-skein pattern, designed for our 2008 LYS Tour, became a fast favorite. Wear them when knitting outdoors on a chilly day. Or layer them over your fine leather gloves when the temperature drops. Live in a temperate zone? Choose a cooler yarn and theyโ€™re all about style.

These gloves are lovely in virtually any dk-weight yarn. The Rowan Baby Alpaca has a slightly tailored, dressier look. If you use Manos Silk Blend, you can get three gloves from one skein so two skeins make three pairsโ€”one for you and two for gifts!

Once youโ€™ve knitted a pair, youโ€™ll see how easy it is to tweak
the size. Just keep the thumb gusset numbers intact and add or subtract stitches at the side.

Now get creative: Work the cuffs in another color or a different yarn (great for using up leftovers). Add stitch details or embroidery to the back of the hand. Add buttonsโ€”one per welt, one every other welt, or just one great button on each cuff. How about little pom-poms? Or ribbons? Have some fun!
