These gloves feature a contrast colored 2 x 2 ribbed cuff, and a sky blue or autumn gold ground, over which are staggered 3 colors of windmills. A provisional (waste yarn) thumb reduces knitting complexity and speeds the knitting.

The pattern contains charts for 2 colorways: winter and autumn and also features innovative charts, diagrams, tips and instructions for knitting gloves as well as web support. Web support includes a video demonstrating the use of a fingertip guide for colorwork and stepwise photos of glove fit and construction techniques.

Two needle sizes are recommended so that the stranded portions and single color portions have equivalent gauge.
