These colourful gloves feature a network of stitches around the knuckles while the wide side gusset offers a roomy fit for lots of mobility. The colour flows unbroken from the gusset to the tip of the thumb, which you complete before the entrelac panel starts. For an even sharper contrast, work the entrelac panel from the other end of the ball.

This knitting pattern includes written directions and thoughtful details.

Substitution Notes
The original yarn is a sport weight sock yarn. It has a long and slow colour gradient. Ombré and gradient yarns would be a perfect substitute for a similar look. Solid coloured yarns may also be used and you could have some fun stash diving for the entrelac section.

Techniques
Knitting in the round, increases/decreases, working entrelac from written instructions, picking up stitches.
