Notes

The first picture is most true to color.

I made these for my DIL. Since she has very small hands I used the instructions for child size and made these additional changes:

  • All knit stitches are knitted through the back-loop.

  • I did the thumb gusset increases until I had 44 stitches and bound off 12 stitches for the thumb.

  • For additional sparkle and pizazz I added the Trendsetter Yarn Metal to the cuff.
