Note: Lace and rib pattern is very stretchy: gauntlets should fit most adult hands.

Pattern notes
Combining 1x1 rib with graphic horseshoe lace, these gauntlets are worked from the bottom up. Starting with a stretchy cast-on, a few rounds of rib are worked, followed by several repeats of the four-shade horseshoe lace pattern. Working the wrist on a below gauge-size needle ensures the lace fits snugly, before the hand and thumb opening are
added in 1x1 rib.
