An original Art Nouveau colorwork pattern is paired with gradient color changes for a whimsical pair of fingerless gloves, perfect for Autumn or Spring. The dreamy aqua colors invite you to imagine the moon setting in a wooded glen, behind dark branches. These gloves can be made as a matching set with the “Coucher du Soleil” hat. There is enough yardage in one Frabjous Fibers gradient kit for both projects.

Pattern is written for one size.
Finished dimensions: Approx. 3.5” wide at wrist/arm, 4.25” wide at widest part of thumb, and 9.25” long (after blocking)

Pattern uses a gradient mini-skein set paired with a darker contrast color. Alternately, you could use a long-gradient single skein as the main color.

Includes written directions and chart for color pattern.

Colorwork chart has some long sections where the unused yarn is carried along the back of the work. For a neater finish, I recommend using a two-handed fair isle method and weaving every other stitch along the back of the work.
