Like a bird rolling around in updrafts, the Gliding Birds patterns play with cables and eyelets. Worked from the bottom up with both a tubular cast-on and bind-off, these mitts feature an easy-to-remember swirling pattern on the top of the hand and a cable on the wrist.

Tel un oiseau tournoyant dans les courants ascendants, Gliding Birds joue avec les torsades et la dentelle. Tricoté de bas en haut, le bonnet Gliding Birds inclut des côtes torsadées qui se développent en un motif tourbillonnant facile à retenir. Sa forme slouchy est mise en avant par des diminutions permettant au motif de former une étoile sur le haut du bonnet.
