Inspired by Mrs. Fitz Knit Bits from Outlander, I designed these gauntlets by commission. Fully reversible hand-to-hand, with a 2 color cable motif and corrugated rib. Additional features include several 1 color Lateral Braids. Near elbow length. Knuckle rib is worked first, then the rest of the cuff is knit flat on a provisional cast-on and seamed together. Stitches are then picked up along one edge and the arm section is knit in the round seamlessly.
