Pattern is for a pair of fitted fingerless gloves that are knit in the round, including some lovely button loop detail at the wrist.
Pattern covers a short length option in sizes Small/Medium/Large/Extra Large fits 7/7.5/8/8.5 inches around the hand. Yarn requirements are 180/190/215/225 yards respectively.
Pattern also offers an elbow-length option in the same sizes and requires 340/360/390/410 yards respectively.
This design arose from a collaboration between Kim of Indigodragonfly.ca yarns who supplied the yarn, and Karen of Shallweknit.com in Waterloo, Ontario who donated kits to the November 2012 Knot Hysteria retreat. Kits were supplied in two colourways found for a limited time exclusively at Shall We Knit?: "Stick Out Your Tongue and Say Mine!" (blues) and "Shall We Tint?" (oranges).
Any lovely wool or wool-blend fingering weight yarn would work equally well.
