Wild fingers, bright colours, long life – who wouldn’t want to wear these great gloves? They have a unique construction that creates a very long life line as part of the thumb gusset. After working the thumb gusset, knit the thumb then move on to the rest of the hand and the fingers. Make a pair for your kids, your grandkids or yourself. Knit every finger a different colour if you want. Self-patterning or hand-painted yarns paired with a contrasting solid or semi-solid look great. How can you resist?
