You’ll need just a skein of this sumptuous silk-wool blend, along with a few hours, to make this beautifully functional gift. A simple spike stitch accentuates the rich colors of this kettle-dyed yarn and provides stretch to fit a range of hands. They’re great for outdoors, leaving your hands free for picking apples or throwing leaves, and they’re stylish enough to make for friends toiling away in cold offices.
