Description
The painterly quality of these gloves comes from working with two colors on most rows, then, when a color change is called for, changing only one color at a time to create subtle color blending. Make the gloves with a plain cuff or with the I-cord cuffs. Both pairs are worked in the round, with no shaping (nothing to distract you from concentrating on your colorwork), from cuff to fingers, with time taken out for the thumb.
