Flair for Early Fall

As we move into the upcoming cooler days, a bit of lightweight fashion is a must for the hands.  Fingerless gloves, or gauntlets are usually more for warmth, but don’t have to be.  Here, we have used Buckingham, a fingering weight baby alpaca/ silk blend which is perfect for these lacey look feminine gauntlets.

Check out the soft palette of colors in Buckingham- from the Bristol Yarn Gallery Collection and Plymouth Yarn.

    Hi there,
    Lovely pattern, thanks for sharing.

    Just a suggestion, you might want to add ‘ssk’ to the abbreviations noted. I just noticed it is the only one not explained.

    Thanks again!

    Ssk stands for slip, slip, knit. If you would like to see how to do it step by step, here’s a wiki tutorial. Thanks for your comment and choosing Plymouth Yarns.
