Snowflakes and frost cover every inch of the ground of cold winter mornings. Even with the sun peeking through the clouds, the air is brisk and calls for something warm to cover your hands on a wintry outing. What could be better than a pair of elegant hand-knit gloves? The Birch Gloves are the perfect solution.
The cuff and glove are knit separately and seamed together with a 4-st I-cord. Both the cuff and the glove are knit in the round from the bottom-up. In this pattern, all slipped stitches are worked purlwise with yarn held in back.
