Pattern Description:

Char is a classic-looking glove designed for maximum durability. Sock yarn and a textured slip stitch pattern create a strong fabric that remains sophisticated enough for daily wear. They're visually attractive without being too ornamental, and the slip stitch pattern is the perfect showcase for hand-dyed yarns.

A braided rib cuff keeps wrists snug and warm, while the left and right hands are worked differently for the best fit possible. Simple but engaging stitch patterns and clear instructions make this a very accessible pattern.
