experience with twisted stitches and stranded colorwork
These pretty fingerless gloves feature a two-colour slipped stitch pattern accented by columns of miniature twisted cables. They are intended to be close-fitting without restricting finger movement. The pattern creates a stretchy fabric so the gloves will suit a variety of hand sizes. The pattern includes both written instructions and stitch pattern charts.
Note: The pattern calls for 2.5 mm needles, which are sold in the United States as either US 1 or US 1.5 needles. The smaller US size is preferable unless larger gloves are desired.
7 stitches = 1 inch in stockinette
