Pattern Description:

A great pattern to show off your favourite variegated yarn, as well as your prettiest buttons. The body of these gloves is knitted flat, with round knitting starting only just below the fingers. The upper 6 buttons are mock buttons. The lower buttons can be opened, making it easier to slip the gloves on and off. Or if you prefer, the pattern can also be done without buttons, with the flap sewn on.

This pattern provides detailed instructions (6 pages).
