Twisted Gloves

These fabulous gloves have detailing that appears intricate but is simple to work up.  The wrist ribbing is done in my favorite mock cable rib to hug the glove to your arm and keep the cold out.  The back of the hand has a twisted cable with a purl background to keep things interesting while you knit the body of the glove.  The pattern includes an easy-to-read chart for the cable.  Designed with Schaefer Yarn's Heather, these gloves will add luxury, warmth, and function to your winter!
