Introduction

I wanted to design some ladylike, lacy gloves that would still be warm for springtime weather. Since it's currently snowing here, it's unlikely that I'll be wearing these anytime soon but here's the pattern anyway!

Materials List

3mm hook

Fingering/4ply yarn.

I used a 3mm hook and a cashmere/wool mix yarn (ColourMart 2/15NM in Natural). It's lovely and warm but very soft.

Finished Size

M

Gauge

9sc per inch

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc across - 8 sc
