A garter cable ribbed pair of mitts knit in a luxurious blend of merino and silk. Leaf detailing is featured on the back of the hand and provides the thumb gusset shaping.
This is one of the patterns in my Smart Thumb series of fingerless gloves. This pattern offers a lovely variant on the usual thumb shaping.
The fingers must be educated, the thumb is born knowing. ~Marc Chagall
