Highland Gauntlets

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

18 sts + 16 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Highland Gauntlets Reviewed by Isabel Stone on 2012-11-27 *****
Made these in Olive. Thanks to the reviews, I was cautious to do the thumb increases so the seams would "mirror".
I increased the cast on, because my arms are chubby near the elbow, and then decreased to the pattern count as I approached the wrist section. Worked out perfectly.
This yarn is so great to work with, and the colors are incredible!
