This knitting pattern is for women’s gloves decorated with two different patterns. Knitted in luxurious blend of Baby Alpaca, Merino and silk, these are a lovely way to keeps hands toasty this winter.
The Cockleshell pattern is available as gloves or handwarmers. Designed to use up the remainder of the skein from the Cockleshell Gloves as an alternative, additional pattern, the Silver Bell gloves are available in the smaller size only because the lace pattern on the back would not look so good with the extra 2 stitch stitches either side of it in the larger size. You should be able to get a small pair of each glove design from one skein of the Fingering or Sock weight yarn, or a large pair of the Cockleshell Gloves with either a small or large pair of the Cockleshell handwarmers (but not a large pair of the Cockleshell Gloves and a pair of the Silver Bell Gloves).
