Night Birds

Night Birds fingerless gloves

Sweet, girlish and a little sporty, Night Birds fingerless gloves are knit in the round with ribbed cuff and border, stranded color work and just a little embroidery. The thumb shaping is part welt, part flap for a lovely fit.

These were designed as accessories to my Buntings cardigan, but they're also a nice way to use up some leftover yarns from your pueblo stole or lotus tee
