B Town Knit- Snow Drop Fingerless Gloves
Snow Drop Fingerless Gloves by Lisa Ellis Designs
These fingerless gloves are knit in the round using a twisted knit stitch (also known as Bavarian knitting) which is as simple as knitting into the back of the stitches to create a more prominent raised stitch and at the same time, working a 2-stitch traveling cable to create the snowdrop chart. The chart is only worked on the top of the hand. Twisted ribbing defines the thumb gusset and twisted knits make up the palm part of the gloves.
