Inspired by the intricate patterns of chain maille, these highly cabled fingerless gloves look more complex than they are to knit. Though not as stretchy as some of my other patterns, the thumb gusset gives the gloves a comfortable fit.
These are knit from the bottom cuff up.
They are knit in the round.
