Stony Hill's Fair Isle Fingerless Gloves Pattern
This written and charted pattern is a fun way to learn about stranded knitting on a smaller scale. I'm a double pointed gal so those are the needles I used, magic loop is always an alternative for those of you that prefer that method. The pattern will be sent to you as a pdf. You can also find it on Ravelry.
