Item details

This is the second pattern in my Ceylon series which were conceived while cycling around the island of Sri Lanka (formerly called Ceylon). They are a mock cable technique using increases and decreases rather than a cable needle. The Fingerless Gloves have two options: a lacey version and a solid version simply by interpreting the pattern chart differently.

*** Etsy will provide an automatic download link for the pattern after you have purchased it.***

Ability to understand charts, work in the round, increases and decreases.
