Watch the ribs part to show the hidden beads glimmering in the shadows when you put them on your hands. Don’t miss the special twisted stitch pattern that adorns the thumb.
Gloves can be made fingerless if desired. The ribbing creates a delicious hug for your hands that is very stretchy. Pattern fits a wide range of hand sizes. Beads are prestrung before knitting, but it’s so worth it!
