A glowing green gradient graces these gorgeous gloves, echoing the simple beauty of the rocks, grasses, and lichens that grace the cliffs of their namesake. Keep your fingers free and your hands cozy no matter where your explorations take you.

Little Orme is worked in the round from the cuff. Left and right mitts are identical, with a stranding design in two-color rows that extends even across the thumb gusset.

This pattern is charted; the ribbing sections are written, but the colourwork sections are not written out line by line.

Also available as a kit using Baa Ram Ewe Pip Colourwork
