Those horse-drawn, pumpkin carriages can be chilly (to say nothing of cottages in the woods and tall stone towers); so what’s an enchanted princess to wear? These elegant gloves are just the thing under a long cape.

The long cuffs work perfectly well to keep the wind and cold out of your coat sleeves as well.

Construction Notes
The round starts at the center back of the hand for these gloves. After working the twisted rib cuff stockinette spreads from the base of the palm and the cable columns and purls on either side are slowly changed over until only the column running up the back of the hand remains.
