The inspiration for these gloves came while watching an old black and white movie. The actress swept into a room and before removing her long white gloves, she needed to unbutton them down to her wrist. These gloves have a shorter cuff so only have one button. The are begun on straight needles--a plus if you struggle with twisting the cast on edge when joining circularly knit items. The cables shape the wrist and top of hand, and if desired, the beads can easily be omitted for a more conventional look.
