These are vorpal gauntlets of warming because of the tight knitting gauge and the alpaca. They might only be plus 1’s if you knit in worsted wool, but they will still be cozy and fun!

These gauntlets are an introduction in heavier weight wool to techniques you need for sock knitting. There are short rows, a sewn bind-off, a couple Kitchener stitches, and a chart to read.

They are also an exercise in understanding the various m1 increases, left and right leaning, as well as knit and purl.

Since you’re working in larger yarn on larger needles, it’s easier to see how the yarn is moving, and understand how these techniques work.
