These beautifully patterned gloves were inspired by the spectacular red bud trees that bloom in the springtime in Oklahoma. They are knitted in the round with 2 colors of fingering weight yarn, making a double layer that will keep your hands extra warm. The gloves are knitted from a chart but detailed written instructions are also included with the pattern.
