Sizing one size 

These over-the-elbow lace gloves are worked in the round on larger needles, changing to smaller needles for the top of the wrist. Changing needle size produces a slightly more fitted glove on the wrist and hand.

Tip: Extra definition is created by knitting into the back loop of knit stitches, so make sure you don't work with tight tension or you'll find this tricky as the yarn doesn't have much give in it.

Make both gloves the same

Using larger needles, cast on 42 sts, making sure to cast on loosely.

Join to work in the rnd, being careful not to twist. Pm to mark beg of rnd.
