A chunky two-ply with very short color runs is worked in rows in stockinette. The fabric is shaped into a subtle hourglass with short-rows. This hourglass folds over the hand and wrist and is seamed up one side, creating a tailored fit. The short-rows are very basic and easy to follow in this pattern—a good project for practicing this shaping technique.

Finished Size: 7½" hand circumference and 9 ¼" long.

Yarn: Sheep Shop Yarn Sheep Number Two (100% wool; 90 yd [82 m]/100 g): #G43 pink/blue/brown multi (MC) and #F70 blue-black (CC), 1 skein each.

Needles: Size 10 (6 mm): straight needles and set of double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Tapestry needle.

Gauge: 13 sts and 19 rows = 4" in St st.
