Pattern - Accelerating Stripes Fingerless Gloves & Cowl
This is a printed pattern to be mailed or picked up.
We love stripes—big stripes, little stripes and everything in between. So when Alicia Vause created a pair of fingerless gloves that had all of the above, in stripes that zipped from 5 rounds to 4 to 3 to 2 to 1—we jumped on board. Then we just had to share the fun with our necks, revving our stripes from 18 rounds to 3 in a super-soft cowl that’s seamless in both directions. Snap!
