Sonnet 73 Gauntlets
This design grew from my love of autumn leaves. The yarn’s color perfectly matches the shade of yellow I see in the changing aspen leaves where I live. The leaves are shaped accurately, and I love how the vine lace pattern up the sides of the arm organically shapes the gauntlets.

Gauge is important in this item, but can be altered slightly for size. If knit at a gauge of 8 spi (as shown in green on page 130), it will fit a small woman or teenager’s arm. At a larger gauge than 7 spi, it will become too long for the arm. In order for it to fit at that gauge, omit the first 20 rnds of the chart.
