BabyCocktails Absinthe Gloves PDF
BabyCocktails' Absinthe Gloves pattern is an elegantly styled pair of gloves, with a nod to the Hitchcock blonde. Updated for a less formal look, they are knit out of a vibrant yarn with fun button detail and a cable motif. The delicate cable has a bit of hidden lace, and narrow button bands let you use a few vintage buttons out of your stash. Still retro and classic, but designed to be modern and fun too. The cable pattern is in chart form only.
