Avid fans of the Outlander series will love this adaptation of gardening gauntlets seen in the show as Claire gathers herbs, flowers and mushrooms. The designer has specified a 10-ply, worsted weight Merino Wool yarn that is wonderful against the skin. An intricate cable panel adds knitting interest to this simple design. The gauntlets are an elegant accessory, yet practical enough to wear while gathering herbs and flowers.
This Kit includes Highland Knits book (pattern inside) and selected yarn. This kit makes a wonderful gift for a knitter who loves Outlander!
