fingerless gloves in Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande


This was a nice change of pace for me; I'm so used to working with #1 needles. This is Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande. I used #9 needles, with 32 stitches around. This is the softest yarn you can imagine, it is just wonderful. The cable stitch is not really a cable, but is: K2tog but leave on left hand needle, then knit the first stitch closest to the point of the needle, then slip both stitches off the left hand nedle.

These are beautiful. I love the color. I've never used Alpaca but from what everyone says it's much softer than wool.

Hi,
I love these mitts. How many skeins of the alpaca did it take for a pair?

I was able to get the pair out of the one hank, didn't have much left over though. -Heidi
