Gauntlets Are Cool

This is Link, he is a brave and clever hero but most importantly he wears gauntlets.

Riley wanted a pair of Gauntlets like Link's in Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, so for him I knitted a little guy version of Eowyn from Rowan Magazine #38.

I made several adjustments on this pattern:
  • No! Frilly! Lace!
  • No! Wool! Substitute Jo Sharp Desert Garden Aran Cotton in Cinnamon, used just about every yard of 2x50g balls
  • 25% smaller in circumference, smaller cable too
  • Made 4-stitch button holes for thumbs :)
  • Opposite cables mirror each other instead of both twisting in the same direction
  • Knitted in the round, as it should be
