I’ve now knitted a second pair of these, and written up the pattern as I’ve gone along. There are some minor changes from the originals, but the finished glove is pretty much the same.

These long, fingerless gloves were originally created during our Lord of the Rings extended editions watch-a-thon, and are inspired by Arwen as I imagine her from the books. The beautiful silvery-blue yarn made me think of starlight and of the Evenstar of her people.
You will need 2 x 50g Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK in shade 008 (pattern uses approx 170 m of yarn) and a set of 3.25 mm dpns (or smaller/larger to adjust glove size). The finished glove fits my traditionally-built arms (wrist = 21 cm around) and the arm measures approx 12 cm to the wrist.
I’m still new to pattern writing so please let me know if there are any errors or problems.
