Aspen Gloves

Granny Square Fingerless Gloves Pattern by The Roving Nomad

Color can take us back in time and remind us of a particular place. The autumn tones featured in this glove represent the fall season in Aspen, Colorado. In a time and place where the foliage is painted with shades of yellow, orange, red and green and snow-capped mountains loom above. These fingerless gloves are sure to keep your hands warm while you take in all that beautiful fall scenery.
