Io is a happy glove that can be knit with colours in reverse for each hand – or not. Just as you please.

Io is also available as a fingerless mitt/fliptop mitten version for those without patience for knitting fingers. But then you won’t get the funky spiral that snakes around the index finger. Up to you!

The main pattern is a jacquard stitch, which creates a nice texture – and makes the glove a bit warmer.
There’s a  little simple fair isle on the cuff, but nothing too complicated.
The spiralling cable on the index finger is not tricky either. It moves a stitch or two on each round.

You’ll need 250 to 300 yards.
