Incarcerous is named for the spell that conjures up thick ropes or thin cords that bind whatever the caster was pointing at. The moving stitches in this design are not created using cables. Instead, carefully placed yarn overs paired with strategic decreases shape the entirety of this gauntlet. The ribbed thumb gusset uses the same technique. This overall texture is surprisingly stretchy, though it may not appear to be at first glance. These are one size fits most!
