Embellishing and lacing up: Block the four pieces first. Then sew the beads on the bobbles across the top of the gloves. Do this before you lace them up.

The crisscross method of lacing is used in the model – the laces simply crisscross as they work their way down the glove.  Lacing starts at row 11 of both top and bottom sections of the glove. Slip the laces in the chain spaces and between the two dc's. When you reach the end of the glove, knot the ends of the laces together.
