Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round
  • Increasing
  • Decreasing
  • Following a chart

Pattern Description:

I fell in love with this stitch pattern while swatching - how it visually meanders and flows, how it manages to look both soft, curvaceous & feminine, and strong & almost carved out at the same time. I love when a single thing seems to encompass opposites.

The finished gloves are classic and clean-lined, but at the same time they have such visual impact. They add a dramatic touch to your winter wardrobe. Depending on how you style them, they could be classic/preppy, ultra feminine/vampish (think Bettie Page), Gothic, or Victorian.

Gauge:

32 sts = 4" in stockinette stitch
in the round.

36 sts = 4" in pattern stitch in the
round, unblocked/unstretched.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • One size - Women's Small through Large. The stitch pattern used is very elastic and will comfortably fit hand circumferences of 6 1/2" through 8 1/2". Finished length is 10 1/2".

Materials:

  • Set of size US 3 (3.25mm) DPNs (or size needed to obtain gauge)
  • 1 skein of Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Solids; 100% Merino wool, fingering weight, (or 275 yards of fingering weight if substituting yarn)
