Skill Level:

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic knitting skills as well as knitting in the round, basic cables and more advances lacework

Pattern Description:

This versatile design has a little bit of easy cables, and some more challenging lace work. There are four possible variations, firstly you will get to choose between making a wrist or mid-arm length glove. Then at the end you will also be able to choose between completely fingerless and half finger gloves.

This glove is fitted and has some negative ease (~1") to allow the lace to open up when worn. Additional sizes can be achieved by changing needle sizes.

Advice on yarn choice: Using a semi or completely solid yarn will let the stitch pattern do all the talking while a variegated yarn will let the stitch pattern show off the colours. I don't think a self striping or variegated yarn with long colour repeats would work very well with this pattern.

Gauge:

36 stitches and 48 rows = 4 inches in Stocking Stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Small (6-6.5"), Medium (7-7.5") and Large (8-8.5") hand circumference.

  • 50g 4ply yarn (approx, 219 - 284 yards (200 - 260 m) )
  • Cable needle (optional)
  • Waste yarn
