I love the creativity of knitting and enjoy exploring new colours, fibres and techniques. I learnt to knit when I was five (I think!) from my mum and grandparents, since then I haven't stopped! As an experienced knitter I take a lot of time and care over my knitting patterns to ensure that they are as accessible as possible to newer knitters, you will often find helpful hints, tips and ideas dotted around my patterns. For some patterns there are help pages at the end, brilliant for less experienced knitters but can also be easily omitted by more experienced knitters who want to save their printer ink.
I enjoy sharing my craft and skills and hope to introduce many more people to knitting. I hope you have as much fun knitting my designs as I did creating them!
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.
