My Lovely Lace Fingerless Gloves were inspired by my love of vintage lace
and desire to have a quick knit gift project!
I?ve always loved the elegance of fancy evening gloves that feature
many pearl buttons running down the wrist and forearm. So chic and
ladylike, but not wearable for every day.
I designed these with an opening at the back, so it could then be
adorned with fancy beads or pretty buttons for the faux button closure.
The bonus was that the first half of this project could be worked quickly
and easily on straight needles before needing to switch to DPNs (which I
tolerate, but aren?t my favorite, ha ha).
The lace pattern is a lovely double leaf lace that was the perfect number
of stitches to achieve the all-over lace design. Limiting myself to one ball
was also a fun challenge and a great way to attack my stash and make
room for new yarns.
