Pattern Description:

A Downton Abbey inspired pattern!

Mary so loves to wear long gloves, with flattering lacy sleeves falling over them in gentle drapes! In these, her favourite ones, the lace theme of the sleeves is already incorporated in the top end of the gloves. But as Mary isn't one to go over the top (she has style!), the main part of the gloves is plain, just featuring the traditional three pleats on the back of the hand. There is a truly vintage "mousquetaire opening" on the inside of the wrist. A practical elastic band is fed through the upper part of the cuff to stop the gloves from slipping down the arms.

Of course there are times, when Mary needs shorter, more practical gloves- but she wanted them to look just the same as her favourite long ones!

The gloves can be worked in fingering, sport or dk weight yarn. Fingering weight yarn will result in lightweight, loosely knitted and more decorative gloves. For dense and warm gloves choose a dk weight yarn.

The pattern is fully written, with additional charts for the lace section.

fingertips on

I just love knitting gloves: once you get to the fingers there are so few stitches per round, that another finger is finished in what seems no time at all - giving you a constant sense of achievement!

My knitting patterns provide very detailed instructions. Apart from the very few designs in which the two gloves/mittens are knitted exactly identical, my patterns always include instructions for ...
