I used to love digging through all of my grandmother's various lace "social gloves" that she would wear (with hats and pearls) whenever she went out to a friend or neighbor's home for tea. My generation has never been forced into such social nicetieswhich means we can play with bold colors, stitch patterns, and other modifications of the traditional summer glove. This version is a simple riff on the idea, with an easy stitch pattern and minimal shaping that really lets hand-dyed and handspun yarns shine. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting in the round Basic lace GAUGE 22 stitches and 46 rows = 4 inches in pattern stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS To fit hands of 6-8"/15-20cm circumference at the knuckles. SUGGESTED YARN 100 yards of Fingering weight

Recommended with this pattern

  • 90 - 110 yards (82 - 101 m) fingering weight yarn
  • US 3 - 3.25 mm double pointed needles
  • Stitch markers

I’m a lifelong knitter, from a family of knitters, gardeners, seamstresses, and sailors (yes, even the men!) - who also happen to be doctors, scientists, priests, and businesspeople (yes, even the women!). I like to design baby blankets, accessories for children, adults, and the home, and garments for children and adults. You can find my patterns through my indie line here on Craftsy or in a variety of print and online magazines and books. I happily work with local yarn stores, crafters, and indie dyers: please contact me to start a conversation about how we can support each other!
