I’m so excited to show you these gloves!
I saw this pattern in a blanket and I thought it would be so fun for gloves – or maybe a skirt at some point? – and I set about creating a pattern for them.
I hit a few roadblocks when I first started trying to convert this pattern into gloves, but something about airplanes and flying really does it for the knitting part of my brain because it all came together perfectly before I even left the runway.
Of course, it’s being released this late because I had to work out sizing and figure out my notes and whatnot
But here it is! I’m so excited that these are finally ready, and I hope you love them as much as I do.
I consider this an advanced beginner pattern. If you’re nervous about the lace – don’t be! Once you get the hang of it, it’s a simple repeat. Just go slowly and carefully.
skein of worsted weight yarn
double pointed needles, US size 7 (4.5mm)
measuring tape (optional)
stitch marker (optional)
With US size 7 needles, cast on 10 stitches and knit 14 rows. Gauge swatch should be 2’” by 2”.
To make these gloves, you’ll need to know how to knit in the round on DPNs, have familiarity with knits and purls, and decreasing and increasing with both knits and purls.
