I know it’s just barely fall, but it’s going to be winter before you know it and you’re going to want some lovely new gloves.

What’s so wonderful about this pattern (besides how pretty the gloves are)? It’s drafted for BOTH men & women’s hands & uses worsted weight yarn to boot!
Well… the men’s calls for worsted and the women’s glove pattern calls for sport weight yarn. It’s exactly the yarn you’d want to use for a pretty glove like this one.
Men’s Glove: 13 stitches = 2 inches, using a US size 2 (vintage Boye Size 3) knitting needle.
Women’s Glove: 15 stitches = 2 inches, using a US size 2 (vintage Boye Size 3) knitting needle.
At a first glance this doesn’t seem right. But do imagine, using a smaller needle with a larger yarn will produce a very tight knit fabric – which is what you want with a winter glove.
Of course, I recommend testing this out on some scrap yarn you have lying around at home before you go out and buy the perfect yarn for this project. Better to be safe than sorry & swatch.
This pattern booklet has a host of wonderful glove & mitten patterns in it; for men, women, & children! If you’d like me to post up any more, just give me a shout out in the comments and I can make that happen. :)
Have a lovely weekend you guys!
