This pattern calls for sport weight yarn and US size 2 (2.75mm) double point knitting needles (3 of them). The pattern gauge is 8.5 sts per inch or 17 sts per 2 inches. Since the yarn is a bit thick for the needles here, this would produce a dense, air-tight glove, perfect for the chilly winter months.
These gloves are knit in the round, and they’re designed for a women’s size medium. Looking forward into the pattern directions at Round 24: after the thumb stitches are placed on some scrap yarn, you’re left with 58 stitches. Dividing these 58 sts by the gauge of 8.5 sts per inch, this gives you 6.823 inches. This is the circumference of the mitten – not including your thumb.
I hope you love this glove pattern and do let me know if there are any others you’d like me to post for next week.
Have a great weekend!
