Fledgling Gloves

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

20 sts + 27 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

kfb (knit in front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st – 1 st increased.
M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop.

NOTES:

1. Cuff is worked back and forth in rows on straight needles. The knitting is then transferred to double pointed needles to work the hand in the round.
2. Fingers are knit, one at a time, in the round. Work each finger to desired length.
3. Left and Right Gloves are identical, except Cuff is reversed.

Fledgling Gloves Reviewed by Amanda Best on 2014-01-18 *****
Great pattern. This was the first time I have knitted gloves, and it was quick and easy. A tip I have is to thread the non-live stitches on scrap yarn as opposed to using a metal stitch holder. Using the scrap yarn made it much easier to work the fingers than when I tried using a metal stitch holder. Also, I changed the cuffs to be simple 1x1 rib so that they were more masculine. I used wool-ease in Delft.
