Lion Brand® Jiffy®


14 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). 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


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.


1. Gauntlets are meant to fit with negative ease (Gauntlet circumference should be less than body measurement) for a snug fit.
2. Pattern is written for Mini Gauntlets with changes for Midi and Maxi Gauntlets in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning.

Cast on 22 sts. Work in St st (k on RS, p on WS) until piece measures about 7 in. (18 cm) from beg, end with a WS row.

Greenwich Gauntlets Reviewed by joanna rundquist on 2012-09-10 *****
These are super easy to make!! Instead of using Lion Brand "Jiffy" yarn I used Lion Brand "Tweed Stripes" as it is the same weight of yarn.
They came out beautiful!!! I am now working on another pair in a different color of Lion Brand "Tweed Stripes". :)
