Snow Bank Gauntlets

Lion Brand® LB Collection® Organic Wool

GAUGE:

About 18 sts + 20 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) over pattern before felting;
About 22 sts + 22 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) over pattern after felting.

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:

MCW (mock cable wrap - over 6 sts) Bring yarn to front of work, sl 6 sts just worked back to left needle, wrap yarn across front of these 6 sts and bring yarn to back of work, sl same 6 sts back to right needle.
M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.
skp Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 1, pass slip stitch over knit stitch - 1 st decreased.
yo A yarn over (yo) creates a new loop on your needle and is worked by wrapping the yarn around your right hand needle. Do not use an existing stitch to make a yarn over. The finished yarn over will leave an open space (like an eyelet) in your knitting - this is part of this design.

NOTES:

1. Gauntlets are knit in the rnd and then lightly felted by hand.
2. Mock cables (no cable needle needed) are created by wrapping the working yarn around a group of 6 sts. When working the next st following a mock cable wrap, carefully pull the working yarn tight to cinch the wrapped sts.
3. Gauntlets can be worked from charts OR from written instructions below.
4. The beg of rnd marker should be a different color than the gusset markers.

FINISHING

Felting
Felt Gauntlets by lightly agitating pieces by hand with a small amount of soap, alternating between hot and cold water. Rinse thoroughly. The lightly felted pieces should be soft, with clearly defined sts. Pull Gauntlets into shape and allow to dry completely.
