My latest glove design, ‘Los Guantes De Claudia’ are finally complete!

These gloves were my first ever collaboration project. The lovely Claudia from Eweknit here in Toronto gave me a skein of Zen Yarn Garden Serenity DK, literally on a whim, the very first time I met her. We really hit it off! It was so random, and I was so excited to actually be commissioned to design something.

These lovely gloves look deceptively complex but are actually really easy and fast (like, fast enough for Christmas) to work up once you get into the rhythm of them. A stag horn cable emerges gracefully from the ribbing at the forearm and dissolves back in at the end with a little extra cable motif to complete it.

Best of all these instructions are for working the gloves on 2 needles – you’ll be using mattress stitch at the end to create a completely seamless result. Knitters who wish to work in the round can proceed with their weapon of choice ;)

These gloves use up less than 200 yards of DK weight yarn, and are worked on 3.5 mm needles. They are easy enough for beginners and would make a great quick knit for seasoned knitters.

Instructions are given for small and medium, but the gloves themselves have lots of stretch once completed.

You can obtain the pattern at your store of choice :)
