Cashmere Garter Cuffed Gloves, Pt. 1


Pattern: Garter Cuffed Gloves from Weekend Knitting
Yarn: School Products Cashmere DK, some kinda blue
Needles: US 4 double-pointed needles
Recipient: Chris' Mom, Nancy

Comment: Only one glove was ready by Christmas, so Mrs. Anderson indulgently did her best impression of the gloved one whilst she awaited completion of its mate. Unfortunately, I was in such a hurry to give them to her that this photo of one glove just out of the wash is the best one that exists.

Again, I wasn't thrilled with this pattern because it ended up being just way too big for anyone with normal-sized hands, it seemed. That could have been due to my yarn substitution. I'll fess up and say I was in too much of a hurry to knit a swatch.

What I ended up doing was knitting according to the original pattern up to the thumb, then basically following the Patons Convertible Mittens / Gloves pattern for the rest. They looked odd lying flat, a bit like one of those construction-paper palm turkeys kids make at Thanksgiving. Once on, all the oddities stretched out and looked just fine. The result was a long, luxurious glove.

The search continues for the perfect glove pattern...

i made these gloves and did not have a problem, but i swatched as i was definitely using a different gauge of yarn (i used elsebeth lavold's angora). but you are not the first person i have heard say that this pattern makes a big glove. now i am wondering if i have abnormally large hands and just never knew it.
