Gloves for Mom


Original Pattern found here on Knit Picks

Yarn: Shine Sport (from Knit Picks), 60% Pima Cotton/40% Modal (very silky soft)
color: “Serenade” (plum)
Hook = F

My mom requested these special for her birthday. So, I got the pattern, I took measurements of her hands, worked out my own stitch gauge. Also at her request I left out rows 5-8 which added a large diamonds section, and at least an additional 2 inches of length up the arm. Neither of us thought that was needed.

She seems happy with the result. Success!

Purple Gloves

These were a special request. This gal has a hard time finding gloves that will fit her long thin hands. She is also allergic to any kind of animal fiber, so no wool or alpaca could be used here.

Here’s the yarn I used: Knit Picks, Shine Sport (sport weight), Color = serenade (plum), 60% pima cotton/40% modal (tree pulp). Nice and soft. (I think I might make myself a pair in alpaca).

They are light weight and fitted, long enough at the fingers and cuff that they can be folded back if she wants to.
