Long Scalloped Glove Adrienne

Adrienne15

I was planning on writing a pdf.file for the pattern and to make some nice photographs on these long scalloped gloves but alas, I am running out of time.

Several people have been asking me to please please post the pattern soon because it would make such a nice Christmas gift.

Pdf.file will follow soon, for now you will have to do with this posting, aight?

Long Fingerless Glove “Adrienne”

scallloped long version 2

This long fingerless glove is named after a beautiful and tall woman called Adrienne, who happens to be my friend!

First I will give you sort of a picture tutorial and the entire pattern is written out further down this page.

In this pattern you need to know how to increase by knitting in front and back of a stitch (kfb). You also need to know the slip slip knit decrease (ssk) and the knit two together decrease (k2tog).

If you do not know how to do this please go to knittinghelp.com and watch Amy Finlay’s video tutorials on Kfb, ssk and k2tog.

This pattern contains a 8 row repeat stitch which give you 7 scalloped purl ridges. The front side of the glove is scalloped, the back side contains simply stockinette stitch.

The first and last stitch are always knit in stockinette stitch which will make your life easier when you seam later on.

After you are done with the knitting part you will have to seam the glove, using the mattrass stitch technique. If you don’t know how to seam, go to knittinghelp.com and watch Amy Finlay’s excellent video tutorial on the mattress stitch. Scroll down her page untill you hit the “finishing” section and click on the mattress stitch!

Start Seaming down from the top for about 2.5 inches:

Then start seaming up from the bottom for about 8 inches untill you have a thumb opening left of about 1.25 – 1.50 inches:

Turn the glove inside out and weave in the ends.

In the end you should have a nice and neat seam:

And if all went well, your glove should look something like this:

I particularly like the scallop right on top of the glove. It is almost as if it “protects” your fingers by wrapping it in the scallop! And it looks so feminine on!

And now for the pattern!

Again, the pdf will follow shortly, for now you will have to do with this:

Materials
Yarn: Manos Silk Blend, dk weight, 150 yards. Any dk yarn will do as long as you have about 140-150 yards of yarn.

Needle Size 7 or size to obtain gauge! I am a very tight knitter so you might want to consider a different needle size!
Darning needle for seaming.

Gauge:
4.5 st and 6 rows in = 1” in St st
Be sure to check your gauge, okay?

Size: Length: approx. 12”
Width (when not seamed): approx. 6.5”

This pattern is knitted flat from the top down. The first and last stitch are always knit in stockinette stitch to make your life easier when you need to seam.

NOTE: The SSK in this pattern is done as follows: Slip knitwise, Slip knitwise , and then knit both stitches together into the back loops.
