I finished my gloves and cannot stop staring at them… I am amazed, so incredibly amazed at this beautiful piece of knitting engineering. I just cannot get over the fact that somebody figured this out and actually wrote the pattern.
I used lace weight yarn from Karabella and fingering weight yarn from Louet Gems to play around:
What amazes me the most is that I did not use 4 double pointed needles to complete each individual finger. Two double pointed needles did the trick with using the Double Knitting technique. This means that you knit a tube inside out with only two needles.
Top down fingertips
The fingers are all knitted top down. A wonderful cast-on technique and turning of the fingertips creates elegant fingertips:
Elegant attaching of the fingers, perfect seams
Furthermore, the attaching of the fingers are done by such an elegant technique leaving a perfect seam in between the fingers. This my dear reader, is poetry to me:
In this picture you can see how flawless the thumb is attached:
And just look at the seam between thumb and palm:
I am so happy to have taken this class. Talented knitter and excellent teacher Judy Taylor is offering this class again in the Fall. Don’t miss it. You will not regret taking this class!
Thanks for helping me choosing a picture!
Thanks everyone, for helping me choose a picture for my Sally Hat pattern. It was really great fun and no doubt picture # 3 was by far the most popular.
At this moment, the pattern is being send to graphic designers and hopefully all will be ready by next week. Fingers crossed!
Thank you so much for reading and until the next entry!
