I have been enjoying the clickity click of my knitting needles lately and I have a ton of completed projects to share with you-and all have been completed in the past month and a half.
I adapted this pattern (found here for the first page and here for the second page)The pattern calls for thinner wool than I had so I had to decrease the number of stitches and rows. I’d like to try this in a thinner silk or wool thread as I believe it was intended more as a fashion glove than a keep me warm glove.
I really like the Greek Keys in the pattern.
I liked this so much that I made full mittens out of the pattern using the left overs from the long gloves I made myself.
Neither of these are strictly authentic but it isn’t outside the realm of possibility that someone with thicker wool and colder weather wouldn’t have done the same as I did so I will use them with my costumes if the need arises.
I also made a more modern pair. I tried to purl rather than making the holes or the color change. Not a great effect but neither is it nasty.
I have another set on the go now in some blue wool. Knitting is just the perfect thing to do while watching Netflix.
