And as you’re about to leave
She jumps up and says hey love, you forgot your gloves
And the gloves to love to love the gloves…*
And I do love them. This is my first whole pair of full gloves, and they’re a perfect fit. I really like the yarn choice as well – the gloves are warm and comfortable.
Yarn: Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted, color 701W (I’d call it a dark taupe.)
Needles: 3.5mm / US 4
Modifications: I wasn’t using the specified yarns, so I needed to adjust for my gauge. To determine the size, I just swatched with the yarn in different sized needles in the round, using the number of stitches for the hand in both the small and large size until I found a combination that fit my hand the way I liked, and which gave a good fabric. The number of stitches for size small was the best for fitting my hand, but since I have rather stubby fingers, I thought the glove fingers were a little too tight. I redid them adding two more stitches per finger (which matched the number of stitches for the large size), and they came out just right.
