For this pattern you need:
Yarn: One 50g hank of Purl & Jane Cuckoo Cashmere 4 ply (80% Merino wool & 20% Cashmere, 200m/218yds per 50g)
Tension: 28 stitches and 40 rows to 10cm square over lace pattern using 3mm needles.
Sizes: To fit average sized hand.
I launched this pattern at Yarndale 2019 and they fitted everyone who tried it on!
My design ideas and advice: I designed the pattern that I’m sharing with you today, the Tavistock Gloves, because a super lovely knitting beginner, who I helped her knit her first pair of socks, wanted to knit gloves….but on two needles (even though she totally bossed knitting on dpns!) so I designed these for her.
It took me a while because the last time I wore hand knitted gloves they were were fingerless ones when I was a teenager but I had designed Frankie Fingerless mittens so I used a combination of memory and the Frankie pattern to get these right.
This pattern was launched at Yarndale along with the other new Cuckoo Cashmere patterns and lots of people with different hand sizes tried these gloves on and they fitted every one, they are magical gloves! They are also magical – and so simple – to knit. And so deliciously soft and light in the new Purl &Jane Cuckoo Cashmere 4 ply.
