The woman of fashion wears hand-knitted gloves to go with every outfit!

-Knitting For All, Illustrated by Margaret Murray and Jane Koster

This collection of gloves was inspired by the glamor of old Hollywood. When men wore suits and fedoras and women didn’t leave home without a feathered hat on their heads and a stylish pair of gloves on their hands.

The whole collection can be purchased for $15.00 here.

This pair, inspired by Joan Crawford, are demure with a dainty double layered lace cuff on one side, with a flash of vixeny wrist in an oversized keyhole on the palm side, reminiscent of Joan Crawford’s signature flares of temper on screen.

The gloves are meant to fit with no ease for a 7(8)” circumference, but with negative ease, will fit a larger hand circumference. The model shown is a 7” size glove on a 7.5” circumference hand. Hand circumference should be measured as shown here.

Stitches used: knit, purl, k2tog, ssk, m1, sl1 k2tog psso, sl2 k3tog p2sso, yo, kfb, sl wyif, sl wyib.

Notions: stitch markers to mark gusset, tapestry needle for weaving in ends. Scrap yarn or safety pins to hold finger stitches. Two buttons and embroidery floss in a color to correspond with the yarn.
