Mary's Short Gloves
This is the short cuff version of Mary’s Best Gloves, which was first published in the Mary & Matthew kit from Woolgirl’s Downton Abbey Club. Both patterns are now available on ravelry in the Mary’s Gloves eBook.
There are times, when Mary needs shorter, more practical gloves– but she wanted them to look just the same as her favourite long ones!
The gloves can be worked in fingering, sport or dk weight yarn. Fingering weight yarn will result in lightweight, loosely knitted and more decorative gloves. For dense and warm gloves choose a dk weight yarn.
The sizes are Women’s XS, S, M, L, and XL, to fit hands with a circumference above thumb of around 17, 18, 19, 20, and 21.5 cm (6 5/8, 7 1/8, 7 1/2, 7 7/8, and 8 1/2”).
The pattern is fully written, with additional charts for the lace section.
