Update: the 2014 Men In Knitwear Calendar Club patterns are now available for individual sale.

Mr February’s pattern was inspired by the film, Gladiator. He may have fought long, hard campaigns in distant lands, but he’s done it with warm hands. Be ready for your next conquest with these firm knit gloves. The Gladiator gloves are worked flat, sewn up at the sides and the thumb is picked up and worked in the round with dpns.

These gloves are knit with a very firm gauge and feel very comfortable to wear. The pattern is written in one size as they will fit most adult hands, but instructions are given for a simple adaptation for an unusually small or large hand.
These gloves can be knit from 1 skein of Cascade 220, so they’re great for using up that odd skein in your stash or for gift giving.

They are knit starting with the wristband from side to side, the hand sts are then picked up from the edge of the wristband and the hand is worked upwards. The hand band is then joined to the live hand sts as it is worked from side to side and finally the thumb is knit in the round on dpns and includes short rows for shaping. There is a very small amount of sewing in the side seam.

Men In Knitwear Calendar Club is a Stitch Seekers production. A calendar of, well… men in knitwear, but wait, there’s more! Each month also contains the knitting pattern for the knitwear pieces our lovely models will be sporting, it’s a win-win! Subscribe to the MIK calendar and enjoy a new man in your inbox at the start of every month. That’s 12 small to medium sized projects on a larger than life man + the bonus cover design; a total of 13 super cool knitting patterns brought to life by our handsome models. We don’t want to distract you from the knitwear so the models won’t be wearing loads of other clothes. You’ll never forget an appointment again!
