I have been fascinated by the lovely Scottish tradition of Sanquhar gloves since I first saw a photograph of them. Drawn to their apparent complexity, I was happily surprised at the simple logic of their construction. Due to their fixed layout, these gloves are best knitted in different sizes by changing the needle and yarn size. I could not resist playing with the squares, while leaving the basic architecture alone. Now that I live in Vermont and winter is always around the corner, I chose little pine trees and snowflakes to grace my gloves that will keep me warm in beautiful, but frigid, New England.
