Ringwood Gloves, from A History of Hand Knitting. I’m searching for a stitch that is warm and windproof, so I’m going to knit a series of gloves to find the perfect one.

I slightly adapted the pattern, if you can call the very general directions in the book that. I added a small band of stocking stitch around the wrist, and I inserted a thumb gusset and finger fourchettes.

The knit-by-numbers merino wool has knitted up very nicely, so let’s see if it stands up to wear. And whether the Ringwood stitch is windproof!

27/11/2011: I’m sorry to report that the gloves have started to pill already. Damn you merino! On the other hand, the gloves are quite windproof.
