The pattern is Knotty Gloves by Julia Mueller. The yarn is The Uncommon Thread Posh Fingering in ashes to ashes. The pattern is written pretty well, not wordy at all. I’d call it an intermediate knit if you’ve knit cables before. I love the yarn. It’s soft and pleasant to knit. I added a few inches to the cuff to insure I met the yardage requirement for Loopy Academy.
Overall the gloves fit quite well. They are the first pair of gloves I have ever knit. I won’t rule out knitting gloves again but I will say that before knitting these, my favorite gloves were the stretchy ones from the Dollar store. I won’t rule out buying those either.
A note to myself: When you pick patterns and yarn for the next semester of Loopy Academy pick out projects that you love. They knit up so much quicker than the “oh that will do” projects.
