    Details

    Right glove

    Cast on 48 sts and divide them over four needles, 12 sts each. The beginning of round is between needles I and IV. Work reverse stockinette st for 4 rounds and then ribbing for 10 cm.

    Knit 2 rounds, evenly decreasing 8 sts = 40 sts.

    Work stockinette st in the round and begin the thumb gusset. Work needles I and II. On needle III k1, increase 1 st (= knit the strand of yarn between the sts through the back loop). K3, increase 1 st, work to end of round. Work 2 rounds even, then repeat the increases, now with 5 sts between them. Continue in stockinette st, working the increases as established on every 3rd round 3 more times. There are 2 sts more between the increases after each time (5 increase rounds in total = half the number of sts on one needle, with the gusset now at the base of the thumb).

    After the last increases, work 1 round. Work the next round up to the gusset. Leave the 13 gusset sts on hold. Cast on 3 sts at the gusset. Continue in stockinette st until the glove reaches the base of your little finger.

    Now knit the little finger. Pick up 5 sts from the beginning of needle I (back), cast on 3 sts between the little finger and the ring finger, pick up 5 sts from the end of needle IV (palm) = 13 sts. Divide the sts over three needles and work stockinette st in the round until the glove almost covers your nail. Top decreases: at the end of each needle k2tog until 3 sts remain. Break yarn and pull it through the sts. Securely weave in.

    Move the sts you left on hold onto the needles and pick up 3 sts from the base of the little finger. Work 3 rounds in stockinette st with all 33 sts.

    Ring finger: pick up 4 sts from the back, cast on 3 sts between the ring finger and middle finger, pick up 5 sts from the palm and the 3 sts from the ring finger cast-on = 15 sts. Work like the little finger.

    Middle finger: pick up 4 sts from the back, cast on 3 sts between the middle finger and index finger, pick up 5 sts from the palm and 3 sts from the base of the ring finger = 15 sts. Work as established.

    Index finger: pick up the remaining 12 sts and 3 sts from the base of the middle finger = 15 sts. Work as established.

    Thumb: divide the sts on hold over two needles and pick up 5 sts from the base of the thumb using a third needle = 18 sts. Knit 1 round with all sts. On the 2nd round, k2tog at the picked-up sts at the thumb base. Knit the 3rd round. On the 4th round decrease 1 st as on round 2. Work stockinette st with the remaining 16 sts until the fabric covers half your thumb nail. Work the top decreases as established.

    Left glove

    Work like right glove but work the thumb gusset at the end of needle II.

    Finishing

    Steam the gloves lightly.

    Skill levels

    Beginner

    Have you just learned to knit, maybe still trying to figure out the very basics like knit and purl stitches? Or are you picking up knitting again for the first time since elementary school? Start here.

    Technique

    Beginner-level patterns include only basic knitting techniques: knitting and purling. You’ll also need to cast on and cast off stitches. The projects can be worked flat or in the round. Easy, regular decreases are used. Most patterns are worked in stockinette or garter stitch. Other simple stitch patterns may occur, and they are always detailed in the written pattern. Stripes of different colours may be used, but no more advanced colourwork.

    Patterns

    All patterns are written and do not include charts. Abbreviations are not used. Getting gauge is not crucial to the finished piece. Patterns include mostly accessories such as scarved and beanies. Pillowcases and other home decoration pieces.

    Adventurous beginner

    Got the basics covered? You’d like to take a swing at your first pair of socks, perhaps some easy cables or colourwork? A treasure of patterns awaits you on this level.

    Technique

    Patterns on this level may include simple colourwork, cables or lace. Colourwork patterns repeats are relatively short, cables simple and symmetrical and lace patterns easy and relatively small, covering details rather than entire pieces. The colourwork, cable and lace stitches are not worked into decreases or increases. Colourwork yarn floats are short, max. 3-4 stitches. Picking up stitches may occur. On this level, you’ll also find easy patterns using domino knitting, log cabin knitting or tunisian crochet.

    Patterns

    Patterns may include simple charts. In case special techniques are employed, they are detailed our in the instructions, either as text or e.g. through videos. The patterns may also suggest ”shortcuts”, i.e. easier ways to accomplish a technique. Most of the basic socks with heel flaps or afterthought heels are on this level, as well as mittens with no-gusset thumbs. There’s also plenty of sweaters, usually yoke sweaters or raglan sleeve sweaters.

    Intermediate

    So knitting is a regular hobby for you? Abbreviations, charts and instructions are no more than a walk in the park? Perhaps you’re looking for something to challenge yourself with, even at the odds of frogging?

    Technique

    In addition to basic techniques, some special techniques may be employed on this level, e.g. short rows. The same pattern may include both lace and cables. Magic loop knitting or entrelac, two-coloured brioche stitch, also here. In general, patterns require a more advanced ability to "read" your knitting. Lace patterns are also more advanced than on the previous level, but the lace stitches are still worked on right side only. Intarsia may be included, but in relatively simple and symmetrical patterns.

    Patterns

    Patterns on this level can feature concurrent shaping, e.g. neckline shaping at the same time as sleeve decreases or sleeve decreases into cable pattern. Sweater sleeves may require more advanced shaping. Most of our sweaters are at this level. Other patterns include e.g. magic loop patterns and toe-up socks.

    Advanced

    Turn off that telly and lash the doors, maximum concetration required! Although this skill level doesn’t bring much more in terms of technique, there’s simply more going on at the same time. Skill, concentration and perception are requisite.

    Technique

    On this level, you’ll find more advanced intarsia patterns, including intarsia in the round. Brioche patterns with decreases and/or cables are also here. Beginning of rounds may shift and multiple markers are needed. Lace or cable stitches may be worked also from wrong side. We’ve also included patterns featuring steeks here. Steeking isn’t hard as such, but requires the nerves and confidence of an experienced knitter.

    Patterns

    Patterns may include complex steps and require simultaneous reading of both charts and written instructions. Gauge may vary over different steps of the project. The patterns often feature much details and a combination of techniques. The size of the project is not what determines whether it’s advanced or not; focus is on technique, overall complexity and the risk of errors during the project.

    Gauge & Swatching

    Gauge and Swatching

    Every pattern is based on a certain gauge, expressed as stitches or rows per 10 cm. It is important that you make a swatch to check your gauge before you start the actual project. If your gauge doesn’t match the pattern’s gauge, your finished garment won’t be the correct size either.

    Swatching Start by knitting a swatch. Use the yarn, the needles and the stitch pattern you intend to use in the project. Make the swatch a little wider than 10 cm, so that you’ll be able to measure the stitches properly. Block the swatch by pinning it to a surface, then steam it gently. Count the stitches; put a pin in a stitch, then measure 10 cm from that stitch and put another pin there. Count the stitches from pin to pin – that’s your gauge! If needed, measure both horizontal and vertical gauge (rows). If you’re measuring rib or brioche stitches, stretch out the swatch slightly before measuring.

    Adjusting gauge

    If your gauge doesn’t match the pattern gauge, you can adjust it by switching needle size. If your swatch has too few stitches per 10 cm (i.e. your knitting is too loose), switch to smaller needles. Conversely, if your swatch has too many stitches per 10 cm, your knitting is too tight and you’ll need a larger pair of needles. Always knit another swatch in order to determine proper gauge and sizing. Also note that the pattern yardage only applies to the pattern yarn, the yardage may differ if you choose another yarn.
