Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 18 sts in St st (k on RS, p on WS) to knit gauntlet that measures about 8 inch circumference at upper edge and about 19 inch long top to bottom. Gauntlets are meant to fit with negative ease (Gauntlet circumference should less than body measurement) for a snug fit. Save time, check your gauge. If the hook or needle listed under supplies does not work, use the size that allows you to obtain the required gauge.
    Download the template for abbreviations and stitches not explained elsewhere.
    Special stitches and abbreviations:
    Pattern Stitches = K2, P2 Rib (multiple of 4 sts). Row 1: *K2, p2, rep from * across. Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts. Rep Row 2 for K2, p2 Rib.
    kfb (knit in front and back) = knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st – 1 st increased.
    Note: Crochet hook is used for single crochet trim around elbow slit. If desired, you may embroider blanket st around elbow slit instead of working crochet trim.
