Overview

Growing up in Cape Breton, on Canada’s Atlantic coast, knitwear designer Robin Melanson learned early on the importance of gloves and mittens in a harsh winter climate. Now this self-described “mitten and glove aficionado” shares her enthusiasm for these ordinary items by presenting 28 extraordinary ways to make them for year-round style.

Featuring gloves, mittens, arm warmers, mitts, and fingerless gloves, this is the second book in a new SCT Craft series that introduces innovative approaches to creating popular knitted items. Knitting New Mittens and Gloves combines traditional and untraditional techniques—as well as influences as far-flung as Gothic architecture, Estonian lace, and Wagnerian opera—in a winning collection of patterns for adults and children. From wool mittens filled with unspun fleece and arm warmers with leather laces, to cotton-mesh fingerless gloves and silk-beaded mitts to be worn as adornments, each design has an unexpected twist.

Because they are small, quick to make, and don’t require a lot of yarn, mittens and gloves are perfect projects for knitting throughout the year, and they also offer an ideal opportunity for beginning and more seasoned knitters to experiment with new techniques, yarns, and styles. With its fresh, original sensibility, Knitting New Mittens and Gloves will captivate knitters of every level.

Knitting New Mittens and Gloves

CHAPTER 1

Accomplice

These easy-to-make hand-warmers can be worn with or without gloves underneath. Worked in a luscious silk/mohair blend yarn, they keep the wrist and forearm warm and sweep gracefully over the top of the hand. The barred pattern is created by passing yarnovers over the subsequent stitches, making a channel of yarn floats. The hand edge is finished with a few rows of a slipped stitch pattern, and the thumb hole is created by making a few chain stitches from the last stitch of the bind-off row and attaching it to a spot on the opposite side.

Sizes

One size (to fit average woman)


Finished Measurements

Approximately 7 ¾" wrist circumference; approximately 9 ¼" hand circumference


Yarn

Aethelwyne

An elfin shape and a rustic yarn combine to create an otherworldly mitten, which will nonetheless keep both children and adults warm in this realm. The bobble ring crowning the fluted cuff represents a fairy ring, which is a ring of mushrooms, in the center of which no mushrooms grow and fairies are said to dance. Aethelwyne is an Old English name meaning "friend of the elves."

Ålesund

These multicolored mittens have traditional Norwegian roots. The Art Nouveau-style motif on the top of the hand—definitely a modern touch—is an unexpected counterpoint to the striped palm. The cuff is edged with a few rows of gently flaring Stockinette stitch, which in this robust yarn is easy to block flat. The main pattern is knitted in two colors, and additional colors are added later using duplicate stitch. The mitten is named for a Norwegian town that was (and is today) an important center in the Jugendstil "youth style") movement, a German variant of Art Nouveau.

    I Also Recommend:

    if you like knitting gloves, this is the book for you.

    I found most of the patterns to be easy to follow and the photgraphs were beautiful. I am the sort of person who rarely uses the suggested yarn (allergic to wool) but even with substituting the yarn, I'm sure anyone who buys this book will find lots of inspiration in the pages.

    Patterns nice

    The patterns are beautiful. I am working on the driving gloves now, and am having a little problem understanding her pattern and making it work as it is described. I would recommend this book to an experienced knitter.
