Ever After by Maree Buscke
This is a great pattern because its quick to knit up, practical to wear & uses only 1 – 2 balls of yarn. A perfect project for beginners. I have chosen a very simple lace pattern that gives you that “looks much harder than it actually is” effect.

  • Step 1

    Cast on 36 stitches
    Knit three rows
    Row 1 of pattern: k2tog twice (“yo, k1” 4 times, k2tog 4 times)repeat until last 8 sts, yo, k1 4 times, k2tog twice
    Row 2: Purl
    Row 3: Knit
    Row 4: Purl
    Continue working 9 sets of the pattern (or until you have reached the length desired) Work row 1 of the pattern
    Knit 3 rows then cast off.

  • Step 2

    Make up
    Using mattress stitch, join the side seam from the cast off edge & sew 3cm. Bind off & rejoin the yarn 5cm from bound off point & sew to bottom (in effect leaving a 5cm thumb hole). You should have a straight edge at the top of the gauntlet & a scalloped edge at the bottom. Weave in ends & steam block if desired.
    Abbreviations: K1 = Knit one stitch. K2tog = Knit 2 stitches together. yo = Yarn over (take the yarn from the back of your work through to the front & over the needle to knit.)
    The pattern is written to fit an average sized ladies hand. My hands are quite large, & they still fit me well. If you wish to down size, just use 8ply yarn on a 4.5mm or 4mm needle – do not reduce the number of cast on stitches. If you wish to make longer gauntlets, it is advised you purchase two balls of yarn.
    Variations
    Using the 5mm needles try something a little more luxurious & use the Whisper Mohair.
