>I looked through my old machine knitting patterns trying to find a pattern for fingerless gloves but I couldn’t find one so I decided to knit a pair of normal gloves instead.
The pattern I found was from a 1958 issue of Modern Knitting. These are boy’s gloves but I knitted the largest size and they fit me perfectly.
I used the vintage Knitmaster 4500 as that’s the machine that the pattern was written for so I didn’t have to fiddle about with the tensions to make it work on the modern standard gauge machine.
I think it took longer to sew them up than it did to actually knit them but I’m really pleased with how they turned out.
I didn’t think I would have quite enough of the sock yarn so to be on the safe side I did the cuffs with some plain grey 4ply that I had. It’s just as well I did because looking at how much of the patterned stuff there is left I definitely wouldn’t have got the cuffs out of it.
You can find the pattern here.
Talk to you later,
