Cockleshell Gloves

cockleshell montage

Pretty, slightly vintage-y gloves knitted in a gorgeous hand-dyed blend of Baby Alpaca, Silk and Cashmere from Juno Fibre Arts, available in two sizes (s/m, approx 17.5cm hand circumference and m/l, approx 19.5cm hand circumference). As the Alice Sock yarn has a very generous 400m / 100g it is possible to get 2 of the s/m pairs of gloves from a single skein, a bonus pattern is included for this purpose in case you get bored working the Cockleshell pattern. Called Silver Bells, they look like this, although are only written for the s/m size:

Instructions are also give for handwarmers in the Cockleshell pattern to make use of all of the skein if you knit the m/l size of the gloves - these come in two sizes, you can definitely get a s/m pair of Gloves and a m/l pair of Handwarmers from one skein, a pair each of m/l Gloves and Handwarmers should be possible (although we're not guaranteeing this!), especially if you shorten the Handwarmers slightly - they have generous cuffs as written and some people might prefer shorter a cuff.

Tension - approx. 36 sts and 45 rows to 10cm over st st in the round.

1 x 100g skein (400m / yds per skein) Juno Fibre Arts Alice Sock, 70% Alpaca, 20% Silk, 10% Cashmere or approximately 400 metres / 433 yards sock weight yarn.

2.25mm needles, either dpns or circs if you use the magic loop method, or the size required to give you the correct tension. The pattern is written for knitting on 4 dpns.

Instructions for stitch patterns used are written only.
