Grandfather Clock is the fourth pattern released for my Time on my Hands e-book. These extremely basic gloves are perfect for knitters who’ve never tried gloves before. The simple styling is equally well appreciated by men who don’t want anything fancy on their hands. You can favorite and queue them on Ravelry.
The pattern is written in three sizes: 8 (9.25, 10)”/20.5 (23.5, 25.5) cm hand circumference. These are larger sizes since the glove is designed for men, however the smallest size should fit women as well. I think the slipped stitch ribbing in the cuffs would look pretty neat worked up in a more playful colorway. In this manly colorway the slipped stitch ribbing provides for a snug cuff that keeps the chill out and has just a little extra warmth to it.
The mitts are worked in Crystal Palace Mini Mochi, in their feldspar colorway. You’ll need 234-345 yards depending on the size you choose. In order to make the colors line up I had to find the same starting point in each of the two skeins, so keep that in mind if you’re subbing yarns.
The pattern is available on it’s own for $4 or as part of the e-book collection which gives a significant savings over buying the patterns individually.
