Belle Ruffle Gloves

September 12, 2010

Neo-Victorian inspired ruffled fingerless gloves.
Each glove features three buttons and a delicate bell ruffle.

This gorgeous, smoky gray superwash yarn if delightfully soft
and springy with fantastic stitch definition for those ruffles.
I’m so happy with the choice!

Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash
[100% superwash wool; 100g/220yd]
MC: #816 Gray
CC: #815 Black

MC ≈ 165 yds
CC ≈ small amount

• US size 7 (4.5mm) circular needle or long straight needles
• Set of five US size 7 (4.5mm) double-point needles

• Six approx. 5/8” buttons
• Tapestry needle sized to fit through buttonholes
• Row counter (optional)
• Stitch markers
• Scrap yarn
• Pins

20 sts = 4 inches in stockinette

One Size

6.5” wrist circumference (will stretch)

Tips for this project:

• For best results, work a basic knit bind off with size 11 needle.
• Do opt for the  long tail cast-on, it makes a very nice top edge.

• Use a large eye needle with a sharp point when weaving in ends.  Thread the yarn tails through the purl bumps along an inside row of the same color (piercing the fibers of the knitted stitches) for one inch, then back the same way.  Give the fabric a little stretch then cut yarn tails short, right next to the fabric.

• Make the hand and thumb as long as you like for custom finger coverage.
• Adjust gauge and needle size for petite or larger wrists and hands.
• Extended soaking and heavy blocking is not necessary or recommended for this project.

    Hi there, I am wanting to knit these awesome gloves but I don’t know what CC and MC are. Could someone please tell me?

    • December 28, 2010 4:12 pm

      MC: Main Color (yarn)
      CC: Contrasting Color (yarn)

      In the photos, MC is Gray and CC is Black. Hope that helps!

        Ok thanks 🙂 Also, do you have to do long-tail cats on because I can’t do it. Can I just do the finger cast-on instead?

      • December 28, 2010 4:41 pm

        I recommend the long-tail because of the extra yarn in each stitch. Some methods will cause the edge to roll, so you may want to knit an extra row before working the ruffle if using a different method. Whatever gives you a desirable edge will work fine!
