Ghost Train Gloves: in this unnatural valley

Saturday, May 01, 2010

“Do but listen for a moment to the wind in this unnatural valley while we speak so low” (The Signalman – Dickens)

$2.50 US Free

Worked very hard most of the day to get this pattern finished - I really like how it turned out. I think I will be making myself a pair of these for this winter when I next get a moment :)

The straight rib and twisting cable design of these gloves inspired the title and theme of this pattern.
Pattern contains full written pattern for
  • knitting gloves in the round (added 9june2011)
  • knitting gloves flat
I have used various 8-12ply yarns with this pattern and as the gloves are ribbed to stretch and fit your hand/wrist any wool of your choosing should work
5mm knitting needles (straight, circular, or dps to your preference)
A cable needle (or double pointed needle or crochet hook)
Skills Needed
You will want to be confident in knit and purl before starting this pattern. It should be possible to learn the rest on the go. Links to videos showing these stitches are provided for if you have any having trouble
  • cast on
  • knit
  • purl
  • decrease
  • knit into the back of a st
  • slip sts onto a cable needle, and knit them off again
Also, the DUST team monthly sale is 'May Flowers' so during this month this pattern is only $2
