View Full Version : Need pattern suggestions for gloves

10-03-2009, 09:38 PM
I have come across two 50 gram balls (110 yards each) of KnitPicks Andean Treasure, 100% Baby Alpaca Sport Weight yarn. I can totally feel these being knit into gloves, but I am so not good at picking patterns and matching them to yarn on hand.

Any pattern suggestions? Please?!? I'm itching to get started!

Thanks so much!

Do you want gloves with fingers? Fingerless? Mittens? People use the term gloves interchangeably sometimes so I want to make sure.

I'd prefer gloves with fingers, but I'm willing to go fingerless since I only have 220 yards. Most of the patterns I've found on Ravelry seem to use a lot more yarn than I have. Thanks!

Here are some sport-weight mittens.

Here are some w/the beginning of fingers, you can always finish the fingers.

I forgot to check yardage, so make sure you look at that. Maybe you can adjust the cuff length so you need less then the pattern requires.

This is where Ravelry comes in really handy. You can sort patterns by yarn weight and yardage as well as pattern. If you aren't a member I suggest joining. Here's a few I found on there and I've included the outside link in case you aren't a member.

Thank you all for the help! I think I'm going to go with the J Crew gloves - they look pretty simple for my first gloves.

Have a great day, everyone!

This may also be of help to you since you can use any gauge I believe.
