Keep your hands from getting Frosty with these Knit Snowman Gloves
It’s been cold and rainy at our house this week. Littlest has been incredibly frustrated that we are getting rain in November instead of snow. I keep trying to remind him that we live in Texas and snow doesn’t happen a lot for us.
But we can make all the snow related things we want. We’ve already decorated a snowy gingerbread train and house. We’ve made a few paper snowflakes. And it’s been cool enough to wear knit snowman hats and brand new snowman gloves.
These knit gloves go perfectly with the snowman hat that I made last year. The snowmen are the same size, with one snowman on each glove. I stitched these up in an icy blue color that seemed wintry and frosty. And then I added 3 blue buttons to the front of each of my snowmen.
The snowman gloves are knit in the round using 5mm double pointed needles (size 8 US). The pattern is made to fit an adult woman, but would also fit teenagers. Gauge for the pattern is a 4″x4″ square is 18 stitches and 24 rows. Yardage for the pattern is about 120 yards of medium worsted weight yarn.
The pattern uses cables to create the snowman shapes. C4B means to move 2 stitches to the cable needle, hold the work in back, knit 2 stitches, then knit the 2 stitches on the cable needle. This is a cable worked over a total of 4 stitches. C4F is similar to C4B, but you hold the cable need in front.
