And I like them in many different ways: short, long, with buttons, with a lace pattern, with lots of embellishment, but I also love them as simple as possible.
I very much like to dress up and look fancy, but at times I do like the minimalist, no-nonsense look with maybe a little design element here and there.
The Leah Gloves, with small detail at the top of the glove, perfectly fit the bill!
The Leah Gloves are knitted flat, and later seamed at the side using the mattress stitch. You will find a few increases at the sides to make the glove flare out a bit so it will gently fit over your upper arm. The main stitch is stockinette, and you can see just a smidge of detailing at the top of the glove:
The Leah Gloves are pretty long, but you can stop at any length you want and shorten them up or even make them a little bit longer.
You can use any worsted weight yarn you like, as long as you have 140 yards. My favorite yarns to use for this glove were Cascade Venezia Worsted, shown above in grey, and Rittenhouse Merino 5-ply by Manos del Uruguay shown in reddish purple. But really, pick out any worsted weight or heavy DK weight yarn you want, and you will be just fine!
You can wear the gloves all stretched out over your hand and forearm, or scrunched up to shorten them a bit.
Isn't Adrienne doing such a good job modeling the gloves?
