GLOVES:

Sizes: Ladies’ Medium

Materials: DROPS ALPACA from Garnstudio
100 g color no. 517, gray

DROPS 3 mm double pointed needles, or size needed to obtain correct gauge.

Gauge: 24 sts x 30 rows in rib = 10 x 10 cm.

Rib: * K 2, P 2 *. Repeat from * - *.

Pattern: See chart (1 chart = 1 repeat). The pattern is seen from the right side.

Gloves: Cast on 83 sts on double pointed needles; join and place a marker at the join. Knit pattern as follows: 18 sts rib - start the row with 2 purl sts and attach a marker between these 2 purl sts, Pattern 1 (= center of the glove), 52 sts rib (begin with 2 purl sts). When the work measures 24 cm dec 24 sts evenly distributed across rib sts, but not in Pattern 1 = 59 sts.
Start rib pattern anew so that there are 2 P sts on each side of Pattern 1. Measure the work from here. When the work measures 2 cm inc for a «wedge» for the thumb as follows: inc 1 st on each side of the marker, these 2 sts = «wedge» for the thumb. Then inc 1 st on each side of these 2 sts every other row 6 times = 14 sts in the «wedge» (knit the increased sts into the «wedge» in rib as you go along). Now put these 14 sts + 1 st on each side (= 16 sts) on a st holder and cast on 2 new sts behind the «wedge» = 59 sts on the dp needles. When the work measures 11 cm inc 1 st in Pattern 1 = 60 sts, and knit Pattern 1 sts in rib. Then knit the next row as follows: 2 sts over the «wedge», 21 sts, put 13 sts on a st holder for the little finger, cast on 1 new st and knit the remaining 24 sts. Knit 4 rows over these 48 sts. Then put the new sts and 16 sts on each side of this on a st holder.

Index finger: Knit 15 sts and pick up 1 new st = 16 sts. Join and knit 4 cm over these 16 sts, bind off.

Center finger: Knit 8 sts from the underside of the hand, inc 1 new st, knit 8 sts from the upper side of the hand and inc 3 sts at the index finger = 20 sts. Join and knit 4 cm over these 20 sts, bind off.

Ring finger: Knit 8 sts from the underside of the hand, inc 1 new st, knit 8 sts from the upper side of the hand and inc 3 sts at the center finger = 20 sts. Join and knit 4 cm over these 20 sts, bind off.

Little finger: Knit 13 sts from the st holder and inc 3 sts at the ring finger = 16 sts. Join and knit 4 cm over these 16 sts, bind off.

Thumb: Knit 16 sts from the st holder, inc 4 sts in the sts behind the «thumb-wedge» = 20 sts. Join and knit 5 rows, bind off.

Knit the other glove in the same fashion, but reverse all shaping.
