Product Details

Sanquhar Gloves have captivated the Scottish and non-Scottish alike since the late 1800s when they were first created. These gloves were favored for riding and driving horses, playing the sport of curling, and looking smart as well! Several classic patterns have survived, most notably the Duke and Prince of Wales patterns. The mathematics of Sanquhar Gloves is always the same. The construction is unalterable, so that the only way to create different sizes is to change the gauge, or the number of stitches within the little boxes. To preserve the motifs, this pattern is sized by changing needle sizes, from size 0000 to size 2 (1.25 to 2.75 mm).

The yarn I have used is from UptonYarns, a beautiful yarn hand-dyed by Sarah Lake. It is a strong 3-ply yarn for Men's Medium and Large: 3 skeins each of 2 colors. For Child/Women sizes, use a fine sock yarn or lace yarn.
