For the finishing touch to your outfit, fingerless gloves meet the protocol of your costume while providing practicality and freedom of fingers for those Jane Austen tea parties and needlework by firelight. Don’t let them intimidate you! These “Queen Anne’s Lace Gloves,” designed especially for beginners, are very easy and quick to make–even though thread and a small hook are used. Worked in rounds from the knuckle edge down, the thumb shaping is extremely simple and there are only three of the most basic crochet stitches used in the entire project!
Cuff length is adjustable and an optional woven tie allows you to customize to fit your wrist. Or just let the lacy wrist flare out loosely for a Romantic look. Shown in a vintage-style ecru, make them in black, pink, or buff for equally historically accurate accessories. (Appropriate for Georgian, Regency, and Romantic outfits!) Skill Level: easy. Designed by Kristen Stoltzfus of Joys in Stitches exclusively for Sense & Sensibility customers. Available for instant download as an ePattern!
Note for European and Australian customers: Some crocheting terms are different from the US. Thanks to customer Antonia L, who shared a great link to translate terms from American to British (also used in AUS): http://crochet.about.com/od/conversioncharts/a/termtranslate.htm
