Shwook gloves Gloves Knitting Pattern

Shwook gloves

Pattern Description

Shwook gloves are designed to match Shwook hat which I designed for Shetland Wool Week 2014.

Using recommended yarn and 3.50 mm needles a 10 cm square, is 31 stitches x 37 rows over Fair Isle pattern, after blocking. Thinner needles will give smaller gloves.


Materials Required

EITHER Jamieson & Smith Shetland 2 ply jumper weight, 115m/25g ball

OR Jamieson's of Shetland: Spindrift 2ply, 105m/25g ball

5 colours - one 25g ball of each colour is plenty but pattern includes minimum weight required in case knitters have small amounts to use up.

The pattern gives four colourways but if knitters want to choose alternative colours either 3 dark colours with 2 light colours or 3 light colours with 2 dark colours are needed.

Shwook hat

Shwook hat was designed for Shetland Wool Week 2014, the year I was patron, and is the inspiration for its name. 

It uses either Jamieson of Shetland's Spindrift or Jamieson & Smith's 2ply Jumper weight yarn.

This is a slouch hat so, as long as the rib is a comfortable fit, the Fair Isle tension is not crucial.
