These gloves were originally inspired by a small antique motif. I've included the instructions for this original motif and have diagrammed the large fingerless gloves.
These gloves can be made from either size 10 or size 20 thread. (In the pictures above, the white gloves are size 20 thread and the others are size 10 thread.) This project uses basic rings and chains as well as a "non-double-stitch" chain such as a lock-chain or Josephine chain. These chains are no more difficult than a basic chain and If requested I can include a handout on how to make these chains. Instructions are also easy to find on the internet for these stitches.
This pattern is also included in my booklet which covers 15 different variations and projects which can be created by adapting the original antique pattern. The listing for a PDF of that booklet is available here:
You may not copy or distribute these patterns. However, you are free to give show or give away any anything made from these patterns. You may sell items made using my patterns, but must give credit to me as the designer and may not sell them online. If you teach tatting and would like to include any of my patterns in your class, please contact me first.
Feel free to convo me with any additional questions or email me at jessica [!at] snapdragonlace.com.
