Daisy Buchanan Gloves

Daisy Buchanan Gloves (1)

I am thrilled to share the second pattern from the winter accessories section of Kniterary Crochet: the Daisy Buchanan Gloves. Inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, these fingerless gloves are crocheted in rows and later seamed together, leaving an opening for the thumb. The combination of lace and ribbing provides two inches of negative ease, which make them stretchy and able to fit most adult women’s hands.

I mean, just look at the difference before they were put on:

It's crazy how narrow and different the Daisy Buchanan Glove appears when it isn't on a hand. #crochet #kniterary #ToshMerinoLight #lace

One of my favorite things about this pattern, other than the look itself, was that I was able to make them with the Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light I had left over from crocheting the Seven Rings Cowl. I’m one of those utilitarian people who hate throwing away even the smallest of yarn scraps, so being able to use the leftover 170 yards for this project felt awesome. Plus, I’m in love with the “Candlewick” colorway. It just seems so regal and opulent to me.
