If you're like me and you whipped up a hat modeled after the one Hermione wore in the Deathly Hallows Graveyard scene, you may have thought, "now if I just had a matching set of mittens..."

I made this hat last month and had plenty of leftover yarn so I decided to try my hand at a pair of gloves. I wanted to make a set using the same stitch pattern as I used in the hat so they would coordinate. Unfortunately I couldn't find a pattern that matched what I was envisioning, so I ended up making it up. Here's the pattern I concocted...

**Supplies**

Yarn

Size 5 DP needles (preferably 5 needles, but 4 will do)

2 stitch markers

Yarn needle

**Instructions**

Cuff:

Cast on 44 stitches. Distribute them over DP needles, making sure each needle has an even number of stitches

Join in the round, making sure not to twist the work.

K1 P1, repeat to the end of row

Continue this pattern for 3 inches

Note: When creating the thumb gusset for the left hand - there will be 16 stitches, then a place marker, a variable number of stitches, then another place marker, followed by a 26 stitches. When creating the thumb gusset for the right hand - there will be 4 stitches, then a place marker, a variable number of stitches, then another place marker, followed by a 38 stitches.

Hand Decrease:

The previous 2 rows knit should have been repeats of P2, K2. The number in parentheses is the number of stitches you should have after completing the row.

Row 1: S1, P2tog, psso, P1, K2, *P2, K2* repeat 3 more times, S1, K2tog, psso, K1, P2, *K2, P2* repeat 3 more times (40)

Row 4: *P2, K2* repeat 8 more times (36)

Row 5: S1, P2tog, psso, P1, K2, *P2, K2* repeat 2 more times, S1, K2tog, psso, K1, P2, *K2, P2* repeat 2 more times (32)

Row 10: *P2, K2* repeat 2 more times, *K2, P2* repeat 2 more times (24)

Bind off using Kitchener closure.

Thumb:

You should have a hole with 16 stitches on your holding yarn and an edge from the hand part of the glove. Pick up 4 stitches from the hand portion. Slip the stitches from the holding yarn as well as the picked up stitches onto DP needles. Distribute 3 of the picked up stitches on the needle from which you will begin knitting, these will be the first 3 stitches of your row. Place the last picked up stitch on the last knitting needle. This will be the last stitch of your row. Recall that when you moved the stitches to the holding yarn you had just done this with them (K1, P2, K2, P2, K2, P2, K2, P2, K1). Now you have 3+16+1. Therefore you should begin with this sequence so you continue correctly within the pattern:

Row 1: *P2, K2* repeat 4 times (20)

Row 2 & 3: *K2, P2* repeat 4 times (20)

Row 4 & 5: *P2, K2* repeat 4 times (20)

Row 6-9: Continue to knit in the round and follow the moss stitch pattern, repeating rows 2-5 (20)

Row 10-13: Continue to knit in the round and follow the moss stitch pattern, repeating rows 2-5 (20)

Row 14: S1, P2tog, psso, P1, K2, P2, K2, S1, K2tog, psso, K1, P2, K2, P2 (16)

Row 15: P2, K2, P2, K4, P2, K2, P2 (16)

Row 16: K2, P2, K2, P4, K2, P2, K2 (16)

Row 17: S1, P2tog, psso, P1, K2, P2, S1, K2tog, psso, K1, P2, K2 (12)

Row 18 & 19: K2, P2, K2, P2, K2, P2 (12)

Row 20: S1, K2tog, psso, K1, P2, S1, K2tog, psso, K1, P2 (8)

Bind off using Kitchener closure.

Happy Knitting!

Hello Jackie...My name is Dzintra...my friend Georgina who has no blog would like to make a comment to you about the Ron Weasley blanket she has made...I have copied and pasted her comment to you hereunder...

ReplyDeleteDear Jackie, This is a message from Georgina in Australia. I have just finished knitting a Harry Potter blanket for my 10 year old grandson, Finn, following your wonderfully researched and presented pattern. I actually made it a bit smaller (8x8) as FInn likes to read curled up in a lap rug. I thought I was being careful sewing up, but some of the squares seemed to have shifted their position a bit. I'm sure Mrs Weasley won't mind, and Ron could always magic it back if it were a problem. I have photographed the quilt and would like to send you a copy. If you are interested, please let me know how through Dzintra. Hoping to hear from you...Georgina

Thank you Jackie...Dzintra

Hi Georgina, I'm so glad you enjoyed making the blanket! I would love to see what you came up with. And I'm sure Mrs. Weasley would approve of any blanket made with love! Can you upload the pictures online?

DeleteJackie

Hi Jackie...Dzintra here..I have forwarded your comment on to Georgina. As she has no blog she was wondering if she could please have your email address so that she can email the photo. Her email is cleaver@mttennyson.net

ReplyDeleteShe is eagerly awating to hear from you...Many thanks, Dzintra
