Jeremy's Knucks

Last year I made Jeremy some fingerless gloves for Father's Day.  He has worn them lots (much to my delight!) but they are actually a bit thick and quite warm.  I decided he needed a new pair of knucks that weren't quite so thick and ones he could wear while he plays his guitar.

This was one benefit of him going away the week before his birthday.  I could work on them without him seeing!  I don't know whether it was my fried brain from single parenting it or what, but I didn't even notice that I read one part of the pattern wrong until I was in the middle of the second knuck.  This causes you to face a decision.  Knit it wrong again or start over on both of them.  I chose the first option seeing as how my time was running out and crossed my fingers that they would still fit.

They do fit, although I might fix them for him anyway because it just bugs me.  We'll see.  I'm sure I used it last time, but I had to refresh my brain on the sewn bind off method.  I knit these up using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK in gray.  Love that yarn!

  1. Very nice! These are so practical, and look good, too. I love how you made the pattern work even though you did it differently than intended. That way they're truly unique!

  2. Jen,
    I want you to make some of these for me to give to Aaron for Christmas and my brother. They deliver the mail out in the cold and never wear gloves because they can't grip the mail and these would be perfect.

  3. These look great, and I have no idea what you did wrong.

  4. Jen, These are awesome! Do you plan on selling these? Our son plays the guitar, especially when they are hanging outside their place or camping out... and these would be a great gift idea. If you do, please let me know how much and if you might be able to do them before Christmas.

    Blessings & Aloha!
