for the love of gloves

27 Sep

The one thing I love most about knitted socks is the versitility in patterns and styles you can use to make them unique,

There can be cables, lace, slipped sts, not to mention the huge range of different heels and toes however it never occured to me that you can put the same practice to a pair of gloves until I spotted these beauties by Julia Mueller’s Laris Designs at Knit Nation!

Julia adds stlye and individuality to each of her glove designs, she also occasionally changes the original structure and when she does the results are amazing, like these Glitten Gloves, my particular favourite!!!

The detailed cables on Rococo are so interesting, especially as they creep their way up the finger! This I find fascinating as fingers are always the hardest part for me to knit on a pair of gloves never mind with cables too!!!

Another one of her re structured designs is Guinevere, a glove knitted from the tip of the thumb out!! Genius!!

Julia’s most recent pattern is Chimera, which looks like a cosy warn mitt for the upcoming winter months!

 

Not only is she a really talented designer she also has great taste in yarn choosing to knit a lot of her patterns in Wollmeise!!

Julia also does KAL’s from her ravelry group page too!!

Thanks Julia for some truly inspiring designs!!!

    I love Julia’s designs!! I’m going to be knitting her Autumn Leaves mitts just as soon as I find the right second yarn for it (they’re worked in this amazing double-knit colourwork design that I can’t wait to try!)
