Bo Peep revival and new pattern edition

18 Oct

It turns out that there is a bit of a revival of our Loumms Year of Socks pattern, Bo Peep!!

This pattern was originally released in April 2009 as a special part of our Year of Socks and there are now quite a few Bo Peeps floating around Ravelry.

In the past few weeks we have been contacted by many people showing an interest in these lacy gloves so I thought Id take the opportunity to edit the pattern properly to make life easier for everyone!


All the links have now been updated to the new PDF copy but just in case I missed one I’ve noted on the pattern that it is a 2nd edition.

Hopefully all of the errata has been included and brand new ‘Bo Peeps’ will be popping up everywhere with minimal fuss!!! I might even knit myself my third pair!



So you can now download the new edition of Bo Peep here and also on Ravelry soon.

    I feel very dumb because I still don’t get it how you count the needles. I have read the old instructions as well as the new ones trying to figure out how you’ve done it before and how you’re doing it now, and the errata doesn’t explain it. I’ve been knitting the left hand glove and I join at the top of the keyhole in the beginning of the round 2 (or at the end of the flat round 1) and have the first 16 sts on my #1 needle (palm side being #2 and the thumb side the third). According to your reversed thumb set up you count differently and the question is how do you share the stitches between needles, how do you count the needles and where do you start a new round? The pattern is coming nicely and I could do the left hand like you’re supposed to do the right hand, but I’m really curious about this.

    Hi Jen,
    It’s not dumb at all!

    The thumb set up is able to be worked wherever you want your thumb to sit.

    If you think the thumb should be set up using the stitches you have on needle three then follow the established pattern to where you think the thumb sits for you and knit your 8 stitches using your scrap yarn, transfer them back to the respective needle and then knit back over them using the working yarn and continue the pattern.
    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the answer, it just didn’t help figuring out how YOU do the counting, because using my counting method and your thumb instructions means that the left thumb is on the wrong side of my hand and the right one on the back side of my hand. As mentioned earlier it is possible to place the thumb wherever I want but if I do that, I have problems with getting the fingers right…. I even started knitting the right glove but the problem remains. I’ve been thinking that joining in the round means “normal” round knitting and also the beginning of counting rounds and needles but it seems that’s not the case here. I’d like to follow the instructions but at the moment I’m stuck. Is it the reversed thing that I’m somehow missing?

    Hi again,
    I’m going to re-knit the pattern as its been a long time since I’ve looked at it so bear with me and I’ll get back to you with the correct information.
    I think previously the instructions given were taken as a guide and the fingers and thumb were knit where required.
    I appreciate your notes so will look to changing them on the errata page as soon as I’ve knit up a new pair.
    Thanks again!

    Hi Jen.

    I start the round at the centre of the keyhole with 16 sts on each needle.

    The first 2 sets of 8 rows are worked.

    Right Hand: (following left hand as written in edition 2, see errata)

    there are 12 sts worked so the thumb sits on the last 4 sts of needle 1 and the first 4 sts of needle 2.

    Right hand: (following left hand as written in edition 2, see errata)

    there are 12 sts worked so the thumb sits on the last 4 sts of needle 1 and the first 4 sts of needle 2.

    **Left hand: (following right hand as written in edition 2, see errata)

    work to the last 4 sts of needle 2 then work the thumb set up over the final four sts on needle 2 and the first four sts of needle 3.
    Continue the round in established pattern. **

    Next round will be round 2 of the lace.

    This means ignoring the notes section regarding the right hand thumb being worked on round 8 of the second repeat.

    The fingers should read

    ***First Round: k 32 sts ***
    First Round: k all sts

    This should clear things up and I’ll get the pattern changed as soon as possible.

    Thanks again
