I knitted these 2 pairs of gloves with silver metallic thread through them. The stripped blue and grey pair are the large size. They are also my first ever completed knitting project. The smaller purple gloves are a birthday present for my friend, even though its totally the wrong time of year (its summer over here).

The silver thread was just knitted in with the wool. It needs to be pulled tight every now and then. I found joining the yarn back up abit confusing at first, but it gets easier to figure out. Heres the pattern. Enjoy!

Thanks for the pattern. I really love your gloves. Your pattern is much easier to understand than knucks which I had a hard time following and ended up frogging my work. So it's knitted flat and then all the fingers are seamed. Correct?

I knitted them using 4 ply merino baby wool. I'm not sure what the label is, but its unlikely that the wool is avaliable anywhere other than NZ or Australia anyway.
The baby wool is softer than normal wool, which is great if your skin is sensitive to yarns.

the gloves are knitted kinda flat. They start to fold together with the first finger. When all the knitting is done you only need to stitch up the side seams and the fingers are already attached. I was going to knit the Knucks pattern too, but found this one instead, and it works well.

The stripes were knitted in rows of 4, which works well with the increasing of the thumb.

I have big hands and made myself the larger pattern. Next time I might try the smaller size and just using a larger needle size for more fitting gloves.

Thanks heaps for the great comments  : )
