Hi - I recently purchased a pattern for a pair of gloves, which I tried to make this last week. I’ve made a few pairs of mittens before, which came out great, but this was my first attempt at gloves. I was so disappointed at how they came out!
I followed the pattern very carefully. To avoid the dreaded “ladders,” I swapped the first and last stitches for each finger. I was sure to pull extra tight as I knit around each finger. I even picked up more stitches than the pattern called for. But in the end, there were large holes/gaps between the fingers. I went back after and tried to sew them up from the inside, but they look terrible.
I’d like to try some other gloves at some point, but am wondering if anyone has any tricks/tips for knitting gloves so that they come out as lovely as the photo in the pattern? Your help is appreciated!
