Out of print glove knitting book

There was a well known glove knitting instructional book that has been out of print for a long time, but I can’t remember author’s name…any ideas?


Welcome to the forum!
@DaylilyDawn do I remember that you are a prolific glove knitter? Does this sound familiar?

Have you tried looking at Amazon or ABE books or your public library? Sometimes seeing the cover is enough to identify the book.
I wish you good luck in your search.

Thank you ! I have tried those, except not specifically Abebooks. I will try that next.
It was an old book, but a treasure filled with measurements, stitch numbers and weights of yarn— priceless resource. The author really knew her stuff.

ebay might be a source too if you search “vintage knitting books gloves.” I’m finding pamphlets and some books. The book sounds like a fabulous resource.

Different yarn weights and sizes reminds me of Ann Budd who has a book containing glove patterns, The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns.

Hooray! Ann Budd’s books are fabulous. I’ve used the ones for all types of sweaters in different gauges and sizes.
Have fun working all sorts of gloves.

SalmonMac the book I have for gloves is Patons Next Steps Seven Mittens and Gloves… It is a small booklret type, I got it at Joann’s along time ago, 2010 is the date in the booklet.


Thanks, DaylilyDawn. Those Patons booklets are invaluable.
