By now, you should be pretty sure what will come next. Some of you may have even figured it out already! In any case, this week, I will take you all the way up to the thumb gusset and next week we will finish up the left gauntlet. Here are the directions for week 6:
*You should have just finished up your 4 rows of straight knitting. The next set of directions will be broken down by needle just like the directions in Clue #1.
Divide sts onto needles same as for right gantlet with 14 sts on Needle #1, 25 sts on Needle #2, and 13 sts on Needle 3.
Knit every round.
Needle #2 (Rosebud Lace Panel, 25 sts wide, OPTIONAL):
Rnd 1: k10, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k10
Rnd 2 (and every even rnd): Knit
Rnd 3: k9, k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk, k9
Rnd 5: k10, yo, ssk, yo, k3tog, yo, k10
Rnd 7: k11, yo, sl 1—k2tog—psso (aka. sk2p), yo, k11
Rnd 9: k2, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k11, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2
Rnd 11: k1, k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk, k9, k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk, k1
Rnd 13: k2, yo, ssk, yo, k3tog, yo, k11, yo, ssk, yo, k3tog, yo, k2
Rnd 15: k3, yo, sl 1—k2tog—psso (aka. sk2p), yo, k13, yo, sl 1—k2tog—psso, yo, k3
Rnd 16: Knit
Rnd 1: k2tog, yo, k2, yo, ssk, knit to end of rnd.
Rnds 2-4: Knit
Work all three needles (at the same time) until you have repeated the Lace Panel 3 times, then work rnds 1-8 one more time. You should have 3.5 repeats of the lace panel and 14 eyelets.
I will include directions for the thumb gusset and remaining parts of the gauntlet next week. After that, you will have a complete set of Dinner Gauntlets! I hope you all have a lovely week and happy knitting!
PS. What are everyone's thoughts on Downton so far? Is everyone enjoying Season 3? I know I am...
