Frontenac

  • A knitting pattern by Debbie Sullivan

    Named for Frontenac County in Eastern Ontario, these gloves are designed with cold Canadian winters in mind. They are knit in our Andante superwash merino, using a smaller needle size than is usual for a worsted weight yarn in order to create a dense fabric that will block the wind and keep your fingers cozy.

    There is something very satisfying about creating a perfectly-fitted glove, so this pattern includes three sizes for palm circumferences from 7–9¼". The two different cable patterns used to give these gloves texture are easily memorized, and are given in both written and chart form.
