Celtic Duke: Sanquhar gloves in duke pattern with Celtic Cross


Finally, I have been upload Celtic duke pattern on my Ravelry store. Maybe It was almost 3 years ago. I made sanquhar gloves for D’Arcy’ birthday. He wanted to put Celtic cross on the back of hand because his last name is Cross. I tried to accept all his request and it turns fingerless gloves in duke pattern with Celtic cross. It was my first sanquhar project and still he loves it. But, it’s bit unsatisfied to me.


Last winter, 3 years later since I made my first sanquhar, some of the members in online KAL group start talking about sanquhar pattern. When they were mentions gloves I made, it looks unique and something different. I started to make my gloves. I changed a bit of construction from traditional sanquhar gloves pattern. I change height of little finger and tried to avoid gaps on adjoin fingers. Celtic knots around cross is clear then first one, etc…

I’ve got help from 5 amazing knitters. They knitted total 6 pairs of Celtic duke with two different weight yarn in two language English and Korean.

NOTES:

  • The Duke pattern is from one of the traditional Sanquhar gloves. The basic Sanquhar glove pattern was created almost a century ago. The design is improved to include a Celtic Cross on the back of the hand and avoids a gap(hole) in the adjoining fingers.
  • Gauge is important if you want to get fitted size for your hand. please be patient to check correct gauge.
  • Conductive thread is for touch screens of your tablet or mobile device. It’s optional.

FINISHED SIZE: 
7 (7.5, 8, 8.5, 9)” / 17.5 (19, 20.5, 21.5, 23) cm. 
Shown size is 7.5”/ 19cm hand all around.

YARN: 
50g/±400yds of each colour of Lace weight or 100g/±420yds of each colour of Fingering weight.

Suggest lace weight yarn for smaller size from 7 – 8”/17.5 – 20.5cm and fingering weight yarn for larger size from 8 – 9”/ 20.5 – 23cm. It’s personal taste to choose yarn weight. But, it’s not easy to handle ticker yarn with size 0000 – 00 needles.
