Gully Gloves


Gully gloves are so versatile, you will just have to make a whole batch of them! They are sproingy, comfy and knit up in two shakes of a lamb’s tail.

This simple pattern offers mix and match styles: short or long arm, short or long garter cuff, or no garter cuff at all. Thumb or no thumb? It’s all up to your taste!

These gloves are knit from the bottom to the top with a worsted weight yarn. The garter cuff is knitted on to live stitches. There is no gusset and no sewing is required. These gloves have a slightly visible seam.
