As we’ve been designing and knitting gloves this fall, there have been a few murmurs in the background from the men in our lives: When are you going to do a man’s glove? We ignored the murmurs until we saw Brooklyn Tweed’s new Loft yarn. Perfect! We could play with a new yarn and create a man’s glove that can easily be knit up in time for the holidays. Thus, the Foxhall Glove:
These classic gloves are named after a favorite neighborhood in Washington, DC, distinguished by handsome homes and large areas of parkland. The gloves are urbane and stylish without being fussy. We call it a man’s glove, but we provide a range of five sizes that can accommodate a woman’s hand or yarn substitutions and changes in gauge. We also included optional instructions for “pop top” texting thumbs and index finger.
