Downton Abbey Mystery KAL Clue #6

Hi everyone and welcome to Week #6 of the Downton Abbey KAL!

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.

Needle #1: 

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

Needle #3:

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...

  1. Shouldn't Left Gauntlet be a mirror image of Right Gauntlet? If so, Needle 1 and Needle 3 should be opposite of Right Gauntlet with Needle 1 13 sts and Needle 3 having 14 sts.

  2. I am absolutely loving it, with the exception of last week's episode. Just too depressing...I understand that it's needed for story continuity, but I just don't want to watch everyone moping around for an hour. I hope that tonight they're more back to normal!

  3. Hi Violet G-

    One stitch won't make a huge amount of difference, but if you want to swap the #'s, you certainly can. The # of sts on those needles isn't particularly important, the placement of the eyelets is more-so. :)

    Happy knitting!

  4. I am confused with what we are supposed to do with needle 3. Do we repeat rows 1-4 to get the eyelets? Thanks!

  5. Here's my "big" question ... will you be providing a printable copy of the pattern at the end of our KAL? I'd love to knit another pair (already bought the Christmas at Downton colorway from JBW!) and didn't know if I should go through the blog to print the clues individually or if you'll have a complete pattern ready for me at the end!

    This has been great to knit and makes watching each week so much more fun! Thanks, Kristen!

  6. Hi Linda!

    Yes, I will be publishing the pattern next month in a fully edited and formatted version on the Free Patterns Page of the JBW Website. I'll make sure something goes up in our newsletter about it! :)


  7. Hi Cindiluhu!

    Yes, treat the eyelets on the 2nd gauntlet just like the first gauntlet and repeat rows 1-4 until you have 14 eyelets.
