In my internet sleuthing I have gathered literally thousands of images, plans, and patterns of things I would like to make or have for reference. Government documents, like the scans below, are invaluable resources for the maker when they are made public. Who would know how to better and more efficiently make a pair of riding gloves than the U.S. Cavalry. This design is the culmination of more than 110 years in the business.
Click the pattern for the full-sized image. Scale to fit the dimensions shown for the standard sizing or scale them to fit your hand, be it a tiny little paw or oversized ham (note the three sizes on the pattern).
Part of the fun is learning the names of the parts; I had no idea there was even such a thing as a quirk in a glove.
I hope to get around to making a pair soon myself but please let me know if you have any success when you try these. Thanks for reading and please click “Like” or leave a comment if you have one.
