Here are the upper and lower case alphabet charts, I use for knitting Dales gloves. They could be used for anything where you need letters that are only a few rounds/rows deep. These are trickier to figure out than alphabet charts where you have a few more rounds for manoeuvre.
Thought I’d share them here, as there’s not much like them, online. Some of the lower case letters in particular are straightforward copies of ones on extant 19thC gloves. Others, I had to make up “in the style of”. Click on the links to see as PDFs. Feel free to use these.
The gloves pictured are a child’s pair, with the name “Mary” on the welt. I decyphered them several years back but have yet to publish the pattern. There will be ‘Mary’ glove kits available at ‘The Luddites’ stand at the British Wool Show and the Armley show, both in June. And I will get on with publishing the pattern on Ravelry – promise!
