How to fix hole in knitted gloves (duplicate stitch)
Sewing closed a hole in a glove
To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- Mend a hole in a glove or mitten.
To document your completion of the BB, provide proof of the following as pictures or a video (less than two minutes):
- The hole in the glove or mitten before mending.
- Tools and materials you will use for the mend.
- Mending in progress.
- The newly mended hole in your mitten or glove.
For winter chores, I wear two pairs of gloves; a lined cotton work glove on the outside, and a thinner fleece-type glove under that. As you can see, the brown work gloves have become very worn, especially the right-hand glove.
Rather than replace them, I decided to mend them. I used two different techniques, patching the hole in the red work glove lining and darning the rest of the holes.
I used part of an old sock for the patch and embroidery thread for the darning.
