      Thank you for the compliment. The pattern was created by myself specifically for my lord.
      The site posted below shows how to create your own pattern for a complete glove. I have
      not added the thumb piece, but left the opening. I removed the pinky finger and adjusted
      the opening there. All other construction instructions are the same.


      This site got me started in the right direction. It helps to make a mock-up in felt wool to
      get the proper fit, as it mimics leather. You can use recycled leather but watch for dye
      leakage. The very first archery glove I made for myself ended up leaching dye and my hand
      would be black and blue after use!

      There is also a Yahoo!Group for glovemaking called the Society of St. Anne. Very
      informative. There are books too.

      Have fun,
