I’m about to go see Avengers: Endgame in a few hours, so it’s appropriate that I just completed the Infinity Gauntlet last night. My nephew had the electronic gauntlet on his birthday wish list. I decided that I would just make him one. (I bought the electronic one too, I’m not that lame of an aunt.)
I searched online for a pattern and found this cute kit on Etsy from AmigurumiBarmy. The kit came with everything needed to make your own gauntlet, even a hook! The shop is in the UK, but it actually arrived quicker than I would have thought.
Since I was making this for my 3 year old nephew, I tried to size it smaller. The instructions recommend using a smaller hook and smaller yarn for children. Well, I just used the smaller hook (3 mm), so it just fits my small hands, but will likely still be huge on my nephew. I figured the kit came with yarn, so I’d use the yarn provided.
The instructions were pretty good. I think there was only really one place where I was a bit confused on what I should do, so I just winged it. Perhaps a few more step by step pictures would help for this pattern.
With shipping the kit ended up costing about $40, so it’s not cheap. The shop also just sells the pattern, and just the gems, so you could probably save some money buying just certain pieces if you like. Overall, I felt like it was worth it though.
