Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit in the round
  • pick up and knit stitches

Pattern Description:

This idea came about after a joke my Dad kept making, about cutting the tip off of the index finger of a pair of gloves so he could keep them on when out taking photos.

I have designed the gloves to avoid getting those little holes at the base of the fingers and thumbs that you often end up with when knitting gloves, as I hate having to close these all up after!

As my Dad's camera has a wheel on the back, I left the tip of the thumb free too for ease of use. However, they are also very useful when using an iPhone or smartphone! Because of the way the pattern is knitted, you can decide which fingertips you want to keep free (if any).

These gloves are a snug fit, however I would recommend your recipient trying them on as you are making them as everyone's fingers are different lengths.

Step by step the pattern talks you through the process to make a very well fitted pair of gloves! With the option of leaving any fingertips free these are suitable for gamers, photographers, or anyone that likes to be able to use their phone easily in the winter.
