Pattern Description:

This knitting pattern makes a quick, cute, textured pair of fingerless gloves that will keep your hands and wrists warm but your fingers free, whether it's in a chilly office or at an ever-so-slightly nippy spring picnic.

The 6-page pattern includes simple charts, using knit and purl stitches only relatively easy stuff! (One test-knitter said the pattern would make a good introduction to charts.) Written directions are also included, for knitters who prefer words to charts.

The fingerless gloves are knit in the round from the patterned cuff to the finger-edge, with an option for a rolled-edge cuff edging. The body of the fingerless gloves has a raised diamond pattern formed by purl stitches on a field of stockinette stitch. Gauge and yarn weight are used to adjust sizing.

Gauge:

For light worsted/DK yarn 5 sts/inch (makes a size small) OR for heavy worsted/aran yarn 4.5 sts/inch (makes a size large)

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • women's small (8 inches long, 7 inches in circumference)
  • women's large (8 inches long, 8 inches in circumference)

Materials:

  • 110 yds of approximately worsted weight yarn
  • Set of 4 double-pointed knitting needles in US size 7 (or size to get gauge with your yarn)
  • 2 stitch markers
  • waste yarn (about 6 inches)
  • yarn needle (for placing stitches on waste yarn and weaving in ends)
