Crochet is my favorite yarn art, however, I do enjoy knitting too and every so often I write a knit pattern. Sometimes I need to take a little break from crochet just to clear my head. The other night I took such a break and was looking for a little inspiration. Fortunately, my son’s girlfriend provided the inspiration — she needed a pair of warm fingerless gloves!
This is a super simple pattern and took less than 2 hours to finish in a bulky yarn and 9.0 mm needles. I didn’t have double pointed needles in the right size so I worked this flat and seamed them closed, but if you do, it will avoid the seam!
Simply Knit Fingerless Gloves
Bulky yarn #6 – 70 yards
Knitting Needles – 9.0 mm
Yarn needle for seam
Cast on 21 stitches
Rows 1: K2, P1 Rib
Row 2: K1, P2 Rib
Rows 3 to 5: Repeat Rows 1 and 2
Row 6: Knit across
Row 7: Purl across
Rows 8 to 27: Repeat Rows 6 and 7 to work stockinette
Rows 28 to 31: Repeat Rows 1 and 2
Bind off in Rib pattern. Fasten off leaving 18 – 24″ long end for seaming gloves.
Starting at fingertips, seam gloves for 2″, fasten off. Skip 1 1/2″ (for thumb opening), join yarn and continue seaming to wrist, fasten off.
That’s it! I told you it was super simple!
