Seeded Fingerless Gloves Pattern


Hi knitters!

I have finally finished the gloves I’ve been working on. It turned out way better than I expected. This pair is knitted using the seed and stockinette stitch and it measures about 11″ (28 cm).

This is size S/M.
Top and bottom view.


1 skein of medium weight yarn (157 yds/3oz)
4 size 8 (5mm) DPNs
Yarn needle


4 stitches=1 inch, 6 rows=1 inch


Cast on 39 sts. Knit the first row.

Note: If you are going to be changing the size of these gloves, be sure the number of stitches is a multiple of 2 plus 1.

Beginning Seed Stitch

Rd 1: p1, *k1, p1, rep from * to end of round.
Rd 2: k1, *p1, k1, rep from * to end of round.
Repeat these 2 rounds until you have 10 rows.


Rd 1: k2tog, knit to end of round. 38 sts.
Rd 2: knit.
Repeat these 2 rounds until there are 35 sts.

Knit 20 rounds.


Rd 1: M1, knit to end. 36 sts.
Rd 2: knit.
Repeat these 2 rounds once more. 37 sts.

Palm (seed stitch)

Rd 1: p1, *k1, p1, rep from * to end of round.
Rd 2: k1, *p1, k1, rep from * to end of round.
Repeat these two rounds until there are 10 rounds.

Thumb Hole

Here you will be knitting back and forth-not in the round.

Row 1 (WS): k1, *p1, k1, rep from * to end of row.
Row 2: repeat row 1.
Repeat these 2 rows until there are 10 rows.

Now you will continue back with knitting in the round.

Rd 1: p1, *k1, p1, rep from * to end of round.
Rd 2: k1, *p1, k1, rep from * to end of round.

Repeat these two rounds until there are 14 rounds.

Knit the next row and then bind off leaving an 8″ (20.5 cm) tail. Use yarn needle to weave in end.

There you go, enjoy!

  1. I am interested in knitting fingerless mitts and knitting in the round, not dpn
    Please help

  2. Hello! Made these today as a christmas present and they have turned out beautifully! thank you for the lovely easy instructions and a great pattern.

  3. Hi,
    Would these be able to be knitted flat and then sewn on the side? I know there would be a seam but would find them easier to knit. If it is possible should I add any stitches?

    • Yes these can be knitted flat. The pattern will need to be changed some (i.e., the main part of the gloves is done with the stockinette stitch so knitting flat will be row 1: knit and row 2: purl) but as for as the number of stitches you should be okay.

  4. I love these gloves. I have been looking for such a pattern so I can knit some for the elderly for my next project. thank you much.

    spent a while trying to download this pattern since I think it’s simply fabulous- anyway, finally got it and could print it but I have a very silly question: it doesn’t say to join in the round but all of the intructions say “End of round” so…..after casting on 39 sts. do I join and then work in the round??i know this is obvious to some knitters,but I am rather slow to get nuances and really need very specific direction- love these, just want to understand how to to them, many thanks for this pattern, adrienne

    • Yes, join in the round. The only part that is not knitted in the round is the thumb which is knitted back and forth. Otherwise knit in the round.
