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.

Materials

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

Gauge

4 stitches=1 inch, 6 rows=1 inch

Pattern

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.

Decreasing

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.

Increasing

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!

      Joan, you could get onto the computer site YouTube.com and look up a tutorial on Magic Loop Knitting. It is a marvellous way of using circular needles. It looks complicated to begin with but it really very easy.
      Here is a URL to begin with. https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CCwQtwIwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DIdSpc0EZpnk&ei=CAmAU8b-I8XykAW_zIGABQ&usg=AFQjCNFNYTgVOOQLQs0osgYnPIr_8keZLg&sig2=NCGAoSbYSNo-JDyzqNLVSA

    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?
    Thanks

      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.

    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
