I created this pattern for knit fingerless gloves after making many pairs using patterns out there, but finding none that "hug" your hand. By adding a thumb wrap and using a ribbing stitch for the top portion of the pattern, these really fit like a glove should!
The pattern can fit a woman's small thru large glove sized hand, and a man's small to medium glove size. I hope you enjoy the pattern!
Step 1: Gather supplies
1 pair size 7 (4.5 mm) knitting needles. (Size 8 will also work)
1 skein Worsted Weight yarn, any color.
1 tapestry needle
All these supplies are available in the U.S. at JoAnn Fabrics stores and Michaels Craft stores. Total cost probably will not exceed $10.
I am an experienced knitter, and each glove takes me about 2-3 hours to make, depending on how many interruptions I get ;-)
Step 2: Cast on 24 or 28 stitches.
Step 3: Row 1
Instructions in this step are for the first row of ribbing.
**Knit one stitch.
Bring yarn from "back" to "front". First picture below shows yarn in back; second picture shows in front.
Purl one stitch.
Bring yarn from "front" to "back".
Repeat from ** all the way across to complete the row.
