If i cast on 24 stitches am i suppose to have 20 stitches when i bind off?
Can you post another picture of where to put the needle when sewing up the gloves (perhaps with a light colored yarn)? I'm new to knitting and my finished edge isn't very neat.
Hi Lovepitt4,<br>I found this drawing that will hopefully help you. Thanks for trying my pattern!<br>https://rensfibreart.files.wordpress.com/2010/04/join-1.jpg
It is perfect. Thank you!
<p>do you have any more images or advice about sewing the thumb? I'm lost!</p>
<p>Hi CathyM97,</p><p>Maybe this little sketch will help? Let me know if it does, and I'll add it to the instructable. Thanks for trying my pattern!</p>
<p>Very helpful! That's what I was trying but I think the thumb &quot;hole&quot; was too narrow for me. I added an extra 2 rows on the thumb rows(the rows with the extra 10 stitches). I'm on the K1P1 ribbing now. I'll let you know how it goes and THANK YOU!!?</p>
Great pattern! This is only my 2nd project ever and it took me 2 days to complete both gloves. Will definitely use this pattern again, but will probably adjust so they fit more snugly to my wrists.
<p>Wow, I can't tell that's only your second project. You did it like a pro! Really nice job! </p>
Step 20 not sure where to place stitches. Is it the edge where castoff stitches are?
<p>Hi mgrandamil,</p><p>Yes, it is the outer-most edge of the thumb wrap. Hope that helps.</p>
<p>I had a bit of trouble figuring out where to leave room for the thumb part, but I figured it out and ended up with a great glove! Now to work on my next one... </p>
What is the correct tension?
<p>Hi Annie,</p><p>Everyone holds their yarn at different tensions. Generally speaking, I would recommend you not hold the yarn too tight, or the gloves will be smaller than expected and you won't be able to get your hand in. But you want the tension to be firm enough that the stitches aren't so loose that they are flopping up and down the rows. You can also read through the comments others have posted here, and that may be helpful. Thanks for checking out my pattern.</p>
<p>Thanks for pattern. Cold as,here in N.Z.now so about to try your lovely pattern.</p>
<p>how do I verify my account (I'm new)</p>
<p>Thanks! I made a pair for my little sister for Christmas. She wanted them similar to the ones worn by &quot;Ahsoka Tano&quot; in &quot;The Clone Wars&quot; so I made them a bit longer, and exposed the fingers a bit more.</p>
<p>Love your work! I had to adjust the tops also!</p>
Thanks!
<p>These look great! You chose my favorite color, too ;-) Thanks for sharing your pic!</p>
Thank you! Glad you like them!
What is the gauge for this pattern? I would like to figure out how to make these with smaller needles and a lighter weight yarn. Thanks.
<p>Sorry but I don't know how to figure out the gauge. I'm an advanced enough knitter to improvise and make this pattern, but not advanced enough to give gauges for different weights of yarn.</p>
<p>I've used this pattern to make Christmas gifts for my family and it works perfectly!</p><p>I've since edited the pattern slightly to make a cabled version with moss stitch palms, I hope you like them!</p>
<p>Wow! I'm impressed! Very, very nice job!</p>
<p>Thank you very much :)</p>
Just finished this pair, two hours each! Made using 24 stitches, worsted weight Red Heart yarn on size 8 straight needles! :-)<br>
<p>Awesome! They turned out perfectly! Nice job... and nice pic!</p>
Made several pair on several colors, everybody loved them !!
<p>Super! I love the variety of colors and pairings you did with the buttons, textures accessories. Thanks for posting the pics!</p>
<p>I made a pair of fingerless gloves for my friend, but it seemed too big for her. (26 stitches) Can I knit with 22 stitches and a bit less ribbing at the top? Thanks ~</p>
<p>Yes, you can adjust the number of stitches, but I don't have an exact gauge to give you because the weight of the yarn and how tightly you stitch varies from person to person. But feel free to add or remove stitches -- I just recommend you take note of whether you've casted on an odd or even number of stitches.</p>
<p>One glove down! This was my first real knitting project and I don't think it came out too shabby. I lost track of purls and knits somewhere in the middle but it adds character, right? </p>
<p>I think you did a wonderful job, and the extra texture looks like it was meant to be. Thanks for trying out my pattern!</p>
You did great. I'm about halfway through my first glove and I had to read all the way through. I think you did great.
<p>As it is currently winter here in Australia these gloves are amazing I love them, I made a pair last year and am now in the process of adapting this basic pattern into convertible mittens, to match a beanie I recently knitted.</p>
<p>Instructions detailed and accurate, thank you! The only thing I would say to prospective knitters of this pattern is to measure for size. I did the 24 stitch cast on and it was WAY too tight for me, plus the glove part went way past my fingers. There is room to customize here and don't be afraid to do so before you finish. Its sad to finish a project you can't wear!</p>
<p>can't get my image to load, any clue?</p>
<p>yay I am almost done all I have to do is sew :D yay!</p>
<p>This is a cool gift for a birthday. I am doing this for my mother and I am a beginner at kitting and this really helps a lot better then those store bought books. :)</p>
<p>Do you tie off the yarn at the end? Or does the &quot;weaving back through about three inches&quot; keep it from unraveling? Thanks!</p>
<p>Hi sparks_mcgee,</p><p>No need to tie off the end. the weaving through keeps the yarn in place. Hope you had a chance to make the gloves and had some fun with it!</p>
<p>Hi, I have a skein of sock weight yarn that calls for size 1-2 needles. Can this pattern be adapted for thinner yarn? I am a beginner so I wouldn't have the slightest clue in making the adjustments myself. Thank you!!</p>
<p>Hi Kathryn,</p><p>No - this pattern is not suitable for sock weight yarn. Sorry, but you need worsted weight, or equivalent, to keep the gauge correct.</p>
<p>I am on row 28 and have pulled across. Need to cast on 5 but my work shows the knit side. How to I cast on as can't tell by pics? Thanks!</p>
<p>Hi Sue,</p><p>After finishing row 27, you should be seeing the &quot;wrong&quot; side of the work. If you do not, then perhaps the row count is off. Your solution to knit across is actually what I would recommend, OR, you could rip out one row, but it is easier (if you are a beginner) to simply knit another row than to try ripping and risk dropping stitches. Then, you can proceed with purling the next row and that will keep you in synch for the rest of the pattern.</p>
