Socks Into Fingerless Gloves





Introduction: Socks Into Fingerless Gloves

I'm a big fan of fingerless gloves. I love the warmth along with the functionality, not to mention they look wicked cool! This is my first real instructable to please bear with me...

Materials needed:
•snazzy high socks
•basic knowledge of a blanket stitch

Step 1: Lay Out the Sock

Get your sock and lay it out. Smooth out any bumps to prevent an uneven cut

Step 2: Cut!

Cut at least one inch before the heel.

The cut part of the sock will now be the bottom on the fingerless glove. I like to keep this part raw without any seaming.

Step 3: Cut for Thumb

Cut a .75 slit starting 2 inches from the top of the sock.

Step 4: Seam Thumb Opening

I did a blanket stitch for the thumb seam. You can easily google help with this if you are unfamiliar with this stitch.

I stitched in about .25 inches from the cut. The fabric should roll in a bit to allow the stitch to hide the raw edge.

Step 5: Try On

You're done!  Try it on and see how it fits.

    that waa so cool im going to make them for my friend

    Is this unisex, girls or..... just wondering

    I'd suspect that it's unisex, all dependent on what style of sock of course!

    I just finished mine! Thanks very much for this, they fit perfect! ^_^

    Cool and not too hard! Mine turned out awesome and I used the spare below-the-heel bits to make an iPod case.

    What happens to the edge that you cut? How do you finish it off? Use a serger machine? If not, doesn't it fray / unravel?

    Very cool, by the way!

    i left the cut raw and so far it hasn't frayed. The edge does roll a bit which i think may help from keeping it from fraying. I tried hand sewing the edge but it ended up being too tight so i removed the stitches. I imagine a serger machine would work great but I haven't personally tried that.
