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