Super-Funky fingerless gloves

These gloves are knitted with some yarn I got for Christmas one year without a label, so I have no idea what type it is. As long as the yarn you use is either sport weight or DK weight and knits up in the correct gauge it should be fine. Since these gloves are worked back and forth on two needles and use basic stitches, these are an excellent first or second project. Hey, it's quicker than a scarf! Plus, they are great for stash busting and are easily customizable. They fit an average-sized hand, but you could make them bigger or smaller by just casting on more or fewer stitches, respectively.


Materials:
  • 2 Skeins Sport or DK weight yarn in 2 different colors to make stripes. Or you could use just one skein and make solid color gloves. Your choice.
  • US #5 straight knitting needles
  • Yarn needle for seaming

Gauge: 20 st and 15 rows = 4 inches in St st.

Finishing:

Sew the edges of the ribbed sections together so that you have a tube with a thumb hole in the middle. Wear, and enjoy!

I made these, and I adore them. Thank you for the pattern! They're great for keeping your hands warm at the computer, driving and getting puppy treats out of your pocket as you still have full feeling in your fingertips.
