Easy Fingerless Gloves Pattern

Say goodbye to cold hands this winter with these easy-to-knit fingerless gloves pattern.

As we head into the cooler months, do you have memories of your hands being too cold to do a fiddly job, or even so cold that they ache? 

These fingerless gloves will keep your hands warm and snug while leaving your fingers free to do what they need to do. They’re small enough to keep in a pocket and versatile enough to be useful around the home and outdoors.

If you’re new to knitting, this a great project to start on. The gloves are knitted flat, the pattern is straightforward, and the number of stitches doesn’t change. After a night or two with your wool and needles, or on a rainy weekend, you’ll find these gloves will take shape in no time.

What you’ll need to make your fingerless gloves pattern

The pattern requires 70–90 grams of 8 ply wool. If you love blending colours, try using two strands of 4 ply wool to make 8 ply. If you have 10 ply wool, it can be used with this pattern, too. It will just make a slightly thicker and larger glove in both length and width. 

Using a different colour on the wrist can be a good way to use up any leftover wool that’s too small for other projects. Mix and match and let your colour choices inspire you. 

Once you’ve settled on your wool, you’ll need a pair of 4mm straight knitting needles, a pair of 4.5mm straight needles, a darning needle for sewing and a pair of scissors.
