I’m excited to share an awesome knitting pattern with you today. I’ve made several different pairs of gloves over the years and they’ve been great. They are perfect for keeping my hands warm when I’m typing, playing the piano or when I need to text or use my phone. I’ve combined all of the best elements of different patterns I’ve tried into one awesome, perfect fingerless glove pattern. These gloves are quick to make and feature a broken rib stitch pattern that adds a nice feminine detail. I chose a self-striping yarn in fun colors and the finished gloves are so playful and happy. It’s such a fun project. Are you ready to get stitching? Follow along as I show you how to knit gloves.
- Lion Brand Self Striping Yarn (I used Tutti Frutti)
- Size 7 Double Pointed Needles (DPN’s)
- Scrap Yarn
- Large Eye Needle
Broken Rib Stitch: Knit even rows. K2 P1 odd rows
m1r: Make a right side increase by picking up the bar between stitches from back to front, then knit into the front of the picked up stitch.
m1l: Make a left side increase by picking up the bar between stitches from front to back, then knit into the back of the picked up stitch.
sl: Slip a stitch from left needle to right needle without knitting it.
psso: Pass the SL over a worked stitch off of the right needle.
k2tog: Knit two stitches together
How to Knit Gloves Pattern:
Cast on 34 stitches and divide evenly onto three DPN’s. Join to work in the round.
Rnd 1: M1R, K1, M1L, knit around
All Even Rows: knit around
Rnd 3: M1R K3, M1L, knit around
Rnd 5: M1R, K5, M1L, knit around
Rnd 7: M1R, K7, M1L, knit around
Rnd 9: M1R, K9, M1L, knit around
Rnd 11: Thread a scrap of yarn through the needle, then use it to slip the 11 stitches within the “triangle” of the gusset onto the yarn. Cast on 4 stitches, then join and knit around the main part of the glove, leaving the 11 stitches on the scrap yarn alone.
Rnd 13: Knit around until you reach the last 5 stitches. Then sl1, k1, psso, k2, k2tog (you will need to use a stitch from the right-hand needle).
Knit 5 rounds.
Switch to the broken rib stitch for 14 rounds. Bind off.
Weave in ends and you are done! These gloves are not right or left hand specific, so repeat the pattern exactly to make the second glove in the pair.
