This is an intermediate knitting pattern for those who can knit a basic scarf and are ready to try knitting in the round. It’s knit with 4 needles in one piece so there are no seams to sew when you are done. It knits quickly. Once you’ve made a few of these fingerless gloves you’ll be ready to vary the stitch pattern. It is a simple knitting pattern that lends itself to endless creative variations.
This is a basic pattern for a traditional knitted fingerless glove – the kind farmers and fishermen use at work. Gloves with fingers get taken off so you can tie a knot or undo a bale of hay. We’ve lost many a mitten that got taken off, “just for a minute.” Fingerless gloves don’t need to be taken off to do work.
Young people like fingerless gloves, too. They keep the hand warm while still giving you finger dexterity. If it gets particularly cold, you can pull your fingers deeper in the palm to stay warm.
