About this Pattern


If you’re ready to start knitting more than scarves, knit fingerless gloves are a great way to start learning more knitting techniques you’ll use in the future.

With this project you’ll get to practice two very important knitting skills: knitting in the round with double point needles and increasing for shaping a thumb gusset. Plus, they’re a quick make so you’ll get that instant gratification you need.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started, a video tutorial for knitting these basic fingerless gloves and, of course, written instructions to walk you through the entire project from start to finish.

FAQ: Can I use circular needles instead of double point?
Yes, however, 9″ circular needles are harder to find. If you have them, go ahead and use them!
