Introduction

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.

You will find the full pattern for free here on this page.

However, B.Hooked Insiders will have access to all B.Hooked patterns ad-free with the option to download and print PLUS weekly office hours to get the pattern support you need.

B.Hooked Insider will launch later in 2020!
