I had quite a bit of left over yarn from making my Linen Stitch Cowl so it clearly was meant to be a matching set!

These fingerless gloves are made in the round starting with the arm and increasing over the hand before splitting for the thumb and finger holes.

You can adjust the pattern to suit by adding multiples of 2 to the starting chain.  The pattern makes medium sized gloves for an adult woman – the best thing to do is check that your foundation round is big enough before continuing with the pattern.

For longer gloves, work more rounds before starting to increase.

Materials:

135m (50g) dk wool – 68m (25g) each of two contrasting colours.  I used Manos Del Uruguay Manos Silk Blend DK in Taurus and Cream.

Hook – 5mm (or one size up from whatever is recommended on the ball band)

2 locking stitch markers (useful but not essential)

Pattern:

Left Glove:

Ch 29, do not join.

You will have a nicer edge if you work into the back bumps of the chain for Row 1.

Row 1: ch2 (counts as sc, ch1), sc into 4th ch from hook, *ch1, sk 1 ch, sc into next ch, repeat from * until 1 ch remains, ch1, sl-st into the first ch-sp to join to make a loop, ch2.

Place a st marker into the loop on the hook and remove the hook.  Check that your glove is the right size for your arm – if too small or large, start again with a longer/shorter chain.

Weave in the tail to join the bottom edge together – there should be 15 ch-sps.

Round 2: With the second colour, join into the ch-sp adjacent to the join.  Ch2 (counts as sc, ch1), *sc in next ch sp, ch1, repeat from * around, and keeping the ch2 of the last colour used behind the ch, sl-st into the first ch-sp to join.  Ch2 and slide the loop off the hook, using a locking stitch marker to hold the loop.

Round 3: Insert the hook in the loop of the next colour and remove the stitch marker.  Sc into the ch-sp directly in line with the loop.  *Ch1, sc in next ch-sp, repeat from *around, ch1 and join with a sl-st into the first sc made, ch2 and place the stitch marker to hold the loop as before.

Repeat R3 9 more times, or until your glove is the desired length – you are finishing this section approximately at the wrist.

Round 4: Insert the hook in the loop of the next colour and remove the stitch marker.  Sc into the ch-sp directly in line with the loop.  Ch1, sc in next ch-sp, ch1, sc in the same ch-sp (it will contain 2 sc’s), *Ch1, sc in next ch-sp, repeat from *around, ch1 and join with a sl-st into the first sc made, ch2 and place the stitch marker to hold the loop as before.

Round 5&6: repeat r3

Round 7: repeat round 4 (this will be with the opposite colour to the previous increase round 4)

Round 8&9: repeat R3

Round 10: Insert the hook in the loop of the next colour and remove the stitch marker.  Sc into the ch-sp directly in line with the loop.  Ch1, sc in next ch-sp, ch1, sc in next ch-sp, ch1, sc in the same ch-sp (it will contain 2 sc’s), *Ch1, sc in next ch-sp, repeat from *around, ch1 and join with a sl-st into the first sc made, ch2 and place the stitch marker to hold the loop as before.

Work 7 more Round 3’s before working Round 11 to divide off the thumbhole.  If you need a larger thumbhole, make the ch5 into a ch7 in round 11.

Round 11: Insert the hook in the loop of the next colour and remove the stitch marker.  Sc into the ch-sp directly in line with the loop.  *Ch1, sc in next ch-sp, repeat from * 3more times.  Ch5, sk 3 ch-sps, sc into next ch sp.

*Ch1, sc in next ch-sp, repeat from *around, ch1 and join with a sl-st into the first sc made, ch2 and place the stitch marker to hold the loop as before.

On Round 12, when you reach the chain made for one side of the thumbhole, work an sc into the 2nd  and 4th ch instead of into ch1 spaces.

Round 12: Repeat R3.

Work 8 more R3’s (or as many as you need such that the gloves reach your first finger joint).

Thumbhole:

Join the same colour yarn used for R11 into the ch1 sp used in R11 before the ch5 was made – there will be 2 sts worked in this ch1-sp.  Make sure you are working in the same direction as before.

TR1: ch2 (counts as sc and ch1), sc in next ch-sp, ch1, repeat from * 3 more times, ch1, sc into ch- sp (the chain is upside down – it is the last of the ch5 made in R11), ch1, sc into ch- sp (the chain is the 3rd of the ch5 made in R11), ch1, sc into ch- sp (the chain is the 1st of the ch5 made in R11), join into the first ch of the round with a sl-st. (You should have 7 ch-sps).

TR2:  Work as per Round 2

TR3&4: repeat Round 3.

Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Right Glove:

Work up to the start of Round 4 as per Left Glove.

Round 4: Insert the hook in the loop of the next colour and remove the stitch marker.  Sc into the ch-sp directly in line with the loop.  *Ch1, sc in next ch-sp, repeat from *around. Ch1, sc into same ch-sp just used.  Ch1 and join with a sl-st into the first sc made, ch2 and place the stitch marker to hold the loop as before.

Round 5&6: repeat r3

Round 7: This will be with the opposite colour to the previous increase round 4)

Insert the hook in the loop of the next colour and remove the stitch marker.  Sc into the ch-sp directly in line with the loop.  *Ch1, sc in next ch-sp, repeat from *around until 1 ch-sp remains. Ch1, sc into same ch-sp just used, ch1, sc in final ch-sp.  Ch1 and join with a sl-st into the first sc made, ch2 and place the stitch marker to hold the loop as before.

Round 8&9: repeat R3

Round 10: Repeat Round 7.

Work 7 more Round 3’s before working Round 11 to divide off the thumbhole.  If you need a larger thumbhole, make the ch5 into a ch7 in round 11.

Round 11: Insert the hook in the loop of the next colour and remove the stitch marker.  Sc into the ch-sp directly in line with the loop.  Count 8 ch-sps back from the first ch-sp used and place a stitch marker. *Ch1, sc in next ch-sp, repeat from *around the row until you have reached the st marker, working into this ch-space as usual.  There will be 7 chain sps left in the round.

Ch5, sk 3 ch-sps, sc into next ch sp.  *Ch1, sc in next ch-sp, repeat from * 2 more times, ch1 and join with a sl-st into the first sc made, ch2 and place the stitch marker to hold the loop as before.
