Ripple Fingerless Gloves
The ones here are knitted flat and in garter stitch with a wave pattern. One edge of the flat row is the thumb around which the mitt shaped in short rows. It starts with a provisional cast on and ends with a row of grafting in garter stitch. Afterwards the side seams are sewn up.
This is not a beginner pattern.
The pattern PDF is 12 pages long and contains
- written row-by-row instructions for knitting a mitt **in one size** (slight adjustments can be made by using a different needle size)– including six photos of the different stages
- a pattern chart
- short photo tutorials for the following techniques: provisional CO with a crochet hook and how to undo it, grafting in garter stitch, short rows with wrap and turn and picking up the wraps
I knitted two pairs – one with 2.5 mm needles and one with 3 mm needles – see last photo:
- With 2.5 mm needles 28 ridges (56 garter stitch rows) gave me 10 cm in height and 25 sts gave 10 cm in width (with an unblocked swatch, since I didn't block the mitts). The finished piece knitted with 2.5 mm needles is about 19 cm high (at it's highest point) and about 17 cm in diameter (without just below the thumb).
- With 3 mm needles 26 ridges (53 garter stitch rows) gave me 10 cm in height and 23 sts gave 10 cm in width (also with unblocked swatch). The finished piece measures about 20 cm in height and about 19 cm in diameter (just below the thumb).
