As far as I am concerned, you can’t have too many pairs of fingerless gloves. They are my favorite accessory (and knitting project) because they are so versatile - especially in terms of construction. Which leads to beautiful patterns if you’re using variegated or self-striping yarn.

And this is exactly what I did for these fingerless gloves; they are knitted in different directions and in one piece – so you only have to weave in two ends for each glove.

To knit these mitts, the following techniques are used:
  • provisional cast-on
    three-needle bind off
    pick up and knit stitches from a knitted edge
    short rows with shadow wraps
The pattern PDF is 10 pages long and contains:
  • written row-by-row instructions for knitting these fingerless gloves for one size (21 cm high with a circumference of 17 cm at the wrist edge and of 16 cm at the fingers) – including 8 photos of the different stages
  • explanations how to adapt it to other sizes
  • a schematic how the mitts are constructed
  • short photo tutorials of the necessary techniques: provisional cast-on and how to undo it, three-needle bind-off, picking up and knitting stitches from the edge of your knitting, picking up stitches from gaps (e.g. necessary after changes in direction), short rows with shadow wraps
