With winter reaching its extreme limits, there's one thing we all don't want to step out without. And that thing is gloves. Winter is also synonymous with knitting, and if you're a beginner at knitting, gloves are the perfect thing to begin with. In today's blog post, we will share with you easy ways to knit gloves with fingers or fingerless gloves, so let's get started.
Step-by-step Guide To Knit Gloves Without Fingers
Figure out what size fits your hand well and also the number of stitches that need to be cast. Don't just blindly follow the size guidelines from anywhere, or else you might end up with gloves that don't even fit you.
Next up, you want to start knitting the glove's body using the Stockinette stitch pattern. You already calculated the number of needed stitches; cast them with three extra ones. Leave a small tail for seaming on. Adjust the number of rows based on the size of your hands.
Time to knit the thumb area for which you'll need some stitches on the right side, just in the middle of your project, and now you start filling the gap with the help of a backward loop.
The final step is seaming, but before that, you should block your fingerless gloves as it gets difficult later. Now, start seaming the edges using the mattress stitch, and simply close your square into a tube. Invert your gloves for easier access, and voila! Your fingerless gloves are ready to be styled!
How To Knit Gloves With Fingers
- Follow step 1 from the above as it is, and then we move on to the 2nd step, which is knitting the glove's cuff. Consider using a stretchy pattern for the cuff.
- Next to the cuff is the thumb gusset, but before you begin, divide the number of stitches that need to be made evenly between the needles.
- Now is the time to start knitting the glove's palm, and don't forget to secure all the stitches.
- It's finally time to knit the fingers, and we start from the pinky finger, followed by the rest of the fingers.
- Make sure you have the right measurements for the fingers, and once you're done with the fingers, you're good to go!
Knitting is an enjoyable hobby, and it's pretty easy, too, if done correctly. And the variety you can create in gloves is unmatched. You can try out different color combinations, choose a new design, choose tricky patterns, and much more. You cannot know if you can do it until you put your hands in it, so go for it!
