Tusind tak!


Sometimes small discussions on social media can lead to interesting ideas … some time ago, under an Instagram-post of a friend we talked about fingered gloves. E.g. that I had never tried to knit them and that it wouldn’t be a preferred project for me anyway, since I don’t like pieces where you have to cut yarn a few times in the middle of a project and consequently have to weave in more than two ends … that got me thinking whether it would be possible to knit a fingered glove without cutting yarn - and it felt like a challenge :)

In the afternoon I started - beginning at the pinkie edge of the hand and knitting sideways, occasionally binding off and casting on stitches. The whole thing worked surprisingly well and I had to frog back fewer times than expected.

I was rather pleased with the result - a fingered glove knitted sideways with only two ends to weave in. So here’s the pattern!

So, thanks for the idea!

You need the following techniques to knit these gloves

  • magic CO
  • three-needle BO
  • figure-8 CO
  • short rows with wrap & turn
