Garter stitch is quick and easy when worked flat. Fingerless gloves are typically knit in-the-round. These fingerless gloves are worked flat, with a simple thumb gusset. Once you have bound off your work, a quick mattress stitch will zip the sides closed. You will love the ease with which these come together.

Don’t forget to add this pattern (and Minuet Knit Designs) to your favorites!
