This pattern is available for free.

This is a quick, no-fuss design, knitted in the round. Finished in a day, and easy enough for advanced beginners to cope with.

I’ve made these the longest length as I love long gloves, but the pattern will give you instructions for short, medium and long.

The other feature of these gloves is the “lace” effect in the thumb gusset, giving the gloves a slightly lighter look to counter the denseness of the fluffy possum.

But you could also knit the gusset in K1, M1 if you need them freeze-proof.

You could substitute any heavy DK or light worsted weight yarn for this pattern. The longest pair only takes approx 70g of yarn maximum, so it should be possible to knit a pair of short gloves out of one 50g ball if you are using a different yarn.
