These fingerless gloves will keep you cozy whether you’re picking apples, watching a football game, or getting dressed after finding out that it’s up to you to save the world from zombies!

Knit from the bottom-up, these fingerless gloves feature a turned hem, welted fabric, and i-cord bind-offs. Video links are provided for the techniques that might be new to you: I-Cord Bind-Off, finishing an I-Cord in the round, and Judy’s Magic Cast-On. Additionally there is a link to an article on the increases used that clearly illustrates how they are worked.

This pattern uses:
β€’ Knitting In the round
β€’ Casting on with backward loop
β€’ Knitting 2 stitches together
β€’ Judy’s Magic Cast-On
β€’ I-Cord bind-off
β€’ RLI & LLI Increases
β€’ Knitting through the back loop

This pattern is written for a “one size fits most women’s hands”, but suggestions are given in the pattern for using sport-weight yarn & US Size 2 needles to make child-size gloves or worsted-weight yarn and US Size 4 needles to make man-sized gloves. To achieve a similar drape, I recommend substituting a yarn with a significant llama, alpaca, or plant fiber included. Wool will work, but it will likely make the welt more pronounced and not as relaxed as they are when done in the 100% baby llama yarn used for the sample gloves.

Many thanks to LTimms, WoollyKim & MargiBorck, the excellent testers who worked through the test version of this pattern and helped me whip it into shape for future knitters. I appreciate you!
