These fingerless gloves are made starting from the fingers and growing to the arm. So you can knit up to the desired length, or until you run out of yarn. It’s a great project for yarn leftovers.
Worked in rounds, they are stretchy and one size fits most hands.

The pattern booklet contains both round-by-round instructions and detailed charts.

For the thumb opening, detailed stitch by stitch instructions are given, so you’ll get a firm, durable and perfect finish.

Pattern support is provided via email, if needed.

Knitting Skills:
Knitting in rounds, increases, decreases, yarn over, basic cables, cast on, cast off.

Definitely a one-skein project!

For a pair of 9-inch (22cm) gloves, reaching mid-arm, you will need approximately 110 yards (50g / 100 meters) of worsted wool yarn (55 yards per glove).

For a pair of 12-inch (30cm) gloves, reaching up to the elbows, approximately 150 yards (70g / 140 meters) of worsted yarn (75 yards per glove).

Merino wool is the best choice, but any soft-to-the-touch wool blend - such as Cascade 220 Heathers or Knit Picks Swish Worsted - works well.

Cotton, linen, silk, and fibres that are not stretchy are not recommended for this pattern.

Needle size suggested: US 6 (4mm) circular needles or DPNs
