Adorable kids fingerless gloves

3 Comments

You may have noticed that over these past couple of weeks travelling, I’ve had practically no access to the Internet.  As a consequence, I did get in some useful knitting time, creating these for my lovely nieces:

These came about because I bought some to-die-for Knitsch sock yarn, in the Cinque Terre colourway.  The candy-colours screamed “little girl knit” all over them, and in a moment of inspiration, I decided to knit fingerless gloves – both pairs have come from just one 50g hank of yarn. 

I think they’re very cute – especially when modelled by their recipients.

I’ll also load it on to Ravelry as a free pattern.  There are two sizes – 3-5 yrs and 6-8yrs.

Hope you enjoy knitting them as much as I did.

  1. I want to make these mitts for my granddaughters but as I knitted the 1st round I ended up with 2 knit stitches so should it be an even number to cast on? Thanks Cindy

    • Hello Cindy

      Thanks so much for wanting to knit my pattern! Yes, you are right. I forgot to mention that – you will end up with two knit stitches at the end of the row. You can’t see the two even stitches as they are on the inside of the wrist, and not noticeable in any event, and I felt that the stitches were the right number, so didn’t add on an extra one. However, there’s nothing to stop you from evening things up yourself if you prefer. I hope your granddaughters enjoy them as much as my nieces do. :-)

  2. these are so cute ,my grand daughter will love them .thanks
