Cable fingerless gloves knitting pattern

Fingerless gloves knitting pattern:

This gorgeous fingerless gloves knitting pattern is a perfect accessory for people with cold hands. Whether you are at home reading a book or getting a fresh air in the park these fingerless gloves will protect your hands from getting cold and, at the same time, will keep your fingers free for typing, texting, reading or knitting. I have used the same type of cables as in my winter knitted hat so by finishing this project you will get an elegant set of knit hat and knit fingerless gloves. It’s a fairly easy knitting project that can be accomplished by beginner-level knitters and require only one skein of yarn. Get started today and have a fun time knitting fingerless gloves.

Knitting materials and knitting tools:

5 Double Pointed Knitting Needles number 3.5;

1 skein of Alize Lana Gold Classic 50% wool, 50% acrylic. This color is something between blue and green

Knit fingerless gloves size:

Wrist size 16-17 сm

Common abbreviations of knitting stitches:

k – knit

p – purl

k2tog – knit two together

Cable 4 Back (C4B): Slip 4 knit stitches to the extra needle and hold in back of work, 4k from the left hand needle, 4k from the extra needle.

Cable 4 Front (C4F): Slip 4 knit stitches to the extra needle and hold in front of work, 4k from the left hand needle, 4k from the extra needle.

Note for knitters:

The left mitten is identical to the right one until you reach thumb gusset.

Ribbing of the fingerless gloves knitting pattern:

So let’s start. Cast on 40 stitches for the warmers. (I have used long tail cast on)

Round 1: Begin with rib 2 by 2 *knit 2, purl 2* keep repeating 20-25 rounds until the ribbing measures 7,5-8 cm from the edge.

Body of the fingerless gloves knitting pattern:

Round 1: 2p, 16k, 22p.

Round 2-7: repeat Round 1.

Round 8: 2p, C4B, C4F, 22p.

Keep repeating Rounds 1-8 – 3 more times until you reach gusset section.

Gusset section of the fingerless gloves:

Round 1: 2p, 16k, 3p, take another color thread and continue 6p, slip 6 purl stitches back to the left needle, take the main color thread and continue 19p.

(Gusset section for the right mitten, where you worked with another color thread on the 3rd needle. For the left mitten work with another color thread on the 4th needle).

Round 2: 2p, 16k, 22p.

Round 3-7: repeat Round 2.

Round 8: 2p, C4B, C4F, 22p.

Round 9: Begin again with rib 2 by 2 * 2k, 2p* keep repeating 10-15 rounds until ribbing measures 4-5 cm from the row 8th.

Last Round: Finish off mitt – *k2tog, back stitch from the right needle to the left – repeat from * till the end of the round.

Thumb of the cable fingerless gloves knitting pattern:

Draw out another color thread and pick up 6 stitches up and 6 stitches down.

Pick up 2 stitches from the both sides.

In order to avoid holes while picking (2 stitches from the right and 2 stitches from the left) try to twist them.

Redistribute stiches to make 4 on each needle, attach yarn at inside and purl until your finger measures 3-4cm. Finish off finger. Weave in ends.

Repeat knitting pattern for the left mitten.

Now we have a real set hat and warmers. I am so excited and ready for winter.

Yuk, It’s a double pointed needle pattern! I HATE double pointed needles, like many other people! Double pointed needles take all the fun out of knitting. I would rather use just 2 needles and seam up the sides.

well, try 2 needles and seam up the sides as you said, I just have shown my idea
