Knitted Fingerless Gloves Pattern


  • 75g aran yarn
  • 6mm straight needles or size needed to get required tension
  • darning needle


Tension: 20 sts x 10 rows = 9cm x 5cm



CO 40sts
K2 P2 across for 15 rows
Next row: P2tog P2tog *K2 P2* rep from * to * until 4 sts remain, K2tog K2tog
P2 K2 across for 10 rows
Next row: K2tog K2tog *P2 K2* rep from * to * until 4 sts remain, P2tog P2tog
K2 P2 across for 10 rows
Next row: P2tog P2tog *K2 P2* rep from * to * until 4 sts remain, K2tog K2tog
P2 K2 across for 10 rows

Shape thumbhole
*P2 K2* rep from * to * for 14 sts, place remaining 14 sts on holder
First row: K2 P2 to end
Second row: P2 K2 to end
Repeat these two rows once more, place sts on holder and break yarn
Transfer sts from first holder onto needle, K2 P2 to end
First row: P2 K2 to end
Second row: K2 P2 to end
Repeat these two rows one more
P2 K2 across all sts, including those on the holder.
P2 K2 for 9 more rows
BO all sts.

To finish:

Edge thumbhole using buttonhole stitch
With right sides together, sew along long sides of glove
Weave in all ends


It is best to use a fairly stretchy method of casting-on and off. A neater edge to the piece is formed if you sl the first st of every row p-wise instead of knitting/purling it, but do not do this for the thumb-hole.

A soft leather palm would be a nice addition? Really

attractive and right "in style" for now. I've often wondered if it were possible to add these to sweater sleeves? and knitted scarves? Have you ever seen an old fashioned Western styled "sunbonnet", as in the kind worn by those in covered wagons in America,

done in knit? I wonder how those poor pioneers kept

warm in colder regions there without woolen hats? I suppose they just used hoods and shawls? God bless you. : )

Hi Beth,

Thank you for the Knitted Fingerless Gloves pattern, I will be sure to knit a pair for myself and then who knows, perhaps a few pairs for friends. I have a pattern for some "Pedicure Socks" that I hope to one day knit, have to get back in the swing of things with the double pointed needles and some practicing of the socks first, it has been quite some time since I knitted socks.

This Fingerless glove pattern is nice, it is on straight needles. Thank you again for this pattern.

Have a great day,


Southeastern, Massachusetts

I am fairly new to knitting and so far am doing very well with this pattern. However I don't understand what it means by "break yarn". I would appreciate any help. Thanks, MJ
